Those of you who have a dual setup do you regeret it? I am looking into one for my truck (see sig) and I am thinking I like it but have never seen one in person. Also, how difficult is the setup for the overhead versus the column mount? (Things like hiding wires, mounting etc., look a little more difficult)

I believe I just may order them then. I know some come black (paint yourself to match interior, but is there any where that has them already painted?

I had a single column pod in my 02 and loved it.

If/when I get analog gauges for my 06 I will probably get alteast one on the column. I am using an edge juice with attitude for now.

I got away from the A-Pillar guage mount & went with the steering column mount and have no regrets.Put's the guages in a very covenient location. Also very easy to install & hide the wires

It took a while to get used to the guage being on the column, but I do have to agree that I like the gauge there better than the pillar. I had both in my 02, and the column gauge was in a better place.

I ran a single. I know some people don't have visibility issues with the dual but based on my experience with the single, I don't see how I wouldn't....I did like the single though :w:

They are very easy to wire. Don't bother taping it down, though. I do like how "close" it keeps the gauge...hopefully I'll be adding another gauge soon and be able to use it again....

You can only get them in black but can be painted to match...Like so...

Any chance someone knows what the dark grey interior in the third gens is called?

My window sticker says my interior is medium slate gray, but I bought that color from Dodge and it doesn't match the darker gray of the dash. It is very close to the pillar color though....

Geno's does not have paint to match the gray. btolenti, the dash is SLATE GRAY and happens to be DISCONTINUED by Dodge! I tried forever to find it when I had my steering column but ended up using the medium and getting over it.
