The new Dakota Digital RTX gauges have arrived! Here is my unboxing video and initial thoughts. I will post an installation video at a later date. Spoiler alert, I love them!

I have a set ordered as well. Do you plan on adapting a stock wiring harness, or are you using some sort of aftermarket wiring ?

I have a new reproduction dash harness from M&H that I will be using, but the gauges came with an independent harness that I'll use as well. We'll see how it goes.

Well I'll be following along, as I plan to do the same set-up. :drinkingbud:

Hoping to get it done within the next month. I have to order a Vintage Air system and install the under dash part before putting the dash back in.

Wow! I guess they're for a different class of owner than I. I'd stick a couple of Mackenzie Kings over the old gauges and then spend a couple of Bordens on S&W gauges.   :))
