Guages in convenience tray?

I have a 2005 lariat with the little convenience cubby tray under the upfitter switches. Has anyone built a guage pod that takes the place of this all but worthless storage tray? I was thinking about trying to fit a fuel pressure and Pyro right there. I'd go with a pillar pod, but I like the handle.

I have my ScanGauge Velcro'd to the inside compartment. I ran the wires behind the dash so I can open and close the door still. It is a pain to reach my cope can from behind it now, but I will live... Or find a new spot for the can!! LoL

I replaced my ScanGauge with a Dashboss and never took a pic of it when it was in my truck.

Super simple install - cut a length of sheet rock corner bead slightly less wide than the ScanGauge and use Velcro to stick everything together. Run the cable out the back of the driver's glove box and plug in the ScanGauge. It'll sit about one finger width (1/2") from either side of the glove box.

I have my edge cs and my sub woofer remote mounted in the cubby. Nice to be able to close the cubby and not be able to see anything.

Is it just more or does it seem like a pain(and potentially dangerous) to closely monitor engine vitals (while driving) having them that low on the dash?

I wasn't happy with it there and replaced the ScanGauge with a Dashboss on a windshield mount. Now I'm not happy because I can't watch my gauges and Waze at the same time.
