A-pillar pods?

I have been thinking about getting one for my Ranger, but where do I get one. Summit Racing? Jegs's? Who?

oh righty them. I found them in jeg's today. But, not 4 my '03. I think that it might work anyway. Since the only thing really different is that I have a OS-Handel on mine.

The Autometer pod will work but the handle has to go. Here is a 2003 w/the Autometer 15308.





With the handle removed, a flare and bolt hole remain in the plastic A-pillar trim above the pod. The lower hole is covered by the pod.

Heck yes i will. That's something im going to really have to think about, to get one, or not to get one. Im saving for exhaust and shocks right now.

That new Summit Racing Depot in McDonugh (spelling) is awesome. I went in there a couple months ago.

They don't actually "fit" because the shape of the Ranger upper steering column trim is different. It requires that the Ranger upper be cut away for clearance. In addition, there is no hole for the shift lever on automatic trucks.

It can be made to work but is not a simple, straightforward installation like it is on the Mustang.

There is one for the F-150 automatic (15004) that has the cutout for the shifter and it looks like it might have better clearance on the Ranger upper trim, too. Autometer also makes one for the F150 manual (15005). The Mustang is 10004.
