I believe there is a warning light if it is low, however it would be nice to have a gauge.

That light only comes on in extreme cases. Probably like you are over a quart low. I think the manual even says somewhere it can't be used as an accurate gauge as to whether it is low unless it is extreme.

A real oil pressure gauge would be nice. Mots of the newer vehicles that appear to have a gauge, actually don't. It's a idiot light in disguise! The left silver dash panel is screaming for one. Someone needs to workup a electronic gauge, mounting, sensor/sending unit, etc. and post it. Ron

Yup, us FJ owners are missing an oil pressure gauge! You might be able to put one on the bottom portion of the tachometer?

Yes, a REAL oil pressure gauge would be nice. My Ford Escape had one of the on/off idiot light gauges that really meant nothing other than the light was off.

How about altimeter plus a true 3-axis accelerometer with playback?

Over the weekend, I had a dealer loaner Tundra (4.0L V6) that appeared to have an idiot gauge. When you'd start engine, the gauge would jump up to the center of the scale and wouldn't move. Not sure if all Tundra's have that.
