Dual Steering Colunm Pod

Does anyone have or know where I can get a dual steering colunm pod, that looks like the one below? I have looked though the forums, ebay, and summit and havent found anything.

AFAIK, the only dual column pod that Autometer makes is for the Dodge Ram #15014. I don't know what it would take to make it work on a Ranger.

I haven't tried it myself but the word is that the Mustang/Autometer single pod #10004 is a direct fit on a manual transmission Ranger column. From what I've heard, the only problem with the installation is that the gauge obstructs the driver's view of one of the turn indicators in the cluster. Other than that, no issues.

I think it would work. If I believe correctly, the ranger and mustang use the same steering wheel/airbag just different logos on the airbags, so I would guess the plastic pieces would be the same...

Sweetness. Hmm, the only instrument I'd probably add is a tranny temp gauge. I need to mod the oil pressure gauge to make it actually be a useful gauge...
