Gauge placement

Hi ford fans! I'm getting ready to install 2 new gauges in my car but I can't decide where to put them I could really use ur opinions and thoughts. I'm a fan of the dual gauge instrument bezel my wife is a fan of the pillar pod. Please let us know what u think the car is as much show as go.

I think next to the stock gauges would be better. It would also be less of a target to thieves.

The problem with the bezel gauge is that the steering wheel gets in the way

I don't personally have them, but when I tosse around the idea of getting them I realized that at the position I sit at, my steering wheel blocks them just perfectly to where I would have to adjust my position to see them. However that may not be an issue with other people.

+1 the bezel would be more discrete. I like it better too.

I have both the bezel and the dual pod pillar. Steering wheel never gets in the way of the bezel guages. They don't stick out that far. If I had it to do over again I would buy the pillar pod that replaces the entire pillar trim piece instead of the one I have that just screws into to factory trim. That's the only beef I have with the pillar pod.
