    Details

    This 21st-century wonder has the look of a stock 1955-56 Chevy cluster but offers a full-color TFT message center and LED backlighting (user-adjustable colors). The casual observer will think this is vintage stuff, right down to the mesh pattern behind the speedometer needle – until you hit the key! Use a stock or reproduction bezel; available separately. Add RLC-55C clock to finish off the passenger side.

    The RTX series is the latest from Dakota Digital, focused on retaining that stock look without sacrificing the late-model features you love. Every effort has been put forth to incorporate OEM design elements regarding the layout, face styling, and indicators. A casual glance may dismiss these as original equipment, but once you hit the switch and the LED backlighting comes on in your favorite color scheme, all doubts will be removed.

    Starting from scratch, CNC machined housings are filled with electronics designed and built in-house, helping Dakota Digital once again raise the bar for aftermarket instrumentation. The high-definition TFT message centers can be fully configured to display just about any piece of information needed. As you’ve come to expect from Dakota Digital, the RTX series utilizes a central control box to make installation and setup as easy as possible.

    *Bezel not included, shown for visual/presentation purposes.

    System uses OEM or reproduction style bezel.

    * Instrument system eliminates the stock automatic gear shift indicator immediately above steering column. To display gear position, add GSS-2000 Gear Shift Sensor (sold separately)

    Features

    Lighting Technology

    Colors

    • Over 30 user-selectable color options allow you to independently change the needle color, sweep color and digital TFT display color.

    Brightness

    • Both daytime and nighttime brightness can be easily controlled through the HDX setup menu, allowing you to choose your preferred lighting intensity level, toggled by the activation of the headlight switch. If on-the-fly rotary type control is desired, the DIM-1 is a common accessory to add this functionality.

    Themes

    • With 12 factory preset color themes, you can quickly create a beautiful looking system. Or, for the ultimate in customization, choose all of the color zones yourself.

    Technology

    • Full LED backlighting provides a strikingly visual gauge package, with sharp contrast for ease of viewing both night and day. Full RBG backlighting allows you to create the specific color you want, with a unique daytime and nighttime theme if desired. Whether your goal is an OE look or something truly bold, the HDX Series lets you make that choice.
