Are there different pillar pod mounts for a superduty???

Ordered guages for my 04 f250, with a triple pillar pod from rual at stealth, been sitting for a month or so, and finally got around to putting them in today, well surprise surprise, the pillar pod doesn't line up to my pillar at all.

Do superduty trucks have different pillars, mine has the "oh sh*t" handle, if that matters? Didn't think I'd run into this problem at all. Anyone else ever have this problem?

your pod will mount up to the front of your factory a pillar.... you have to remove the handle.

No it wont, I removed the handle, had the factory a-pillar completely out of the truck and on the work bench, and it didn't line up anywhere for me to screw it down. I must be missing something here, but it looked like a completely different pillar all together. I contacted Raul already, just wanted to see if anyone else had a problem.

Are you trying to put the new pillar in by itself? They are made to screw on to the original pillar trim, it you tried this then you might have received the wrong one.

No I tried mounting it to the factory a-pillar, but the holes for the guages hit the pillar, and it's got huge gaps everywhere that's making it impossible to screw down.

Also, at the top it has a piece that looks like it meets with plastic trim around the windshield, and mine doesn't have that.

This is the 2nd pod I've tried on my truck, and neither have fit my factory a-pillar, its like my factory a-pillar is too tall and skiny for these pods. Anyone have any installed pictures of theirs for me to see.

Getting slightly aggrivated at it, and thinking of just selling them to buy a digital dash mount, although I love the look of guages, and would rather have them.

Guessing it's autometer.

I ordered the autometer z-series kit form stealth-automotive, with the 99-07 truck/ex guage pillar

K, lovely. Found the problem, I was sent the pillar for the OBS trucks. Hopefully Raul will fix it, don't see why not, seems like a stand up guy.

This is what I was sent:


This is what I need:
