    The digital aftermarket gauges have a programmable alarm light and relay, so you can hook that up to the buzzer or something along those lines...

    I have used Stewart Warner and Hewitt on my trucks, been happy with both.
    2. (Off topic)
    I keep forgetting to ask and haven't found a smoking gun thread, but the LDS motor is the one that give more power and RPM right? Part 2, what trucks came with LDS, 5-tons?
    Yes mostly 5tons, some deuces were surplused with them but only a tiny amount

    Honestly, if you tune you LDT, it will have similar power to an LDS. I certainly wouldn't go through the effort of a motor swap for the little gain gain you'd get.

    Here is a good thread for a late night read: https://www.steelsoldiers.com/showth...al-differences

    Basically, if you have a late model LDT, swap in the rocker assembly from an LDS and tune, as gimpyrobb said, for LDS power.

    You weren't kidding about this being a long thread! I'm about 30 pages deep so far

    You can always just go to the last ten pages and read the final results. Though that is kind of a spoiler.
    Hey MudMarine, where you in the Marines ? Since you mention Mud does that mean you where a "ground pounder" ? I was in Tanks ie:1811 Tanker. Fun times had by all !

    I am currently in the Marines as a Maintenance officer. I used to use this handle back in highschool on the Pirate 4x4 boards so I figured I'd recycle it here.
