Dakota Digital has been offering drivers the option to update their underwhelming dash center for decades. Their newest addition to the line is a series of options with their six-gauge, direct bolt-in replacement instrument panel for 1995-98 GM pickups and 1995-2000 SUV and HD models.

This system allows users to update the look of their original dash, and increases compatibility with the powertrain. It replaces the entire factory instrument cluster and the lens assembly. Learn more in the official release below.

Official Release:

Dakota Digital Releases Instruments for 1995-2000 GM Trucks and SUVs

A six-gauge, direct bolt-in replacement for 1995-98 GM pickups and ’95-00 SUV and HD models, complete with dedicated solid state sending units. This kit requires hardwiring into the stock harness; it is not a direct plug-in. Update the look of your OBS dash while adding compatibility to whatever engine and transmission you are running.

System replaces the entire factory instrument cluster and lens assembly, fully remade with a billet aluminum housing and optical grade polycarbonate lenses.
