Instrument Bezel & Steering Column Gauge Pod for E-450

Reposting 'cause I put my original post in the wrong forum (thanx Dennis)

D.
--------------------
Bunch o' questions:

I have an RV on a 2000 Ford E-450 chassis. The stock gauges that come with the unit are very basic, so I would like to add a few gauges. My problem is that I do not know what gauge pods are available that would fit my vehicle.

I would like to add an EGT and tranny temp gauge to a twin-pod unit that fits in with the instrument cluster bezel. I would also like to add a tachometer to an integral steering column pod so the tach looks professional - not just stuck on as an afterthought.

I've had folks recommend to me Autometer pods, but when I checked their website they had nothing specifically identified as fitting an E-450. I sent Autometer an email but they weren't helpful - they just confirmed that they didn't sell any E-450-specific parts (duh!). I'm certain that *something* must exist for my rig. Anyone know of the Autometer (or other manufacturers) parts that would fit my 2000 E-450?

Also, if I use an instrument cluster bezel does that preclude the use of a Steering column pod? Will the tach block the view of the left-hand gauge? Has anyone in the group done this?

Thanks in advance for the help. Sorry for the newbie questions but I want to purchase the correct pods only once!

Cheers,
Daryl

Instrument Bezel & Steering Column Gauge Pod for E-450

I'm installing a Carbon fibre 3 guage pod that mounts right on the dash just under the mirror in the centeron my F250.
I bought it online from APC ,they also have a normal, not carbon fiber one
There also paintable to match your dash.
I'm not sure if there is a company making a-pillar pods for vans
I have one of these on my motorhome also!but this one was from autometer
back in 86.

If you are talking about the Autometer A-pillar pods, they should fit any '99 - '03 Ford Superduty. This part of the truck hasn't changed, and probably won't till they change the body style.
