looks good but some hot spots Take out that 4x4 bulb and sand down the point of the LED so its Flat bench sander works faster same with HVAC bulbs

Yup they are brighter than stock. I think the blue catches your eye more. I got them from oznium.com if anybody else wants to try. You'll need 5 all together, but order about twice that many in case you mess up.

Yup!! Just the gauges and the OHC. I'm going to wait until I get out of classes for this semester before I attempt the gauges. Does anybody know if 04+ gauges are swappable?

No they're not man. PM Jp7 for pics or check out his thread on his modding of his 04 gauges.

Yours look badass though! Sorry I missed your call the other day. I've been busy rounding up parts for a 5spd swap and my rear end swap lol

04 gauges should be swappable, FMD swapped his. I'm pretty sure the odometer info is stored in the computer, not the gauges.

I don't have cruise, or any buttons on my wheel.. so I didn't have any experience on a mod like this. Good work!

I think he means "can i take the 04 gauge from one truck and put it in another 04"

I don't know because I never really "installed" my ebay cluster, I just used it to learn. (you know cuz we talked)

I see you put your steering wheel on the right way in the light. It was installed upside down in the dark in the first pic.
