    Anyone looking for locations to install additional gauges might find this useful... Four additional gauges (VDO 2/ 16 dia. Vision) were installed utilizing the 4X4 selector plate and forward center console area (PreRunner- manual transmission shown). I installed vacuum, volts, ambient temp, and oil temp.

    So is the panel that you mounted the gauges is a factory part?

    Yes. the vacuum gauge is mounted through the factory "blank" where the 4X4 selector would be. The three gauge cluster was custom made and mounted with two screws/clips on the forward center console.
