Best pillar gauge pod?

I am looking to get a pillar gauge pod for my F350. I'd like one that will house 4 gauges. I've seen LOTS of em on Ebay and online and such, but I've never installed one and would like to avoid the cheap garbage ones.

Can anyone recommend one that is decent quality, and looks as factory as possible? Got any pics of one installed?

I've got a pyro on my column, but I'm thinking an engine temp, trans temp, oil temp and........ not sure on the 4th yet. Volts maybe?. I'm open to suggestions!

I'm thinking between autometer and propod; Looking at the ProPod, it looks like it points down slightly on the top one (easier to read?).

I have a 3-pod from Autometer. It came black and I had to paint it myself. I got the kit through SummitRacing. I ordered the paint from there too. Matches very well. I'm pleased with the quality of the pod and gauges.
