Boost gauge Location on 05+

I understand there is no pillar mount mass produced right now, where are the 4wd guys putting their gauge after the blower install? Or are you even installing one?

My S/C is apparently backordered right now (at least that is what the dealer is saying), but as soon as it arrives, they will be doing the install on my '10. Dealer promised to install a gauge as part of the package, so I want to see whats out there. thanks.

There are two gauge mounting solutions available for the 2nd Gens.

An A-pillar pod (2 gauges), and a console mounted pod (2 gauges).

Hey Everyone. I bought a used Taco, which has a Boost guage, sadly though I'm trying to figure out if it's cosmetic or real. Any suggestions?
