Where can i get some new dashlights for my 97' ext cab. I looked the other day and it looks like there is 2 kinds. Looks to be there is light bulbs and leds. I want to put in some red ones so instead of having that greenish blue lighting behind my gauges i want to have red. Anyone know where i can get a kit or bulbs and leds that are red and will fit there? thx

I'm not sure how changing the color of the bulbs will work, as the green/blue comes from the gauge overlay. Changing the bulb color might not result in the effect you want.

I just today changed my gauge faces. Mine are now blue/red instead of green/blue.

They are made by Nu Image.
There are quite a few people selling them on ebay. I got the whole set up (gauges, ac panal, head light switch cover) for 129.00 shipped.

Here is a pic of them during the day. I will try to take a nightime pic tonight.

Yes you need to remove the needles. The one I bought didn't say that it came with a needle remover, but it did. (I would ask the seller before you bid on it if they include one.)

Installing the gauges was actually easier than I thought it would be. I was a little nervous about doing it, but it was simple.

I have the new image guage face myself. All their gaguage replacements come with the needle remover and it is very simple to do even for the mechanicaly inclined.

it looks to be moer of an orange, IMO.

Im taking it no one has or knows if anyone carries an all red gauge face, well not all red just when its lighted up?
