Nice LED Dash Lighting

I just thought I would share this with everyone since I had very little information to go off of when I was looking for information on this. You will need to order seven 194 bulbs(5 for the gauge cluster, 2 for the climate control) for an OBS truck. Then just simply swap them out. They match my Autometer Cobalts perfect and there are no dim/bright spots.

Here is the link to the LEDs: http://www.ddmtuning.com/Products/19...4-5-x-5050-LED

You can also see them in my YouTube video:

Cool how the layout of the dash magically changes at about 0:17....

Curious - what are you reading with the SGII? What XGauges are you using?

How can it read ECT, when the PCM doesn't have a sensor for it?

So did you use the XGauges for ICP and IPR from their web site?

I thought it did have an ECT sensor. Either way, I am just going off of memory, I took the ScanGauge out and I haven't driven the truck in a few months. I know it is ECT or EOT.

Edit: Just checked, it was EOT. My bad

Yep, they dim down. It actually works out quite nicely because the LEDs are brighter than stock so they match the brightness of the gauges and dim equally. I am not quite sure what you mean by OEM but they definitely do not look cheap.
