Its gonna be hard to do cleanly unless you can do fiberglass work to integrate it into your pillar. I would go with the f150 column pod for ease of use and its easy to remove if you sell the truck. Just my two cents.

Here's an old post that shows the double A-pillar pod and the F150 steering column pod w/ Autometer part numbers.

Pods:
  • Autometer 15308: Dual A-pillar pod (also available as a single 15309)
  • Autometer 15004: F150 Steering Column pod (requires minor trimming to clear the cluster bezel on a 95+ Ranger, fits automatic only)
  • NewSouth Performance triple POD-004: Triple dash pod (requires base trimming to match dash contour. Available as 1, 2 or 3 gauge pods, angled left or right.)
All of the pods above are set up to accept 2 1/16" gauges.

The pillar and column pods are the easiest to install and can easily be reversed if desired. The triple on the dash requires a higher level of commitment since holes have to be drilled through the dash to mount it.


Gauges:
  • Autometer 4357: Transmission Oil Temperature
  • Autometer 4348: Engine Oil Temperature
  • Autometer 4378: Air/Fuel Ratio - Wide band
  • Autometer 4344: Exhaust Gas Temperature (Pyrometer)
  • Autometer 4301: Vacuum/Boost
  • Autometer 4363: Fuel Pressure


All of these pods and gauges are from www.egauges.com.
