A Pillar Gauge Pod

Does anyone make an OBS 3 hole, A pillar gauge pod that completely replaces the OEM A pillar cover?

My truck came with one of the types that installs over the oem cover. Really looks cheap, so bad I took it out.

TIA,
Karl

that's exactly how mine fits and IMO, it looks like trash. A full cover would be nice, even if you had to custom paint it.

the one in my avatar is painted and screws rite over the factory peice, covers the section pretty well, just up in the top corner it doesnt get the whole thing but goes under the metal trip along the windsheild and a couple inches ad rounds off on the part going by your head, its the one in my avatar

Nobody makes one that I'm aware of because the shipping cost goes WAY up for the size of box needed for a complete OBS A-pillar vs. just the pillar portion. I just sold the passenger side A-pillar from my wrecked truck to a member on here and it cost almost $30 to ship because of the size of the box.
Done right the aftermarket ones look just fine, I can get a pic of mine if needed.

NICE looking gauges! What gauge is that on the right hand side of the column?
