LMM Gauges

    WhtThndr3 Yeah, I'm that guy

    Anybody got a good placement for gauges on their LMM yet? I saw a buddy of mine who has an autometer cluster on top of his steering column (he had a cummins). In Diesel Power they showed an 08 with them on the passenger dash (didn't seem to practical for me). I can't do the A pillar thingy cuz I got Bose. Any thoughts?

    I've been thinking about putting them in the surround (woodgrain) around the stereo. There's plenty of room, and with the right gauges it should look okay...I think. Maybe one on each side, or two down one side....the options are endless. I don't think it'd be too hard to make it work.

    Anyone know of some low depth gauges? I'd rather not cut into the whole dashboard to mount if I don't have to. I was thinking grabbing one of the Autometer digital gauges, pulling the guts out, and mounting the screen... I'd love to have the entire gauge there, but putting a hole saw through the trim piece and the dash seems a bit overkill. I'm still scheming.

    I am running Tran/EGT/Boost Nexus on my pillar w/boss speaker. I have the pillars in stock.

    Also if you guys are thinking of trying the center wood panel I also have a new piece out of my truck because I switched it all out for silver.


    Let me know and I can get all the parts...

    Nick, what do you want for that piece? I CANNOT find one! Ebay's got them, but they come in a package of about 100 pieces. F that! Let me know what you want for it. I found the gauge's I'm going to use, I just need something to work with to put them in. Thanks!!

    I don't know what I paid for the replacement piece by it self ... I think I have about $350-$400 in all the pieces we ordered.

    Make me a offer on what you think is fair and I will ship it to you.



    Sorry I don't...

    Nick, I just came across an entire set of woods and vents from a 1500 that I couldn't pass up. $49.00 for everything! Thanks for the offer though. I'm going to punch some holes in things and see what happens. Project is NOW on the road.
