Acccessory gauge brackets

There have been questions on the brackets that hold the accessory gauges in place. I had 2 sets both the 03/04 and a set for 05/06. The bracket for my 03/04 set was a 2 piece bracket and longer. It is on the left in the picture. When I got the 05/06 set there was no bracket and Mike Byers directed me to a place that had them in stock and at a good price. That is the short one on the right. I don't know when they got switched but they both look like they would be inner changeable to a gauge set. I thought I read someplace the longer bracket is no longer available but the short was still. Sorry no part numbers for them.

If you are looking for gauges especially the harder to find 03/04 sets watch on Ebay and look close. I saw a set a while back listed as 05 but they were actually an 03/04 set and they sold for around $300

While the actual gauge pods are the same for 2005 & 2006, the brackets are not.
Good information that I did not know.

I think I remember reading of someone "installing" the gauge pods without the brackets and not having any issues but I don't think I'd do it.

I did that on my 03. Had it on there 9 years and it never moved.
The trick was removing enough padding from the carpet so that it sat flush in the console.

I have the bracket too....And have not installed it....I did the same thing.
But it is a pain removing all the carpet and padding needed
for it to sit correctly. Have had it there in place for
5 years...and no problems.
