I'm in the same boat,
might end up going EZ witing with Dakota anolog gauges for the looks of old school.
@CT-BLAZER you have any pics of how your cluster looks after the autometer install.
I've that they don't necessarily point straight but more downwards

Unfortunately, I don't have images or that vehicle.... Flipped it . . .

The gages sat flush , or just recessed in the chrome bezel

As I recall I had to hog out some plastic to to align the gages . The holes tapered + needed to be opened up

Haven't done much on the 91 Blazer.... Have some of the gages....

Will insert gages & film Saturday . . .

Saw the above as a kit for using Component Halogen Bulbs, v. Sealed Beams.

Used similar to run 150 Watt PIAA bulbs, with out burning factory harness.

I just placed my order with Jabin Wood for my wiring harness. VERY expensive but he comes with good recommendations and reviews. I told him what I have and what I need and he says it will all be put together and ready to go. I asked for a sub fuse panel for all interior power (guages, windows, AC, stereo, CB/Shortwave, etc...).

I am going with Autometer Guages (Including GPS Spedo). They will be installed in DIY4X replacement steel dash.

Ill let everyone know what happens with the Jabin Wood harness....

I’ve got a custom harness from Jabin Wood, it’s super nice and looks factory. I told him what I had, what I did and didn’t want and he tayored it perfectly. Total plug & play.

That said, I found a ton of bad reviews on him after I placed my order which scared me. He did get very slow to reply to my messages, if at all, which was a complaint. When he was about a month late (from his time quote) and not replying at all I messaged him threatening to contest the cc charge, he suddenly started answering and the harness showed up in a week.

The harness was worth the price and way better than the build it yourself “custom harnesses” but the transaction was a little stressful. I highly recommend staying on top of him and holding him to his timeline.
