Talking Need input and more then a little help

ok, so I have the truck finally :-)
I have a gauge set, but the KR has a grab handle in the way of most gauge pods, since I have a 3 in 1 gauge for my Boost, Pyro and Trans Temp, I only need a single pod to mount my primary gauge, anyone have luck with the single AutoMeter pod in a 05' to 07' KR SD?? if not suggestions welcome.
I have even thought about above the rear-view mirror since I have the 3 in 1, a fuel pres and 200 psi air pres set so far, but a few friends have had less then stellar results with the over mirror mounts.

Next is the exhaust I guess, since I am putting a set of ProComp MX6 shocks on as soon as they get shipped to my DC.
I am looking for the quietest turbo-back I can get out of Banks, MBRP, Gibson, AFE or Magnaflow (these are what we carry so I get a discount hi hi) I know none of them are extremely quiet, but the one that makes the least noise would be nice.

Well I will stop rambling there for now

Thanks in advance guys

The A pillar, any gauges going there you have to remove the grab handle its in the way all the time. If its that much of an issue then get the column gauge mount and you can place it there its a single pod mount, not the greatest set-up but probably do for what your looking for.

As for the exhaust well if your looking for quite then leave the Cat and Muffler in, simple as that, but whats the point ? your still gonna have restrictions you might as well keep the factory exhaust, if you get an exhaust its to help the truck breath better, if anything delete the cat and leave the muffler or get a performance muffler to help damping the sound.

the column mount fits the 05? iirc I only saw listing for up to 04, but I could be completely wrong, will go have a look-see in a bit.

Aftermarket exhaust systems with the cat still in don't help any? deleting the cat is not really a big deal to me since we have no emissions here, just want to find the quietest of the loud exhausts, doesn't have to be 'quiet' as most people think of the word, I just don't want to make anymore noise then I have to. I am trying to be nice to my neighbors for once since I head in to work anywhere from 11:30 pm to 1:45 am.

I have the one gauge A pillar pod and it works just fine with the grab handle on my 04 Lariat.

thanks, will check my prices for it. Does it just mount with dbl sided tape?
and then the fun of matching interior color.

I love the cluster mounts, the dual one is nice, but they only show to work on the SD up to 04' so as always I am a year off HI HI
