DEF tank fluid level gauge

Is there any aftermarket DEF tank fluid level gauge that is available to install on my 2011 2500HD diesel Sierra? I have been complaining about this minor shortfall since the day I bought the truck new from my dealer. I figured by now there would be an aftermarket source for such a gauge. A google search on the subject for such a gauge/product yielded no results. Anything out there?

Why the need for a gauge? Iím in my first diesel that needs def fluid but from what I read your going to get at least a full take of fuel when the message pops up to add fluid.
