i wonder if the '97 F-150 column gauge pod is a direct bolt on to the Ranger steering column.....


looks like he didn't do anything to modify it on this page...

I am pretty sure it will work on the auto column.

my buddy has an f-150. i think it'll work, but im gonna go measure up the steering column on his truck to see. i think its a 97 so that should give us an idea.

well i took some measurements from the F-150 and my dad's 99 Explorer and the steering columns all seem to measure the same. Even the hole for the automatic shifter measures the same in all three vehicles. Worst case scenerio, slight modding may be needed, but from what I've seen on here, none of you should have a problem with that. So I'm willing to gamble and buy the gauge pod.

I have one of thoe f150 automatic column pods, and they do fit the ranger/explorer steering columns, they actually match up ALOT better then Bill's mustang one


I have an extra upper column piece and my aftermarket gauge pod, Ill have to take a pic of them sitting ontop of each other to show how they fit

Window switches are there, but not the mirror joystick.

I have engine oil pressure and transmission temperature in mine. The 5R44E and '55E trans are prone to failure easily if overheated, so I keep track of mine, especially with summer offroading.

They're in the 2 gauge pillar pod.
