Gauges on driver side A-pillar

Has anyone put gauges on their A-pillar? If so what gauges?

Re: Gauges on driver side A-pillar

I looked hard for a A pillar integrated gauge holder but the only ones I could find were for F-series. I ended up with an X-monitor on the dash which shows trans temp, boost pressure and EGTs. Maybe the selection's gotten better.

Re: Gauges on driver side A-pillar

I'm running a gasser so I installed a vacuum, oil temp and trans temp. The pillar guage holder is from Autometer but is for an older model E350. It fits fine except that it does no cover by the headliner fully.

Re: Gauges on driver side A-pillar

I have a triple pod setup, housing trans temp, rear airbag pressure, and rear diff temp.

this pic was taken before the diff gauge went in:

Damn, I guess I didn't look hard enough. All I could find were F-series gauge pods.

Trans temp (not using oem sensor)
EGT (For Diesel)
Boost (For Diesel, kind-a toy, but will show you if the veins aren't opening, which can be a common problem)

Rear diff temp, If you toe,

Air bag pressure, if you got bags

Most others (I can think of) are toy's that the scanguage can't do. Although the volts on the scanguage is not very accurate.
