Triple Guage Mounting

Good evening all... Now that I got my charging issue figured out, Im ready to add some guages and start driving her(after a paintjob) Im thinking of the boost and pyro guages for the pillar and I want to add the Summit Racing Triple Guage pod with Voltmeter, Oil Pressure, and Water Temp. I like those guages because they are sort of period correct and looks like it would belong in my truck. Where is the best place to mount the guages? Im trying to go for a clean, OEM type of look but if thats unavoidable, then it is what it is. Thanks!

If you wait a little while autometer is making a 3 gauge pillar pod specifically for our trucks.

Alot of people will take a 2 gauge pillar pod and use a single one.

The 2nd gen dash 3 gauge pod will work with some trimming.

The 2nd gen steering column gauge pod works aswell .... just saw you have an 89 so nevermind, yours is a different steering column

I got the pillar figured out, but I was thinking more along the lines of the triple guage set you can get from Stewart Warner or Autometer... I was wondering if and where people were putting guages other than the pillar or column. I would like my pyro and boost on the pillar and a tasch on the column. But I was looking for ideas for my triples.

I originally had my 2 of my gauges on my dash, and one on my column...89 wiring and column in my 84 crewcab. When I converted to 4wd I swapped all the 1993 donor stuff over. I did not want to mount he gauges on the dash again...so I did the boost and pyro on the pillar, and the tach on the column. I have to say I really like this set-up!!
