    great! so are you doing it yourself, or are you looking for someone to do it for you? see my sig if you want me to do it. i am in denver, so you would have to pay for shipping both ways, but i can do it same day i get it and have it right back to you the very next day.

    I haven't decided yet. I definitely do not want to mess anything up. Ive soldered things before just not anything in my truck. How difficult is it?

    if youve soldered stuff on a circuit board and are comfortable in doing so, then you can do it, if not then send it over to yosh2000 ;)

    if you have soldered smaller computer like stuff (the pads for the LEDs are about 1mm x 2mm) then its easy. if you have only soldered 12g wires w/ a 100w gun and have all kinds of cold solders on them, then it might be a little tougher than you are expecting!

    there are several how to's between here, toyotanation and xr-underground to get you started.

    if you need any help or want me to do it, just shoot me a pm and i'll do what i can to help you out.

    If you're looking for someone to do it for you, talk to emelianenkov. He's a local (to me) member who has done gauge swaps for lots of people. I don't know what he charges but I've seen the end result and it looks great! If you want to do it yourself, he might be able to give you some pointers. It only took him about 20 minutes to do a set of gauges.

    ^ carefull w/ that guy, i had to fix some problems a dude had after he sent that guy his gauge cluster not once, but twice... not trying to start any crap, just stating fact. I might even have some pics of my soldered joints versus that guys if you want to see them.
