get a cluster with the factory tach. a tach on a pillar pod is going to be tiny. and if you stick a big one there it wont look right. eek

here is a link to ebay, these guys sell a 2 pod for pillar molded to a TEE. This is what I have in mine, and my ol man just got one for his ranger.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/93-02...Q5fAccessories

I would run oil pressure and water temp in the pod.
