Florida50 is way too expensive... i could cnc those at work for a $150 piece of billet aluminum or less

Anyways, as stated previously the stock gauges aren't very reliable, any aftermarket gauge would be an improvement over stock, there are several mounting options as well, pillar post, center vents, pass side dash, under the drivers side dash, etc.

Good Luck

if you were to buy all the gauges seperate, and cnc your own cluster, you would save 75 bucks. plus they wire it for, its clean and easy to install. I thought it wass worth the extra 75 bucks

i love my florida50 gauge cluster it was definitely worth the extra $75 for nice labeling and senders and all hardware and splices you need for the hook up

thats why you buy a set of gauges that looks decent from autometer. only cost like 250-350 in a set depending on the style. mill out some mild steel or aluminum, paint it up and wiring is simple, im sure you could save 75-200 dollars easy
