Default Auxiliary Gauges

Huy guys, I was wondering if anyone with a 4.0L SOHC motor has installed a mechanical oil pressure gauge and volt meter. These are the other two gauges that I am used to having in front of me, and would like to hook them up.

I would go with white gauges since my stock cluster is white, but where could I put them? Does anyone make an A-pillar gauge pod for these trucks?
I'm also assuming that very little has changed on these trucks since 2010, 2008 etc.

Thanks

I'm wondering if these engines have an oil pressure sending unit to hook up a gauge to. Actually it doesn't matter whether or not it's a mechanical gauge, just as long as it's accurate.

Have you looked at summit racing or ebay for them?

I just remembered my truck has the grab handles on the A pillar. What happens to them?
