white glow gauges

Guys thanks for all of your help. I got a set of gauges out of a sport trac. Should be putting them in this weekend. I just hope I can get the odometer switched out, So it has the correct millage on it. Thanks again.



I tried to win a white gauge cluster from an 02 ranger but was outbid so I'm looking at these white glow gauges now instead. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/96-97...spagenameZWDVW It looks like most of the idiot lights are in the same place except the door ajar. Also my truck don't have a fuel reset and this does. Will this work with my truck? Also can you hook them up to so they come on with the headlamps or do you have to use a different switch? I also found this set off ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=320287703815 I have an 03 ranger edge 4x4 do you think these would work and all the idiot lights light up in the correct spot? Thanks for your help.

yes thats what most people here go with, but you can usually find a better price than that if you either a) wait b) go pull it yourself from a jy, if you do this and pull it and you dont like the price they give you, tell them a price that you'll pay and if you dont like it, leave the part on the counter and tell them they can keep it, no harm

I highly recommend tracking down a white faced gauge cluster set off an Explorer Sport Trac. It's a direct swap out and plug n' play ready. You don't have to worry about reapplying your needles and swapping out the odometer is very easy.
I say keep you $$$$ and wait until you find the real deal gauge cluster and not the overlays.

I am getting excited about these gauges. I can't wait to get them. I've seen some images of others and they look good!

I made the mistake of buying an overlay ( the same one in your picture ) 4 years ago. The ' green ' side of it burned out and it sometimes ' dims ' at night. If you have white needles, you will NOT be able to see them at night.

It would be wise to find an explorer gauge setup and swap it out for what you presently have.

Ok one more guestion. Does it matter what time of engine the gauges came from. For instance I have a 3.0. Do they have to come from the same engine size or does that matter?
