Icon10 My first official mod

Well, my old gauge cluster decided to take a crap on me and so did the stupid
P R N D 2 1 selector, so I ordered a Sport Trac cluster . On to the pictures.





I almost wrecked because I got used to R being P and N being R and so forth... lol. I like it. The gray is a little out of place in my tan truck, but the original cluster had a crack down the middle, so I'll stick with it. BTW, it's really hard to put a dash back together in the dark...

Wade, HVAC = heater controls.

Looks good man! You can always play around with paint on that thing if you get bored! It's easy! I would agree do the LED swap too.. Way brighter! But you have to do it all or it doesn't look right! lol

Some people have been able to get away without soldering the LED's... I did so I could add more to mine.

I got my stainless steel one from a buddy for free cuz they sent him 2 on accident.... I'll try to look the place up and remember if you're interested lol

Yeah, it plugged right in. I swapped the odometer so I had to recailbrate the needle, but other than that it was an easy swap
