I wanted to add in-car autometer gauges (fuel pressure and volt). For the volt meter, can i tap into the factory cluster volt meter and re-route it to the autometer one? it looked easy enough to wire by not doing so, but was wondering if i could tap in to the OE cluster instead.

for the fuel pressure, i read its not recommended to plumb fuel into the cab. what is the correct and safe way you all recommend? LMR has a kit to run the proper hosing, but what route (thru engine bay into the cab) would be best if doing so?

Yes, you can tap into 12V almost anywhere.

You don't want to run fuel or oil into the cab. Use gauges with an electric pressure sensor.
