2015 f350 gauge pod

I am looking for a single a-pillar gauge pod for my 2015 f-350. I can find the pod that replaces the whole a pillar piece (that removes the handle), but I can't find one that just attaches to the bottom of it. I swear I found one a while back, but I've been looking for two days and I can't seem to find it. Anyone know of a single gauge mount for our trucks that is clean and doesn't impact vision? Thanks!

Which gauges are you wanting to add? A lot of guys have gone to using TorquePro, a android phone/tablet based app that communicates with a bluetooth OBD2 adapter. Several on this forum have helped to build a custom set of PID's for the 2011-2016 6.7L to monitor almost all available outputs.

Way easier than permanently mounting a set of gauges.

the guage is actually for my airbag system. I didn't like the remote system and wanted a manual guage. I'm running an sct live wire for my monitoring.

I put the Firestone dual pneumatic gauge and my Viair tank gauge below the steering column on both of my trucks. With the Edge, TPMS and backup camera already in the windshield, I opted for there to get it out of the way. Still very easily seen.

I've thought about that. What did you use to put it down there? Any pics?

I'm seriously considering doing the full A-pillar pod, but I don't want to lose my handle. I have a universal gauge holder I just have taped to the dash at the moment, but I think it looks like &%*$(, so I want to find something different.

This is a pic from my '10 6.4L, but the 6.7 has it in the exact same place. I took the panel off and drilled from the back with self tapping screws into the gauge mount. Easy to see and reach.

it is easy to see from there? That's why I didn't put it there originally? Maybe I'll move it

I just lean to the right a bit and can see them easily. No, it's not fully visible from my seated position without leaning over, but I look at it this way. The bags are so stable and do not require attention unless the roadway changes dramatically, so I can then direct my attention to them for a few seconds to make a change and then forget them for a while. It's not a gauge that needs a constant eye so that's why it's down out of the way.

I've seen that done like that and I've seen it on the left near the left vent. I have my high idle mod put where you have your switches. I do like that setup. I've seen them put into the tray down by your right knee beside the console too.
