Single Gauge Mount (52mm Vent or Pillar)


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, anyone installed a vent or pillar mount on their 2020 Silverado or Sierra HD?  I've have a 2020 and I need a pod for a single Banks i-dash.  I'd prefer the vent mount so that i can keep the pillar grab handle.   I saw a video for a block8head dual pod install but don't see it offered for sale.  Any info on where i can get a single mount would be greatly appreciated.

I Installed a dual gauge mount from Ben Ho at Blockhead8. Not super hard, remove grab handle/pillar cover, fuse access pnl and the trim around the lights/tow dial. The vent cover pops right out.

 

Send a facebook/messenger message to Ben, he doesnt really have a website to order from.

I have the single pod from Ben myself

@CNY_AT4 - curious how the wires for a Banks iDash would route from this mount..do you have any pictures of your single pod you could post that would show the front and back?

 

Thanks!

Pretty straightforward, run through the hole, around the vent and over to the fuse area.

Ok, so you would still have the cables visible around the edge of the pillar and going down into the side panel, the same as if you used their suction cup mount?  I was hoping they may go down the vent hole and work their way around somehow for a cleaner look. 
 

Thanks for the response!

All cables are in the dash/behind the panels. Cleans everything up.

Just FYI. He seems to be a busy guy. I sent several emails with no reply. I just kept checking his Facebook page for his updates and it just showed up in the mail. He’s good about updating ship time or his back log on his Facebook page.  Communication isn’t his strong suit but he delivers the product for sure.

      I have a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado which runs great but the power windows, locks,keyless entry, heater motor and a lot of the guages don't work. It is also saying "service airbags, service 4 wheel drive ".
      I am thinking this is the BCM or mostly the BCM but I would like some advice from those more experienced.  I have checked all the fuses and relays which all seem fine. Thanks

      Hello All, 
      I am having a boost gauge installed on my truck when it goes back to Vengeance Racing next month to have Kooks headers, green cats and smaller pulley put on the Whipple. Any suggestions on where to mount it besides the typical A pillar pod that I can only find in ready to paint black? Was thinking about doing the 52 MM /2  1/16"  size. 
       
      Thanks!

      I love my 2015 Sierra but I have a few complaints about the placement of some controls.
      1. the heated seat buttons for the driver are not easily viewable when the vehicle is in motion. The line of sight is blocked by the shift leaver.
      2. the console I generally very good, but the groove to hold one's cell phone blocks the receptacle for the accessory power cords.
      3. disconnect in some of the software and entering/exiting the vehicle. I like the automation of a seat default position when shutting off the vehicle, but I find I am already out of the vehicle by the time the option is activated on removal of the key. I'd like the option to have the seat return to its home position as soon as I turn off the engine.  I would like to set the option for the mirrors to fold upon locking the vehicle and not have to press and hold the remote. I really like the options of tilting mirrors on reverse.

      I have added a digital glowshift pressure guage to my 2014 silverado. It requires +12v to enable dimming at night (this is not a variable dimming feature). Glowshift is less than helpful in assisting with wiring needs. Does anyone know how to connect to the auto-headlight feature or some other method so that the guage can receive 12v and enable appropriate dimming at night?
