they didn't start the digital until 97, I doubt it will be a plug and play..

X2 and Im pretty sure yours goes up to 115 and that ones 125 so it probably wont. You could get an overlay if you're looking to upgrade your gauges.

That's the one I got. Was alot cheaper a few years ago when I bought it. Was only $15 shipped. Here's what I did to mine:



Cut off the edges and put on the bezel from the 97-02's. Thought it helped to update the look a bit.

The bezel looks 100x better IMO. Do those numbers line up with the stock one at night so they get light? They look very different like the size or font or something.

They actually have their own lighting source. Here's the picture from the ebay ad to show how they look lit up.



Not the greatest looking compared to other designs.. but at the time I bought them they were the only option I could find. You get used to it, I actually really like it now.

Yes, it will. You would have to have the gauge cluster recalibrated to match, which just wouldn't be worth it IMO. Not to mention actually finding a place to do it.

This is assuming of course that you're talking about putting on a 150 overlay. Not sure how it will work out if you upgrade to a whole new cluster with a 150 mph reading. I know the tach will be off, the speedometer might read fine though.

Thanks superman, I like them too. For the price and easy installation, they're definitely a mod worth doing if you like the look.

I've considered it, but I'm not so sure what color to go with. I plan on redoing all my interior. Just gotta save up some cash! Do yours have their own lighting source? For the ones that do, what happens to the lights from the stock gauge? Are they on too?
