A lot of F250 owners have been fitting or wanting to fit gauges to their vehicles.
There have been problems trying to make the installation look professional, like it belongs to the vehicle and not just some instruments screwed to the dash.
In the US you can purchase molded pillar pod instrument mounts that fit over the existing “A” pillar trim. (LHD only)
I have been talking to a supplier of these pillar mounts re a model for RHD vehicles.

If there is sufficient interest they will produce a mount and supply instruments that will suit our Australian vehicles.
Below is an excerpt from correspondence between us.
If you are interested please post here for my info.
Please also contact the supplier directly so that he may gauge interest. Details at end of letter. All dealing will be with the supplier, I am not a dealer.

“The price will be just a little more than that currently advertised. Say around US$359 for a set of pyro (exhaust temp.), boost, and tranny temp. (Engine oil temp & volt are available for the same price.) I would include the three gauges, the pillar pod, and various small parts to complete the installation.

I could include a can of paint that is close in color. This would cost US$8.95.
I can paint the pod for $25. (First I wash the pod, Then I wipe it down with plastic prep. An adhesion promoter is applied to the pod. An activator is added to the DuPont vinyl resin paint to add scuff resistance. The pod is sprayed with 3 coats of paint.)

I can assemble the gauges into the pod and wire it up leaving just the sensors to install for an additional $25. Total for paint and assemble $50.

These would fit over the existing pillar pod. These would be exactly like the left hand pillar pod. Attaches with push pins that I supply and paint to match.”
