You can get a pillar pod and put gauges of your choice in it. If you have an automatic, there is a single pod from an f150 that fits on the top of the steering column.

VMP and 5-Star tuned no more

I know what you are saying, I have seen them but couldn't find any pics then when I searched. I think someone on Ranger-Forums has them.

I have no idea how to post a picture, but I have a 3 pod pillar gauges picture at the ford truck world forum.
I also have a wiring diagram where you can control 4 sensors with 2 gauges.

Truck is fast asleep!

They make them for the older rangers. Best thing is to check online somewhere. Summit, or autometers website. I'm pretty sure there are universal ones out there.

Cool

HI!... I have a "A" pillar gauge pod in my 2007 Ranger. You have to remove the grab handle though. This didn't bother me since I never use it. I got a dual pod from Autometer. I painted it (SEM) to match the interior. I run coolant temp and trans temp gauges in it.

I'd like to get one also but just wondering, does it block your view a bit?

auto meter only makes them in 2 gage pods.
they dont get in the way of visiably, after while you dont even notice it there.
i have 1 on my 97 ranger now for 3 years.
