Thanks! yea it was definatly worth it, for those who are thinking about doing it, i recommend you do, but DONT RUSH and make sure you have the right materials before you start or else you will get stuck in the middle of the project wonderin were you left the flippin paintbrush or scraping off the paint because you used the wrong kind, just take your time and everything should be fine.

alright well it took a bit longer cause the canadian tire in my town didnt have the blue led's i needed so i ended up going to another town when i had some spare time and picked them up there. here is a shot of the led's in action, now they are bright to begin with but because of the blue paint i believe thats why its not as bright, but still pretty bright. and mind you my camera is not the greatest either but it does the job, and its only 5 bulbs that are back there that needed replacement. Enjoy!

so say you marked everything like you said, then you out the cluster back in but enitirely, jus leave the plastic widow off, then you turn the vehicle on with out the needles on the cluster and once once its on and everything is warmed up then u put the needles on while its running and then everything will be back in the original position.

exactly!! when i did this mod i plugged everything back in set the amperage meter back to normal..oil..and i knew the tach hit the rev limiter at about 3000 so i set it on and when i had it stop at about 3000 it was close enough for me did that for everything except for the speedo..drove down the highway beside a stock ranger and set it..fixed the problem with my 33's!
