Hey guys I'm new to the 1st Gen world, post up some pictures of how your gauges are mounted. Also how do you remove the center panel in the dash?

Do you just want a pic of the dash from the outside or do you need one of what's behind the panel cause I dont have one with the panel off.

I'm thinking of putting two or three gages in the center panel. So pictures showing gauges mounted and a little information on how to disassemble it would be great.
Thanks,

This isn't my truck since it's still stock but I found this in a search and thought it looked pretty clean. I looked for a DIY to go along with it but didn't see one.




Redtruck-VA, youkmc and bozeblake like this.

That I don't know. It kinda looks like he just cut it out.

This is what mine looks like. The rectangle on the left is for the 4WD indicator light, cubby hole on the right and radio underneath.

I guess I'll have to pull the front and then make the insert plate(s). I'll probably remove the radio while I'm at it. Maybe have a spare dash face to work with and then just swap.

Yes, I'm thinking tach, boost, fuel pressure, egt. I specifically want a 0-3500 3-3/4" tach. I want to put it on the steering column. I've found a couple that use a flywheel pickup, but don't know if the harmonic balancer pickup will be a good substitute or is there a mounting arrangement that can be used with the flywheel pickup.. I think our flywheel(flex plate) is 152 teeth.
