    Hey guys,

    Do any of you have gauge pods on your pillars ? Do you know where and what kind to get for our Blazers ? I just dropped in a new motor and I want to keep close tabs on my gauges and right now they are small and down under the dash...not good. Please let me know what will work and post pics if you have this type of set-up. Thanx !

    L8r,

    Auto Meter makes pillar guage pods that fit Chev trucks. they look pretty good. Dont have a picture but I think Summit or Jegs catalouges have pictures of them.

    Any autometer pods that I have seen are for the "new style" chevy pickups. If you find 'em, please post. I've been lookin' too.

    auto meter only makes them for 88 and up trucks. i think that translates to 91 and up blazers

    i rember a while ago i saw a 2wd on here that the owner made custom pillar mount gauge pods for. i have searched the site for the page or post but i cant find it - theyre probably not too hard to make your own if you want to put in some elbow grease. i would start with junkyard pillar trim for the mounting holes, and fiberglass the pods onto it.

    I didn't know if the ones in Summit would work because they are for newer trucks. I want to put them on the pillars real bad but don't know how to get them there.
