    There is a slight curve to the steering column plastic housing but for the most part it sticks pretty good if you just firmly press it down.

    Thank you. I thought about those as well (those hooks are holding up my fishing poles, that works great too if you just put one at about eye level). Right now I am going to leave the Velcro because it is holding ok (not sturdy at all but I just try not to bump it). I like the magnet idea the best, and may buy a few to see what it does to the screen. Also still considering drilling and bolting it to the shroud, just would make it a pain to take off.

    Another method, if the magnet idea doesn't work out, would be to try utilizing some plastic panel clips.

    https://www.autozone.com/screws-pin...l-nylon-trim-panel-clip-assortment/517644_0_0

    Option 1: Open up the scangauge and drill a hole in the center (or one on each side), then drill a hole to match in the steering column. Insert the clip(s) into the scangauge and close her up. Then press into place.

    Option 2: Glue/adhere the clip to the scangauge, then drill into the steering column and press the unit into place.

    I never did this because I dont really like drilling anything into my truck. I always try to find other methods before resorting to cutting or drilling.

    Again just an idea to through out there. Someone might be able to make this idea work if I missed anything that would deem this method to not work as I thought it might.

    Put a metal strip on the bottom of the SG. You dont need magnets inside of it. Magnets stick to metal also, not just other magnets :thumbsup:
