A voltmeter is the FIRST WEAPON OF CHOICE for any electrical diagnostics... It offers all the info needed for daily operation no need to keep one eye on the gauge ,,, a amp meter is only needed if you get into serious diagnostics are have a sub-par 6V system that needs to be adjusted to run a simple headlight...
Unless someone can explain the difference Volts and amps are the same car, truck are tractor any year model....

Volt and amp meter complement each other,,, A voltmeter will tell you more about the health of your electrical system each and every time you use it than a chitty amp meter ever will...

I spec the # one issue folks have is a no crank the most important info needed is the voltage reading of the battery. Any diagnostics you do to the electrical system requires a volt reading the battery is the heart of the electrical system...

If you need a amp meter put yer old one were you can find it if you need it (it will be a rare occasion)...

I'm inclined to go with Mr. Rosser and a charge warning light. All my Kubby has is the light which is dual purposed as a fan belt warning light ;-)

I tend to agree on the idiot light.
The post 1965 Fords had neither an ampmeter nor a volt meter from the factory. No oil pressure gauge either.
Just idiot lights.
Even if you become complacent about watching gauges it is very hard to miss a red light glaring at you.
