Will stock sending units work with aftermarket gauges?

I want to buy all electronic Autometer Phantom gauges for fuel, volt, temp and oil and was wondering if these will work with stock CJ sending units or do I have to replace all the units with new ones from Autometer. Any ideas?

For a fuel gauge, the sender ohms must be matched to the gauge. Volts is no problem, not sure about the rest.

Like BioTex said, make sure the fuel gauge ohms match the sender. Easy to match. Oil and temp should come with their own sender. At least my Stuart Warner temp gauge did.
