Icon2 Looking into a getting a...

Trans temp gauge. I figure with all the towing I do with my landscaping business it'd be a good idea to have one. 2 questions though, this is the trans temp gauge I'm looking at Cyberdyne Gauges A221E261Y - Cyberdyne Gauges Digital Sunburst Amber Gauges - Overview - SummitRacing.com Good...bad? And I really want a steering column Pod but Summit Racing doesn't offer any for the Ranger, but would the F-150 Steering column pod work by any chance?Auto Meter 15004 - Auto Meter Steering Column Gauge Pods - Overview - SummitRacing.com
If that doesn't work I'll probably go with this and paint it to match my A-pillar Auto Meter 15309 - Auto Meter Pillar Gauge Pods - Overview - SummitRacing.com
Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Clay

I'd love to have one but don't want to spend the extra $70 getting it.

It's well worth it. I bought one from a member on here and it was the best $100 I spent.

Bump... Will vthe F-150 steering column pod fit? I figured since the SVT Lightning uses the same steering wheel it might fit?

Thanks guys! Thats what I wanted to hear. I went searching deep into past threads today for like an hour haha and I found that Stone was ordering the F-150 steering column pod for his, so thats about as much support that I found for that. Looks like I'll be ordering this soon!
