With Speedhut you have to change out the whole gauge panel, and if you like the looks of the Speedhut gauges then go for it.
A Ford-sourced replacement gauge will fail at the same rate as the original gauges - ie, it's not a guaranteed fix (although a replacement would have a 2 year warranty). Autometer makes replacements for the smaller gauges that have the same appearance as the original gauges but have a new "innards" that won't fail. That leaves the speedometer and tachometer. For the larger gauges, Kendall has a means of replacing the original innards with innards that won't fail. That is the way to go.
