Dakota Digital VHX-1050/1060: Universal 5 and 6 Gauge Round, Analog VHX Instruments



Dakota Digital universal round VHX Series analog gauge kits introduce a new look in a traditional layout. The circular gauge format has been a design staple for generations, allowing flexibility in nearly any type of vehicle–and this distinctive line offers vital information in a variety of configurations … from one single gauge, to a cluster of six! VHX dials provide accurate feedback on at least 20 automotive levels, speeds, and functions; and bringing the vintage dashboard displays into the 21st century are bright LCD message centers, backlit faces, and fully lit needles. These gauge kits are equally impressive behind the scenes, with solid-state sensors, precision stepper motors, and customizable data readouts. Choose the colors you prefer on the face and digits; everything will be encased in a chromed billet aluminum housing with polished bezel. Dakota Digital gauges have revolutionized the industry–just think what they’ll do for your driving experience!
