The Tinted 7 Color Gauge Series comes with the ultra-bright LED solid color modes Blue, Green, Red, Teal, Yellow, Purple and White. Also featured is GlowShift’s 7 Color through dial lighting system which allows you to select and change the color of your gauge lighting display by simply pressing the button located along the front of the gauge. Easily cycle through the 7 Solid Color Settings and 2 Color Cycle Modes that utilize all of these powerful LED colors.

Your gauge will reflect your most recent color setting the next time it is active. By connecting the orange wire of your gauge to the factory headlight switch, you’ll be able to dim your gauge 30% when your headlights are turned on to reduce the brightness while driving at night.
Why Do I Need An Oil Temperature Gauge?
There are many reasons why an oil temp gauge is vital to your vehicle, but it all comes down to one essential factor: they monitor your engine to help keep it running. Oil temperature is one of the most important pieces of information to know about your car or truck, especially when towing heavy loads or pushing your vehicle’s limits over long distances. Although oil moves through your engine and cools it, it continues to take on and lose heat itself. It also takes much longer for oil to reach its own proper temperature levels, and keeping that temperature within normal limits is vital. Especially in colder temperatures, it takes even more time for oil temperature to reach standard temperature levels. The most effective way to bring it up to proper levels is to actually drive your car or truck and get your engine moving. This is where your oil temperature gauge install comes into play. Having an oil temp gauge in place monitors your oil temperature levels to make sure they’re optimal, and will alert you as to whether temperature levels are running too hot. Ultimately, if your vehicle’s oil temperature isn’t completely warmed up or is overheating, that issue will have a negative impact on your vehicle as well. Oil temperature gauges are designed so that you will be able to detect these types of issues in order to make the proper corrections. These gauges will also provide you with added piece of mind when you’re driving. With quick at-a-glance readings you’ll be able to see that your oil temp is where it should be and that your car or truck is running smoothly and at ideal levels.
