    Yeah... I was contemplating that with a stock 88 MGM dash. Definitely not worth the squeeze for me.

You'd have to fabricate a position sensor for the column or the trans. I think Dakota sells a bolt on one but you would have to fab a bracket for that one that would probably have to be mounted by using the trans pad bolts which would require some finagling to get around the pan lip. And that's just what I can remember off the top of my head. There may be newer/better position sensors to use with the display that would simplify life.
    Remember im swapping 05 under 84 and using 05 gauges. I can probably get the needle style to function but just looking at these. Would give a little more clearance if the box housing the needle could be removed. It will ultimately be an is the juice worth the squeeze scenario

    Cool! So about $300. Didn't get a chance to peruse the installation video so would need to see if it is worth the effort. Thanks for the photos/links!
