    Purchased the lotek gauge pod for the 2nd gen tacoma. I was able to make the fit work with some work from a dremel and a little modification to the handle. The color however was not even close in color or gloss. I repainted it and its much closer with SEM 15393 medium gray. It's not perfect but pretty close.

    Where did you get that paint at? And also, what size gauges does that pod fit? 2 inch?

    Well that sounds annoying, just trim it down with a dremel or what?

    @WorldWar546 its not a direct fit to screw your handle back in, you have to trim the handle holes and it still then doesnt fit perfectly but I liked these better than the ones that sit on the steering column
