RTX Instrument Gauge System | Ford Pickup (1956)


With a unique, arch-shaped speedometer, the ’56 F100 dash historically went two ways: keep the original instrumentation, or fill the dash and start drilling holes for antiquated round gauges. Now, you can have that timeless look of the large, sweeping speedometer while also having the latest in instrumentation technology. A full-color TFT message center keeps you in the know, as well as opens up the possibility for additional auxiliary readings, ensuring this bolt-in kit is the last gauge you install in your Effie!

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.
