To keep tabs on all that happens in the engine room, we ordered a set of Auto Meter 25/8-inch liquid-filled Ultra-Lite gauges (fuel pressure, oil pressure, oil temp, water temp, and volt meter). ORU grafted them into this hand-formed piece of aluminum to form a clean dash for the truck. These gauges match our 5-inch memory tach that's mounted in the driver's line of sight, are dead-on accurate and easy to read on the fly, and add very little weight to an already rotund truck. To keep everything together and within reach of the driver, the switches for the starter, fuel pump, electric fans, and even running lights are all grouped together.
