Default i need a digital volt meter

Its going in a plow truck. I only have an sd-12 and a brz1200 but the plow takes quite a draw too. I don't want one of those stupid aftermarket chrome gauges, that will add redneck to the truck. I have a few slots to work with, but I want the most reliable one out there, but at the same time as small as it can be. I don't want too expensive either. I think my stock one is messing up cause with 2 batts, 0 gauge big 3, and a 180 amp alt it is reading 11 volts with the radio turned down and the heat off. Thanks for the help guys.

Edit: also, some input on how to hook these up would be sweet. I'm guessing one Wire to ground, one to ignition hot, and one to alternator? Thanks again

Blue LED 8.5-30 VDC Panel Meter with Auto Brightness 320-510

thats what i use, its always spot on, however it's about twice the size of a stinger. I love it though.

i'd do it 1 Wire to a solid ground, then Power to a fuse tap or something, so you can have it ignition switched. You could do a small relay or something also.

That is nice but if I can go smaller that would be sweet. I was looking on fleabay but those all come from zhengen or something, aka 2 months wait for who-knows quality. Hmmm

Well see...its my winter vehicle and it looks pretty nice still for being a 93 with 292k on it. Lol. I've always hated the aftermarket analog gauges that you can mount anywhere. I've already ordered the one pro suggested anyways.
