OK...was rethinking the Spinal Tap 11 thing and came up with another idea....

SUPERCHARGER BOOST GAUGE !!!! How about tossing in a supercharger and replacing the console tranny temp gauge with a boost gauge? (perhaps a bit expensive)

AIR / FUEL ratio gauge? They come in handy.

Tilt Meter would be cool too.... Perhaps retrofit one from a Land Rover.

Compass?

I like richp's Idea about the weight gauge. just think when people point and ask you what that gauge is for and why is it so high on the scale, you can just laugh and then have the pleasure of telling them.

Are you adding a gauge just to add a gauge? If so, you might as well add an air pressure gauge so you have a spot in the cab to mount it later when you add on-board air. Plus, it looks as cool as the rest in that spot.

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!
