I assume you have the Actia guage cluster. If so there's an option for large letters for gear indicator, or the other modes which puts the gear indicator small and to the right. Did you get the chassis owners manual?

The temp gauge should not budge unless you overheat. Mine has never moved from just under halfway...in 10 years over 30K miles, towing all manner of things - jeep, boat, bikes, cars, etc., in 100+ temps, up grades, nada never.

Oh, and welcome to IRV2!

After my motor heats up the temp gauge is pretty stable unless I put the motor under load climbing grades. The fact that it first shows cold on initial start then shows that it warms up pretty well indicates it is normal. The stability is a good indication that your thermostat is working well.
