    Who in here has got white faced guages? I just saw some in a new truck catalog today, they are made by APC. They are $94.95, and was just wondering if anyone else ran them. Also wondering if they went to 85mph or they had increased it to like a 100mph. Anybody?? Also i know ill probably get jumped on for it bein ricer-ish (is that a word?) but im lookin for those little things to make it different. Thanks.

    I know everyone hates it when you say "do a search" but, there were some on ebay a while back and it was mentioned on a thread here......so try a search.....it should show up in the last 3 months or so. Mine are white...but they're Autometer.

    The only white faced gauges I've seen were the stickers on eBay. Look kinda cheesy,also they might fade to yellow over time. I would rather have white faced gauges I like the look. Have a link to some pics k20?

    www.acmetruckparts.com is the name of the website. They dont have the guages on the site yet, least not that ive found, but their free catalog seemed to have a fair assortment of stuff for our model of trucks, and most of it was a few bucks cheaper than anywhere else. Even the seat i bought from JCwhitney that was a deal there, was a hundred bucks cheaper in acmes book. How are the auotmeter guages? are they just a sticker or are they real guages? Any pics? BTW, these from APC come with red or darker blue writing.
