Got airbags? You could run a dual-needle air pressure gauge to monitor them, or a single needle to keep an eye on your OBA if you've got an air tank.

If you do a lot of running of accessories with the engine off, an ammeter is useful to keep an eye on your discharge rate.

That's about all I can think of.

Clock....?
Drive pressure would be a nice one to have in the cab.
Or a air filter restriction, A.K.A. donaldson gauge

Waiting on EFI live for a 1993,
2" exhaust (think about it.....velocity!)
Rail pressure maxed out

I'd put in a coolant temp gauge, that way you can tell exactly where it is.

An "ammeter" measures current in series (in-line) with the circuit so that all electrons flowing through the circuit also have to go through the meter.
