    Are there any plug in units or if I want a different look will I have to customize a whole new dash? Thanks

    I have no luck when it comes to a internet search. I spent at least 3 hours last nite chasing the same products that I didnt want. I do remember looking at dakota digital but they were all digital and didnt have the guages like the link you just sent. Thanks. That summitt racing right proud of what they have aint they?

    Classic Industries has some that have Autometer gauges made into the dash too that are sweet. But I have a feeling that since all the gauges are mechanical, there are no "plug and play" clusters.

    I'm loving my Intellitronix digital gauges. Not hard to install at all, techline pretty helpful if you have any questions.

    I may end up with something from them, depending on how compatible the m1008 harness is with running gauges instead of the lights that the military specified.

    Yeah, probably what I'll do. Haven't given it much thought other than to acknowledge I'll need to deal with it at some point. Far to many other steps between where I'm at now to doing the final dash install.
