    Seen the Dakota Digital ones, but a little too much bling for me and too many electronics.

    Thanks for the links, great stuff, I have seen them before but work give me a different computer and didn't transfer all of my info from old one.

    Anyone have anything they have done?

    If your NOT into alot of fabrication. These guys just introduced a new dash face for trucks that will hold aftermarket guages.

    I made my own set up. I just used thick steel and made my own dash face and mounted the guages to that. Autometer has angled inserts to aim the guages correctly. sorry, no pics. Not done with it yet.
