    I have a 1977 Blazer and my gauge cluster is faded so bad that i cant see the gauges. I am wondering if anyone knows where i can find a new gauge cluster for my truck.

    Thanks

    junkyard is best bet, there are places that sell new ones, but they cost $$$
    are the guages actually faded? or just the lens? most of the trucks ive seen have the lens get pretty bad(foggy yellowish brown color) , but the guages remain in "good" shape

    I'll second that. I was surprised to find that my guages looked brand new under there.

    $50 from LMC

    #38-8003 if you don't have a clock, #38-8001 if you do have a clock. #38-8005 if you don't have the small guages on the left, and only have the two large ones.

    I'd also suggest checking all those wedge bulbs while you're in there. I could just about guarantee that you have a few burnt out. Getting them all going again made a huge difference for me.
