RTX Instrument Gauge System | Ford Pickup (1953-55)


What can you say about an instrument system that fits the original dashboard, includes a chrome plated billet aluminum bezel, new lens, and is packed with modern technology? We kept the original look and style of the 1953-55 Ford F100 pickup instrument cluster, but added a pile of modern features such as a large, full-color TFT message center and precision needle movements!


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.
