What is the Purpose of a Gauge?
A gauge is a device used to measure the amount or quantity of something, most often using a visual display to do so. In the automotive world, gauges are small meters or dials used to measure oil and fuel pressure, speed, temperature, air-to-fuel ratios and many other automotive functions. GlowShift offers gauges in both digital and analog format in multiple colors and layouts for you to choose from. You will also select a Gauge Series which defines the look of each automotive gauge. Variable features include a black or white gauge dial, clear or tinted magnified lens, multiple display color options and more.
Why are Automotive Gauges Important?
Gauges measure and monitor the critical aspects of a vehicle which are essential to a vehicle’s proper performance. Not only useful in standard functions such as monitoring gas and speed levels, gauges can also play an important role in ensuring the safety of both the driver and vehicle by indicating when pressure or temperature levels are out of balance. As an accessory, aftermarket car and truck gauges can add a new aesthetic to your vehicle with sleek style and bold looks that are sure to catch the eye of any auto enthusiast.
Car Gauges and Truck Gauges
Aftermarket gauges can add performance, and provide additional engine monitoring where factory-installed gauges may not possess the most up-to-date tech to do so. Certain gauges may also not be contained in the stock cluster that comes with your vehicle when first purchased. When looking to customize your car or truck, a complete aftermarket gauge system could be required to match the upgrades you make to your vehicle. For example, if you have tuned your truck and it is pushing more horsepower, you will want a proper way to monitor increased temperature and pressure levels.
