I always hated those things. The pillar is big enough and in the way already, why make it worse.

I got the Sun Pro Gauges... yeah the cheap ones at AutoZone. But they're the only one's I could find with the chrome ring around them.

because dumby lights alone tell u there is a problem at that moment and u will most likey need a lot of repairs depending on what happened to the motor...at least with gauges u can see if its work right and if its not right u can shut it down before to much damage happens...

that my 2 cents

guages are vital if you have significant mod's done to the engine, including tuning.

If the car is stock, you just spent lots of money for pretty lights...

From sitting in the driver's seat, it doesn't really look any wider than the stock a pillar, apart from the slight bulges at the bottom which are almost at dash height anyways. I don't see what the big deal is, you'd almost have to have your nose at dash level to obscure your vision... .

About the guages, dont wanna jack the thread, but the ones from Ford Racing says it fits the 00 thru 04, will it fit the 05 also?
