    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?

    From the site:

    Unless specified, all pods are designed for 52mm (2 1/16") gauges.

    I had this pillar pod but quickly sold it. You have to mod it to fit your truck so it doesn't simply bolt in place.

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

    I believe so but I didn't even try to fit it up. It was flimsy and I just didn't like how it looked ricer AF.
