Pillar gauge pod fit and finish.

Was looking at pillar type gauge pods and was hoping you guys could tell me how the fit and finish was on any given brand. I was looking at the RIFRAF Diesel site and they show a tan for model year 02. I like the idea of a glow plug light. Any other choices?
Thanks.

I bought a black one and painted it tan. I picked up paint and primer from an auto parts store.
Fit seems good. I will try to remember to take a picture tomorrow.

I was hoping someone that had bought the colored item could share how well the color matched the factory interior rather than having to paint to match.
Thanks for the replies and keep them coming.

In your first reply you said you painted to match. I was asking about the pods that come the correct color and how well they matched. Sorry if you misunderstood. I would rather not have to paint it if possible.

I put in a grey one from glow shift and it matches pretty close although I pray you don't buy a glow shift. Not sure if that helps or not....
