The white needles will glow with whatever color your LED's are. I kept my white ones and I'm very glad I did, they look great

All Edges have white needles too. When I did the sport trac cluster swap, I also swapped my original white needles on to it. Orange needles look like *** IMO

i wish you could just buy the needles, i have the orange ones. and in doing the gauge clusted led conversion and going blue, i dont feel like the orange wil compliment it too nicely... i dunno. i have to do it anyways because i got two lights out on the dash.

There's a pretty good chance I'll have a set of white needles from my Explorer cluster mod/demolition.

I could be persuaded to part with these once I'm finished with my LED mods.

How much 'ya lookin' to spend on a set of needles?

im not for sure, i just saw a 2003 on craigslist that im going to check into
Ford Ranger parts maybe i can call and see if it has them. i could prolly get the whole gauge cluster to so if i mess this mod up id have a back up.

ohh and ive called all the junkyards around and they dont have any rangers, i think there getting p!ssed cause i call them so often.
