How do I get a hold of some of the blue led lights? Will those work in the black clusters?

just posting a follow up here, the silver actually looks better than I thought, because the interior is grey, it looks very sharp!

I got my ford lettering from ^^^ today. Im going to keep the black cluster in my plow truck. Putting the white one thats coming in my lifted ranger.

Anyhow, I put the one of the script ford in the cluster tonight after pissing with the tach. Not sure if I should take the piece out and spray paint white then remove the vinyle or leave it. What do you all think...? If I remove the lettering it will more than likely be unusable.

what did you put the vinyl on? i think it looks good. i have the negative (the actual letters "ford") of that as well. if you were to paint and wanted the light to shine through, i could send them to you. i don't have any use for them.

Just a quick question from a newb since you guys are all gauge masters in here.
I have a 94 ranger 5 speed with no tach.
Would a newer cluster work in my truck? i want a tach with the factory look.
Thanks.....BTW....the backlit blue cluster looks amazing.

You can get leds off of ebay for very little money with the resistors attached.
i use them for led lighting on my rc trucks.

no, the newer cluster will not work in a 94 and older.
