gauge location question

i wanna get 5 gauges and i cant figure out where i want to put the fifth gauge. i would like a 3 pod pillar, a steering column gauge, then i dont know where i would put the fifth. i kinda would like it to be under the dash down toward the 4wd but i cant find a single pod for there. maybe on the dashboard like hanging down from the speedometer area? what do you guys think?

and if you can direct me toward a single under the dash pod like i was looking for that'd be appreciated. THANKS

What about a 3 gauge on the pillar and a 2 on overhead?

I have a three pillar setup and DPTuner on the steering column. I will eventually have three more guages which will go in an overhead pod above the rearview mirror. I don't like the other options of having them below the dash since they would be out of my line of sight. Plus gauges above the rearview would help block sunlight where the visors don't reach, lol.

Another option is the Autometer dual console mount (they didn't have a pic on their website but I found this)

Auto Meter 15003 Steering Column and Dash Mount Gauge Pods

And its pretty cheap...

CSIPSD has a but load of gauges, I really don't think 5 are needed for most folks but hey it's your truck. I would do the 3 gauge A pillar and two overhead, I normally don't recommend the overhead because of direct sunlight can blind you, but it is better than under the dash. Under the dash requires you to take your eyes off the road for to long to read them.
