Anyone without power windows put a gauge here. I have been thinking about it. Seems like plenty of room behind it.

I'd look at an angled ring to go behind it. Don't remember who makes them, maybe summit has them. A flat gauge there would be hard to read/look weird.

The gauge I have right now is a digital volt gauge so I don't thing it would be hard to read. Plus its nothing important just thought id throw it in somewhere since I have it. My brother gave it to me because he doesn't need it anymore.

I dont get why people think that, someone said that in the thread where the guy made the 3 mount pod on top of the center of dash. Our radios are mounted flat and not angled towards drivers seat, not hard to read the radio :laughing:

Look at any gauge at an angle. It makes the needle look differently along it's reading scale. Reading a flat display from an angle is not like reading an analog gauge..

Looks more toward 12v than hardly 11v. It'd annoy the crap out of me to look at a gauge from an angle.

ok yeah I agree now, wasnt thinking about how they would be off a little when on a angle. Just get digital :laughing:

I've had that center part out to swap my radio and yeah, there is plenty of room on the back side of the panel.

Did it. Easy as hell. 2 inch holesaw and she fits nice and snug. Looks awesome. Maybe one day ill but a gauge there that does something useful.
