    Autometer, VDO, Dakota, etc. all make electric speedos. Also many aftermarket companies and speedo shops make adapters for your application. See if there is a shop in your area or do a search on the web and I know you can find a speedo shop to help you out.

    hey, check out my setup in the gallery... I've got pic's of a re-done gauge cluster with VDO gauges. <a target="_blank" href=http://coloradok5.com/gallery/Jeffs-Stuff>http://coloradok5.com/gallery/Jeffs-Stuff</a>

    you do have to prelace the sender though. (not a big deal)

    I did use the stock bezels, and I did use the orig. wiring. I got a wiring diagram, and cut the end off the wiring harness. Next I just used crimp on connecters and wired everything up! I can get you a parts list if you are interested.
