Heres my problem. My triple pillar pod prevents me from installing my monster tach on teh drivers side a-pillar.

Any ideas where else i can instal it...must be a flat surface and i would like the light to face me.

No clue. Personally, I would rather have a smaller tach, not a 5". I guess you could make a bracket to your dash. Or, I think this is a good idea, but dont know how it'll fit....mount it above your radio bezel, above the vents, on the dash. You'll need to take out your radio, the bezel, and maybe some other misc stuff. I'm familiar with the Auto Meter Monsters, so you dont really need a flat surface to mount it. Try it out, let us know. Keep in mind, holes in your dash is an unfortunate must.

There is the one that I have loaded. I made the mount for the xm to go on the side of the tach mount.

I like those small ones that are just the light. You can get different LED colors. It's about the size of the cigarette lighter outlet. I have one in my Mustang.
