Question Guage mounting opinions

I finally bit the bullet and got gauges for my 99 crewcab with a 6spd it came with a tripple above mirror mount, but I kinda was thinking of doing a quad pillar mount or who knows maybe both it came with 5 gauges and I may do more. I really want pros and cons from you that have mounted your gauges in any of the pods available don't really want to buy a mount that is a pain to see gauges or blocks visibility of something else. Thankyou in advance, Rick

i was thinking about going with the gauge pod above the mirror when i was adding my air gauge
i like the idea of the gauges above the mirror only because i dont like how much view they block on the a-pillar while driving the truck (but does look cool)

i have two gauges on my instrument cluster, i like them it puts all the gauges in one central place. the pod however does block view of the sides of the stock instrument cluster so it takes a little leaning to see my fuel gauge and engine temp gauge. i will get a pic when i get my camera if you want

I have the pod on the left with four gauges the one behind the mirror ready for four gauges and have the pieces here in stock to do the f650 mod.The downside to the pillar pod is the blind spot you get trying to see around the a pillar and ventshade and tint.Not fun at night.

Thanks for the input so far. Anyone else have something to say on this I'm not sure about doing the F650 mod with it being a standard anyone else done it on a stick truck and would you do it again? I like to do things once so all input is appreciated. Thankyou Rick

I've just been made aware of an issue (by Ken @ kensperformance) in using an overhead mount above the mirror. He says he's had people say that, at night, having that area lit-up makes using the rearview difficult.

Anybody else with that mount find it problem?

Holy crap that is awesome. Soon as I get a job again I want to install more gauges. Where did you get all those mounting pods, or are they hand made?
