Aftermarket gauges
 
Ok spyder you must have one since your boosting. Where do you people put your aftermarket gauges? There isn't a whole lot of room inside the cab on the dash. Only place I really see is the little change tray underneath the radio. I want to install a few autometers but I dont really see a good place to put them. The a pillar is out because it has that handgrab on it....any suggestions?

I currently have 2 gauges hooked up, i'm waiting on a company to make an A-pillar gauge pod so i can get more hooked up. Both my gauges are mounted below the inner a/c vents. That little piece below them pops right out and gauges fit very nicely there.

I've thought about this. If I was to mod up one of these trucks I would install an aftermarket radio down in the storage pocket and take advantage of that large area where the stock radio lives.

I see. That WOULD work great...except mine is a 4x4 and thats where the 4x4 dial is.....whaaaaaaaaa:( Yeah I wish someone would make an a-pillar mount.

I've considered it, but i dont think i would like the ending look of it as much as i like what i've done so far.

Awesome! Any sort of ETA? Would that someone be URD?

No ETA yet, but i have seen a very nice looking prototype. They're trying to source someone who can make the kinds of low quantities that they'd need without charging them tons of $$$. Most places that do that kind of stuff want to do it in very high quantities only.

and no, it's not URD.

awesome! Please keep us posted if it materializes.

How about the front 2 cup holders right below the dash. Mount it at about 25-45 degrees for best viewing angle?

Thought about it but.....I like my cupholders!!

Teknishun 08-25-2007 01:06 PM

I've never had a vehicle with so many cup holders, but those are the most important!

Its actually a Taco-Bar. For those who must drink while you drive and Toyota even threw in a bed outlet for a blender. :boink:
I think we have the "AA" version.

Teknishun 08-25-2007 05:26 PM

Man, why didn't I think of that? I'm definitely taking the blender, some rum and some fruit on the next camping trip! :bananadance:
