5.2L dash mount fuel pressure gauge

Hey there,

Has anybody out there installed an aftermarket fuel pressure gauge to their console?

If so, how's it done?

however you like to do it. it would be fully custom so the world is your playground there.

though fuel pressure is probably somewhere well below the last gauge on my list i'd want.
i'd start with mech oil, trans temp, and....that's about all that's important unless you're boosted. maybe an oil temp gauge too.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

Gotcha.

In a perfect world I would have as many gauges as an airplane cockpit.

I suppose you could run a gauge off of the fuel rail's schradar valve?

If you google you should be able to find some but I've seen people with gauges permanently intalled on the rail. If you run a gauge inside it's much safer to put a sending unit on the rail and run an electric gauge. Failing that make sure to use the best stainless braided line and an isolator. Having 40 psi gasoline spraying around your interior can't be fun.

That's a good idea. I found some electric gauges that will hook right into the fuel rail. Thanks for the tip
