Message:
For anyone thinking about buying this kit you will not be disappointed with your choice.The install was completed in about 21/2hrs and only minor problems was the instrumnet cluster.The only thing here is you have to be very careful with the needles.They are very weak it seems and could probably be brocken but other than that it takes a little time reinstalling the needles.Just make sure you have them in there proper place before you put everything back together because I speak from experience and this set me back 30min because one of the needles was not depressed far enough.After the install I fired those babies up and the glo is great.They have a swicth were you can choose green or blue plus adjust the brightness of the glo.All in all a great product from APC!!!!

I installed mine and probably rushed through it. I have
2 problems. Speedo is off and gear indicator is not
right. I'll prob replace the whole assembly back to
original.

All you do UFO is let your truck warm up about 10mins and then draw yourself a diagram from the battery readout to your temp. gauge and so on so this will let you set them pretty close from factory.This is the hardest part of the install it took me about ten tries to get the needles in there proper place.Specs if your thinking about taking the whole thing out take a look at it first.If your speedo is off just use that little tool and set it to factory,remember let you truck warm up for about 10mins,this is very important.What do you mean about your gear indicator?There is only one way the speedglo can go on there!!

UFO the speedo could be of a little but the chance of this is pretty slim.Hopefully you didn't put it back together yet and just make sure the speedo needle is all the way down plus make sure your speedglo gauges are properly placed.Another I forgot to mention on the speedo there is a little plastic peice used to hold the needle up and there is one on the other side passed the 120.Ok on mine I had to pop the second one out because there wasn't a hole to put it through.This allowed my speedglo gauges to lay properly in place.Sorry I didn't say something sooner!!!

No its okay..hopefully i will be able to go faster that 120 sooner or layer..i knew about the little piece of plastic... it is useless unless u shut off the car at 100+ mph then it will try to rewind itself to the 1 but go the wrong way..
