Exclamation Get ur gauges done with LEDs check out!!!!

Ok guys I'm from a chevy forum yes I said chevy and my buddy does led gauges. They are not plug and play LEDs he takes the cluster apart and individually solders each light out and solders in an led. He can do all colors. Here's A pic of my gauges. I have white gauges and blue warning lights.

He's works out of California so u will have to ship Your cluster to him with a return sticker for him to do the LEDs and specify what colors you want done.

He said the first person to get there cluster to him will get it done for free.
The charge for the LEDs gauges will be $100. Not including you have to ship your cluster. Each cluster takes about 1.5-2hours to do.

His LEDs are way brighter and the different colors really add a custom look. Pm me for the shipping address

I've been doing this for quite some time. I use individual LEDs also. I charge alot more though.

You DO need a cluster to drive on all of the fords I've modded. I know for a fact the 2004+ rangers have the SJB and ECU married with software to the specific cluster that came with the truck. You might want to do some research before advertising like this. Also the older F150's won't start without a cluster. I tried to on a lightning.

Hard to borrow a cluster without the dealer software to marry it to the SJB and ECU. My time is just worth more than 100$ for this kind of work.

On a Ranger cluster he'd have to sand off the color. It's not as simple as just putting in colored LEDs.

On 2004+ it is not as easy as the older style either.The needles come of different.

Is he also gonna guarantee the needles will be accurate once he reassembles them?

lextech.org has been doing gauges ten years and won't do ranger clusters due to the design inside.

http://lextech.org/gallery/index.php

So whatever the guy charges above $100 is surely worth it. I was going to refer a few people to the new guy to see what he can do but after you came on the forum and insulted an actual ranger member, which you are not, just to peddle your buddy's lights ..... I think I'll just send him their way instead.
