Autometer is the best.

Autometer seems to be the one that works the most.

I've been really happy with the $50 set of 3 from Speedway. Comes with temp, oil and volts. Plus the bracket. I have a set in the Wagoneer and in my 54 Buick.

Get an electric one - it's sooooo much easier to hook up and there's no oil line to plumb into the cab with the chance of it leaking or worse, coming apart and blowing hot oil all over you and your interior. It's rare, but it does happen. There's plenty of options out there, autometer, autogage, vdo, they all have inexpensive ones. I like the full sweep ones if the range is 0-100psi, and the 1/4 sweep are ok if it only goes to 80psi. Otherwise, the needle isn't going to move much with our psi ranges.

Ditto on the Auto Meter. I installed a set in my rig years ago and never looked back. I have had no issues with them. The best part is that they actually read correctly. "The factory gauges seemed to be for novelty purposes only" (quoted from another member, cannot remember who)
