Water Temp Gauge install 3.0

Hi all.

I'm looking into installing a water temperature gauge on my truck. Nothing is wrong with my factory temp. gauge, other than it don't have numbers, which I like.

Is there anyway possible I can install a aftermarket water temp. gauge, and still keep the dash gauge functional? I've read about there being two sensors down there, one going to the gauge and one going to the ECM. But if I unplug the sensor going to the gauge it'l go dead and I still want it functional.

Is there any way around this or do I need to choose a different gauge?
