Has anyone installed their gauges in the dash? I'm installing water, oil pressure and volt meter and would really like to install in the dash

I’ve done it, fairly easy to do. Wiring the back lights is rather tedious. Be careful with the hole saw. They like to wander around and scratch the dash coating. Diesel Freaks had the engine adapters for oil pressure and water temp.

I have a greenly knockout set that will work perfect for this. May need to Dremel the hole a little larger but definitely do-able

I put my gauges in back in 2018. 3 right side of main gauge. Tape dash to avoid scratching. I used 2” gauges. Worked perfect. 2AE9B3F1-0438-4248-9555-8C8984A84F1A.jpeg

That looks great. There is so much real estate to work with, the possibilities of mounting locations is just about endless. Did you use the factory grommets in the firewall?

Yes. Plenty of room to push wires through.

Do you have any visability issues with the wheel?
