Published on 2013-10-16 Bring your fox body Mustang out of the stone age of mechanical gauges. Pick up a Dakota Digital Instrument cluster from LatemodelRestoration.com Not only will these fix your problematic mechanical gauges but it will also add some awesome performance monitoring such as 0-60 mph time and even quarter mile times. These digital gauge clusters are available for 79-89 Mustangs and are a direct replacement. They come with detailed instructions and all the needed hardware. Give your Foxbody Mustang a modern looking dash with the Dakota Digital instrument clusters!!
I installed the gauge cluster for my 1989 GT myself, and I've been using it for over three months now. The installation instructions are clear and easy to follow. You'll need the Ford electrical shop manual for your model year, or an equivalent manual to help you identify the proper wires that need to be cut and spliced. I found the best location for the control bock to be below the radio. I had to remove the stock radio and amplifier to fit the control box, but an aftermarket radio with a blank panel is a perfect place to put the two control buttons. My only complaint is that the fuel gauge will read zero when the tank is filled to near the top of the filler cap. It starts to read full once the fuel level sender breaks the top of the tank and starts to descend. This happens on my mustang at around 40 miles. Not a big deal. The information center can display a great deal of performance as well as some diagnostic information. Fit and finish is perfect. You can adjust the level of brightness for day and nighttime driving.
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!
