A 30 lb fuel pressure guage is enough. Ideally, you are looking for 14-16 lbs of pressure.
Check out Geno's Garage. I have the Westach FP, Boost and EGT Guages. I have a 2002 I bought new.

That's a pretty nice looking truck and you should love those tires as long as you stay on solid ground. My dad had them on his 05 2500HD w/ Duramax and 8' bed. They lasted him about 70,000 miles.

I have an early 98 (got the quad cab update but retained the 12 valve) 2500. It came with an auto and after rebuilding it and throwing over $800 into the trans (did the work myself) it decided it wanted to split the one way clutch the first drive home and back to work. Threw that bastard away and put an NV-4500 in it and havent looked back since. Its like a completely different truck. Can pull steep grades in overdrive pulling 9000+/-lbs.
Built right and with a good trans you can get some mileage out of them. My dad had a 91 (brother owns it now, still running it) that has over 325,000 on it. Trans was pulled once to replace torque converter and my dad decided to tear into it and give it a go through (at 215,000). Replaced the seals, put it back together (didnt need clutches or steels) with the new torque converter and never touched it after that. He did plenty of towing with it and never babied it. My only point is they are hit and miss. You get a good one and it will treat you like a god. Get a back one (like mine) and it will beat you into the dirt and rub alcohol on your wounds.

Nice looking truck by the way!

Perhaps the best year of the 24v to own. I would buy it off of you in heartbeat, honestly those are great trucks. The weak spot is the lift pumps, and the steering boxes. Also the doors rust easy so keep it clean and wax your door jams and you should be fine.

It's real easy to make great power with these trucks. I built one for my buddy back in high school, and we made over 400rwhp/900rwtq with the stock charger.

I have replaced the lift pump in the Dodge with a raptor 100. (Has a brand new injection pump now too, since that went bad 6 days after i bought the truck.)

But since the last time i've updated, I've put a Super chip in it. New tail lights, led third brake light, new tow mirrors, tinted the windows and new headlights.

I've also bought a 16' + 2' dove tail Goosneck trailer to haul the jeep on.
