    Asd we speak, me and a buddy are installing my air lift compressor. We are trying to figure out where the hell we can mount the single gauge inside the cab. The 2nd gen tacos are so damn curvy on the inside that we are having trouble finding a place to mount it:mad:. If anyone has these and found a good way and place to mount them, can you please help a brother out and send me some pics of where you installed them? Thanks!

    To the left of the steering wheel in the change pocket. Fold it down when you need to see it when filling. Once it's set, close it up and you don't have any gauges visible. Another option, the pillar would be a decent place but I second Tacomaman's response, how big is this gauge you're talking about and how does it mount (surface mount, recessed, etc)?

    It the gauge is already inside this bracket. the bracket is supposed to mount to under the dash. I will try to post a picture of it later when i can. ill measure it too and give you the dimensions. I tried to put it in the change pocket but if it is too small too. It may work if somehow we could take all of the stuff out of the bracket and mount it by itself but i would have to figure out how. And another problem with that is when you take the change thing out, the fuse box is behind it and i dont want to cover that up. Ill have to look at it a little bit harder bc you are right, that would be an awesome spot to put it.

    There is also the drivers side window JB box mount for the supercharger. That is where the supercharger vacuum / boost meter mounts. If you can get one of those mounts you may be able to install it there or just make a new bracket and mount it exactly where you want. Don't forget the right side of the steering wheel change holder or even get a panel mount flush meter instead and then it could be mounted in the center counsel. Lots of options. Just have to figure out a plan.
