Scangauge II Mounting Pic Request

Anybody have a picture of their scangauge II mounted underneath their single din radio? I looked through the threads but all of the photobucket links are dead.

I am deciding between the scangauge II and aeroforce piller mount. I would ideally like to mount the scangauge II below my single din radio, I just want to see how well/flush it would mount. Otherwise I will just go the more expensive mount with aeroforce and mount it on my a piller.

I'd go with an aeroforce just because they're better. You can also do a steering column mount from an F150 with the aeroforce.

Anyway, heres what you wanted

Thanks JD, I'm glad I asked for a picture because I do not like the look of this. Does not look as clean as the aeroforce does. I did see pictures of it mounted on a single a-piller mount and on the steering column. I like both of them a lot I guess I just have to decide which one I like better.

The only question in the threads I didn't see answered was, does the F-150 steering column still retain the hazard switch? I think I am leaning more towards the steering column mount, I don't like how the a-piller mount would block the defroster vent.

Yeah it has a little cutout on the top for it. The mount literally covers the whole top part of the column so it looks like the pod is a factory option.
That's the only thing I didn't like about the pillar mount. On a snowy day i would have to shove a glove or something over that side defrost vent because the air would go straight to the gauge pod

Yeah I don't like that at all, I like to keep everything functioning how it should.

What year F-150 steering column gauge pod works?
Edit: Nevermind... Found it
