Re: gauge install help

All those expensive mods and no guages????

What exactly are you wanting to know? The gauges will light with 12v and a ground. Are you wanting to know where to find the dimmer, or 12v?

That's why they pay me the big bucks

Wish they were a sponsor here, certainly seem to have the best and most comprehensive install directions
