    Anyone ever change out old skool gauges for new digital type?

    I love my Cutty but i hate the old skool gauge cluster. Been thinking of changing out the dash cluster for a new digital cluster. Anyone know how to do this? I haven't found an aftermarket cluster that is plug and play so most likely it would have to be custom.

    Dakota Digital is the way to go....

    I've dealt with them quite a bit in old-schools down at the shop.

    yeah i did get a quote from them for about $1k because i wanted turn sigs and a few other visuals. Don't know if a want to spend that much. I might just do an LED conversion on the OEM dash cluster

    Werd. They're the best for it, ease of install and lifetime warranty...

    LED would look good too though...

    I was looking into these for my car, but they are expensive as hell and I don't know if anybody around me can install them. How hard is this to do? I believe you have to calibrate the speedometer or something like that right?
