    The one thing that bothers me about the truck is no oil pressure gauge or volt gauges. I was able to find that Lotek made a pillar pod for the 05-09, but i dont see one listed for 2011. Also does anyone know what sandwich plate i need? any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. :top: sorry if this is in the wrong section.

    There are a few different sandwich plates out there. The fitting size needed is 3/4x16UNF.

    Never dealt or heard of that. I have a GReddy one, and helped install one on a friend's truck. Never had any issue with sensors.

    The pillar pod I have doesn't fit that well. The handle won't sit in properly. No the best fit.

    That will work. You will need to purchase the gauges separately.


    Not only that, but it also creates a larger blind spot between the windshield tags and mirror. Honestly, I hate that fact about mine, but have just been slow about moving my gauges down to the Craven Speed pods. :(

    My loteck pod didn't have the best fitment but didn't need the extend of trimming was just a few tiny gaps and protrusions you could say it just wasn't perfect.

    Yea same here. My Lotek wasn't prefect. There's no major trimming needed. I have to use the pillar and flex pod both. I have room for another gauge on the flex but idk what's gonna go there yet. I'm thinkin a/f.

    Its a prosport Evo. Boost gauge. Love it to. It's awesome. Id use all prosport evos on my pillar but glowshift was cheaper.

    I never put mine up. Bad fit around the handle. I'll look for pods to install my oil pressure and temp gauges above the mirror

    The Lotek dual gauge pod fits my 2013. The gauges are a press fit.
