well, i know i need to get one of these cause really don't want no A-arm pillar set up

the trd pod is quite nice but Gud Damn 350 dollars :eek: :eek: :eek:

the tbko is O.K. and is 150 bucks, guess not too shabby though

any suggestions?

is there anywhere i can get the TRD POD CHEAPER?
seems like PHR is the only place to get it, hopefully i'm wrong though :)

You must be smoking crack. I just got mine brand new from Carson Toyota at $229.00 shipped.

damn now that sounds more reasonable and you can use the 60mm gauges instead of those little dinky buckers!

and i neva knew you had to send them part of your DASH! F*ck that

hey, WINO could you give me a contact number or website so i can order some products from them? thanks bro

"tbko looks like a beat up trd pod" :lol: now thats just wrong :lol:

thanks guys

if the gauges were positioned differently, then maybe it would look nice. I just dont like how the whole tripple pod is angled so that one side has a ledge andthe other dosent. If each individual holder was angled like that, then maybe it would look nice. Plus its too glossy

Just wait until u see the 6 holder im going to make for Greddy's Full Line of gauges.




that would be awesome but too bad im not making it, TRD for me.

well this tbko, not the one shown here on is300.net looks way better that the "tissue box/gauge pod"

is Defi gauges a generic brand comparable to Blitz?

cuz i think defi gauges are closer to stock look... i dunno my 2 cents oh yeah what color do defi gauges light up? anybody?

It's not any more glossy that your other dash materials, the pic is prolly the sunlight. I understand what you mean about the angle and ledge for symmetry, but I like the angle for the functional reason, I can see them easily with very little eyes off the road. Also the price on the TBKO website is $99.

Glogik, does your tbko pod have to those plastic rivets too?

for 99 bucks sounds so good, wonder how long it would take tbko to send this out if i ordered from them?

there are actually 2 options, you can either purchase the gauge holder as shown (notice the small rivets) or you can send in your dash and jeff will mold it to your dash so it becomes a nice flush 1 piece. The regulard pod is 100 but i believe it's 150 for the molded one. Another big thing is the TBKO pod is 52mm but the TRD pod houses 60mm's another think you want to consider.

Shiznit, thanks man! when you say tbko can mold it to your dash, do you mean the rivets or the ENTIRE gauge pod?

dude, u dont need to be a dick about it. and it u want it to look nice...molded it...u have to send it in.

Plus ive heard, and seen cases where people have asked TRD Pod owners if they were stock w/ the car, since theyre so clean. Now thats what i would like, even if it costed 2.5 times as much
