Great idea. I have never seen the rear cargo net. I will need to find one now or make one. Anyway, can you post some close up pictures of the cargo net?
I have an auto meter pod but don't know the number off the top of my head. I don't they make a variety. What do you want to see and I'll snap some pics.I settled on a vacuum gauge as the most useful item to fill in one of the two empty spots in my pillar pod. I was thinking of an analog clock, but: a) I'm too far removed from elementary school to be able to tell time quickly enough to not crash, and b) I discovered my stereo has an extremely buried clock option.
Routing the stiff/curly vacuum hose behind the dash and up to the pillar was somewhat challenging, but I eventually found a path up/over/around/behind the ECM and bracing. I ran the hard line to just into the engine bay, then teed it into silicon hose that should handle heat better. I suppose I should take it for a drive now and see if the vacuum is in a good range after taping up the white line on the blower box...
I thought about getting one of the GlowShift replacement pillar pods, being a bit cleaner than my tacked on universal pod and having an open back side for passing wires and hoses through, but realized in reading reviews that they're also add-ons that only look like the '92-96 factory plastic's shape. Lame. That brought me to the more expensive (2-3x the cost) Auto Meter 17303 pillar pod, but the documentation is too vague to tell if it's a full replacement or also a piggyback setup. Anyone happen to know?
No pics necessary, but thanks for the offer. Is it a full replacement for the factory pillar trim, or is it just a cover that resembles the shape and bolts onto it (i.e., a universal pod that has been tailored to fit over the factory trim)?I have an auto meter pod but don't know the number off the top of my head.

That's because you da man.i took 3 pics even though you said you didn't want them.
well, i had a 2 gauge pod (partial pillar cover) vs the full pillar 3 gauge pod like the autometer. maybe their 3 pod fits better. i don't know.That's because you da man.
That does look like a good fit, and knowing how much you disliked the GlowShift version that I had first considered, says something about being a good critical opinion.
It looks like your pod is angled a bit more toward the driver than mine, so there would be a small gain there to perhaps justify the switch. I was limited by my ability to trim the universal pod to match the tight contour of the pillar. If I rotated it toward the seat too much, I ended up with big gaps along the seams.
Doubtful. The amazon reviews for the Glowshift 3-pod full pillar are full of comments about them being a bad fit and requiring a lot of trimming. That's where I discovered it's just a cover, despite looking like a replacement. I had it on my ebay watch list for months, in case I ever felt compelled to upgrade.well, i had a 2 gauge pod (partial pillar cover) vs the full pillar 3 gauge pod like the autometer. maybe their 3 pod fits better. i don't know.
I'm honored.I've heard of the top leaking a hundred times over the years but you're probably the first I've ever seen actually have the problem.
Well... Cutting holes is the necessary evil, not the goal. I just really like the way cab lights look at night, but I'm still trying to decide if I like them on the Bronco. It might be the paint scheme, but the side view looks a little awkward still with the topper instead of a pickup bed. I'm tempted to just buy the smoked lenses for mock-up purposes and see what that does visually.If you want to make (more) holes in your roof then I would install the cab marker lights.
