    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.

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

    Hey late revival but just curious on what you mean by little modification you had to do to the handle?

    @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
