Default Re: Is replacing the gauge cluster with whiteface worth it ???

I think it depends on personal preferrence. I personally dont like it because of the light colored green. I think the green is a cool color but for me I dont think it fits right. I love the look of the darker colored ones especially because I have black and silver interior. Also I was into f150's before I got my ranger and the gauges that come stock in the newer rangers are just like the FX4 type set up for the newer f150's, and you can only get that cluster setup in the FX4 F150's. so because of this I love my cluster and will never change it for the white cluster one but thats just me, like i said different strokes for different folks.

i like the white face explorer gauges after they have been modded. i hated the light green on mine, but after doing the leds and color change, i love it. i did mine in blue, and have another one here waiting to be done in red. but, i kinda wish now i would have looked for a silver one, cause it would go with everything else better. may look for one and reuse my gauge housing and just put the silver faces on.

Go to eBay and type in the following item numbers....

220548497341
200416320592
330385611555
230437331516
350342457308
190384780523

They are all 2003 XLT silver face gauges. You're crazy if you pay more than $100 for an ENTIRE cluster....not just those crappy ass overlays. Then you can get a stock 01-05 Explorer HVAC panel in the same silver, or platinum as ford calls it.
