This Dakota Digital RetroTech gauge kit gives you the best of both worlds. The look of the original type gauges with all the modern functionality that Dakota Digital is know for.Looks like a stock cluster with just three gauges, but in fact there are six readings! The tach, oil pressure and voltage are made up of hidden LED bars, only visible when the key is on. A large TFT message center is front and center while the rest of the system looks straight out of 1957. Fits into your original cast housing; chrome rings available separately, as is the matching RLC-57C clock.
The RTX series is the latest from Dakota Digital, focused on retaining that stock look without sacrificing the late-model features you love. Every effort has been put forth to incorporate OEM design elements regarding the layout, face styling and indicators. A casual glance may dismiss these as original equipment, but once you hit the switch and the LED backlighting comes on in your favorite color scheme, all doubts will be removed.
Starting from scratch, CNC machined housings are filled with electronics designed and built in-house, helping Dakota Digital once again raises the bar for aftermarket instrumentation. The high-definition TFT message centers can be fully configured to display just about any piece of information needed, or just leave the vintage-looking tumbler odometer on the screen for a totally stock appearance.
Vehicle integration through a central control box has become a standard for Dakota Digital, and the advantages are substantial. This greatly simplifies installation; two power (constant and switched) and one ground connection get things up and running, while vehicle-harness sourced signals and sensor inputs run cleanly to their respective terminal. Supplied, solid state sending units with weather-tight harnesses ensure years of trouble-free operation. This control box allows for easier service, a clean-looking finished product, and an abundance of technology packed into a vintage dashboard.
