I know that  I am bringing up an older thread, but I just got off the phone with Dakota Digital, and they are coming out with a new set of gauges for our cars. They released a set last year in HDX series, which I was calling to see what it would cost to have them custom made to look more original. They said that the cost is $75 for the upgrade, but that they also had another option in the works. It will come as part of their Retro-Tech series. It will appear like stock gauges when not turned on, but will light up the digital portions when the car is running. I looked over some the other sets that they have out now, and they look great. He said 6 to 8 months (maybe longer) and cost will be $1,495 like the HDX series.

Guess better late than never, I personally talked to them at SEMA 2 years ago about this issue as a friend of mine (and fellow member here) had them do a custom set for him to look more like the originals. I told them that Mopar guys, especially E body guys would prefer the factory look. They were complete uninterested and said they had what they had. that said, my buddy loves his.
Current Mopar
70 Challenger RT 440-6 EFI, 73 Cuda 416-6 EFI
05 Hemi Durango, 01 Ram 4x4, 14 Ram 2500 4X4, 10 PCP Challenger 6 spd RT, 01 Viper GTS ACR, 52 B3B w/330 Desoto Hemi, 70 Hemi RR (under const)
Past Mopars
9 x Challengers. AAR Cuda, 4 RR, 2 GTX, 4 Chargers, etc... (too many to list)

As much as I would like to say they listened to us Mopar owners, I believe that they are actually listening to the classic car community as a whole. The fact that they are already making this series for other cars points to a hole that their current line up was missing. They probably had enough request for custom gauges that looked more original across the board, that they figured that there was a real need/want for that kind of product. I was told that the B body gauge set will come before the E body, and E is slated for the last quarter.

They are nice but the clock is weak and they should have the colors for the tach (red line)
