Gage cluster for driver A pillar?

Gage cluster for driver A pillar?

Postby highlifelivin2kx [OP] » June 1st 2014, 11:01pm

Any recommendations for an empty driver side 'A' pillar gage pod and where to buy one from?

I'm looking to add at least a transmission oil temp gage and an aux battery gage. Oh, and if there are any recommendations for transmission oil temp gage and/or aux battery gage kits, do share!

Thanks all.

Autometer is your best source. However, I've yet to find a pillar gauge pod, direct fit or universal that will work. At least not for a 2003 model year. Pods for pickup trucks will not fit either.

Someone here made one from scratch.

There might be some helpful info in this thread:

Thanks both. Will try to fab one with a 'pattern' from Lump's approach and fiberglass I have left over from the patching I did to some rust outs.
