    Anyone know where I can get a set of Metric guage faces(kilometers OUTSIDE, mph INSIDE)? Lots of aftermarket ones available but all in mph. Also, I have heard that the odometer can be re-programmed to read in km instead of mph. Is this true?

    look into seeing if the HILUX guages are the same size/style as the tacoma's if so I'm sure they are in KMh

    I priced them today at the local dealership. Close to $600 as they say you can't buy just the face, you have to buy the whole gauge cluster. I haven't had my dash apart yet to call BS on that one. I know in my old GM the faces just sat on the gauge and came off when you pulled the needle. Any one know a wrecking yard that specializes in late model Tacos?(In Canada?):canada::canada::canada:
