Yeah it will fit. Or you could always go with the 97-01 F-150 steering column gauge pod. It fits the ranger steering column nicely.

Hi Mark....

The only iffy part about the pods on '03+ trucks is those grab handles. I've got no real experience with the pod on a grab handle truck, but I would think either a: the pod will cover the grab holes or b: you'll be forced to have the pod way down on the pillar.

I know I can't help much, but hey, at least you got a little insight. lol.


EDIT: I'm a noob! I thought you were asking of the double gauge pods. lol. The single pod will fit perfect under the handle! And if you wanted to have a spare good A-pillar plastic incase you pull it out and want a pillar w/o holes drilled in it, just hit me up. I got a set of '03+ Dark Grey a-pillar plastics.

The column mount is a neat idea, but it does sorta block off the tach and fuel gauge. Korey89 has one holding his scangauge tool...

If I remember correctly the pod does cover the holes.
