    Finally, I recieved these in August for my b'day. My wife loves me. But I haven't had the time to get them put in until today. Installation was easy. I bought mine from Fire and Ice Motorsports. The needles didn't even have to be removed which cut down on install time considerably! I used a 3M trim adhesive to hold them down. The screws on the guages help too. Wiring was a snap thanks to this site (thanks guys). The bezel went on without a hitch, I used the tape they supply. The hardest part was lining everything up. The whole thing was two hours to install.

    No they're the indiglow guages. The whole backdrop lights up not just the numbers. I promise I'll post pics tomorrow.

    Indiglo Gauges

    Anybody have any experience with or opinion about the white background indiglo gauges (the one's where the numbers, etc. light up at night, not the whole panel)?

    They are often available on e Bay. Here is a current listing .... http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/e...&item=7948884209&rd=1&sspagename=STRK:MEWA:IT

    Its a simple matter of removing your instrument cluster and replacing with the new white face one; plug and play simple.

    Good luck ....

    anyone find out about this...i've read on some ebay autions that a chrome bezel will fit explorers form 95-02 wouldn't that gauges also be a fit for 95-02.
    but they seem to seporate the gauges in two different catagories 95-97 and 98-02. because the 98-02 white gauges seem to be cheaper than the 95-97 ones

    these are the prices

    95-97 28.99 + shipping
    98-02 17.99 + shipping

    what's the deal, anyone know?

    Do these Sport Trac clusters fit a 2000 Explorer and does the numbers and characters light up just like the black ones? Or does the white light up too? Also, what about the odometer? Is there a way to change it out so that the original milage is displayed on the dash?
