well all the wires all run down the outside of the stock pillar to the inside corner and bunch up there. i think the only way would be to run them thru the actual stock pillar into each gauge

Yeah I have a custom modified stock A pillar and I drilled a hole and then use a dremel tool to make a hold behind each pod ...... Mine fines fine with all the cables behind it and Iam only using the top 10mm bolt as the one on the bottom has been blocked off...

They are 55 bucks online bro.... No way to can go back to stock now anyways, so might as well go all the way with it...

Is it just me or does it look like maybe the bottom pod should have been moved up a bit to fit the Trinity in or do you think it fits fine the way it is right now?

looks like i may order one just in case i go back to stock.

yeah the bottom pod is too low for the trinity. the trinity mount sticks out about an inch and a half. it just wasnt made for it. the good part is, the trinity hides it so you cant really see it. if i was gonna make this 3 gauge pod from scratch, i woulda moved all the pods up about 2 inches


actually now that i look at it, moving it up would do no good. the trinity is too big to fit in more on the left side. it hits the pillar.

Yeah I thought moving it would solve the problem, but I also thik that the top pod would be too high up then... I think what you did is workable bro... How amny man hours would you say this project took you from start to finish? Yeah get your self a spare A pillar if you have a chance jsut in case you need to go back to stock..

Nice workl!!!

start to finish i'd say about 6-8 WORKING hours. Alot of it was measuring, test fitting, trying to get the 3rd pod to sit just right. then fiber glass and sand x3. then light bondo x2 to smooth out some areas. followed by paint, dip, clear. Now that the first one is done, could probably cut the hours down to 4-5
