Question Illuminated guage, climate controls.

What year ranger/explorer came with blue (any other color than green) accented illuminated gauge and climate control clusters?

Or how is an easy yet cost effective way to change the coloring?

I have determined that most mechanical / electrical challanges are directly connected to the nut that connects the steering wheel to the drivers seat.

The thing with mine is there isn't anyone who offers glow gauges without tach. I have an auto W/O tach. If anyone knows where to find one I would most definately buy it TODAY!

overlays = trash (I would know too...having one in my old ranger, and two in my current ranger....overlays = FTL)

modded stock upgrade clusters w/ led's = FTW









hot spots are not as bad as the pic makes them out to me. it's the nature of taking pics of hid's and led's. it's really pretty darn uniform in person.

A cluster with a tach is a direct swap and will work. Just get a cluster with one as well as the backing you want.

95-97 explorers had blue illumination. BUT...back face and alot of the idiot lights may not work poperly in your truck.

Otherwise, Justin's right, no white face w/ blue illumination. You can always do overlays, but overlays are gay and look ricer(imo).
