Default Water temp guage install

I am looking to install some aftermarket guages in my truck. I was wondering were everyone installs the water temp sensor in these trucks? My 99 only has one port in the crossover tube. Thanks

I used a 1 3/4" inline sensor attachment by GlowShift. I cut the radiator hose and threw it in. It was clean and easy.

I was looking for one of those but I couldn't find one big enough.
