I love my '07 Taco but I treasure my eyes alot more, so, following instruction from the sticky from CT on how to remove the gauge:
http://customtacos.com/tech/index.php?article=225

I began my obsession to have a better viewing when I'm driving:











































You see how hard it is to read characters in f'in amber?

There were 10 LED's total that I replaced. (should be 11 really).

Now I can Ride In Peace :smokin:

addition 3/1/07: somebody's come up with blue gauges here

I'M READY! PM ME :cool:


If you're gonna mail it in, pack it right and track it, cause I'm gonna use the same packaging to ship it back.

Damn, I'd pay for that to be done. I hate the amber color of the gagues. That's one of the gripes I have with this truck but was willing to live with it. I always wondered about the color of the gagues and if they could be changed somehow. Now I have my answer and will definatly keep track of this one.

:yikes: Out fuck'ng standing. One of the best mods I've seen so far. I always knew it can be done, but I don't have the time & patience to do it. Keep up the good work!!! :thumbsup: I'd love to see it in person. ;)

Holy crap! Someone estimated about 20 LEDs to change, so there's really only 10 =). So did you solder them or what? I want blue =) And you couldn't change the needles' color?

Congratulations, Jotaro! ...

We've known how it would have to be done for a long time, and now finally someone's dug into it and got it done.

Wow, this is a tempting mod for me to do. Do you happen to have any spec on the different color led that we could use?

Nice write up btw! :clap:

OK, I'm in.
But where did you get the LEDs? What size/type LEDS?
