    Boy I tell ya ...
    I love the blue digital gauges, 4x4dreamer, is that in your truck?
    The Autometer Pro-Comp gauges are just too sweeet ... I think I may do something like this, great link and pics guys.

    Say, BlazerGuy, where is the launch button on that rig?

    Thanks for the links and pics guys .. this is helping ..

    No, those are from Dakota Digital Dakota Digital and I plan to have my whole truck done up with them someday. They sell that dash with those gauges for like 500 bucks. not a bad deal. You can also choose between the blue, or green, or a Teal color on the gauges. I like the Blue.

    I'd think that it was a GPS navagation unit not a fish finder. But if it was a fish finder with the sender mounted on the front bumper It'd tell you how deep the water was brfore you hit that big hole in a water crossing. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif
