We got tired of having no tachometer and a broken gas gauge, so we installed this SR5 style gauge cluster we bought for $5 This was a great site if you're looking to do this: http://www.humboldt.edu/~pke1/Truck/
It wasn't as hard as I thought; I didn't know what to expect with the odometer, but it turned out the odometer wheel from the old tachometer-less cluster fit in perfectly, even though the old one had no trip odometer. Running the wire for the tach wasn't as bad as I thought either, only thing though is our truck appears to be the only one on the net with no tach plug coming off the coil. So I just hooked it to the negative side of the coil like an aftermarket tach says to do. The oil pressure sender was about $27USD, but had to be ordered so I drove with the sender wire disconnected until it arrived, and that was a breeze to install. The cluster we bought had a cracked lens, so I had to coax the one off our original cluster with a hair dryer, then drill a hole for the trip odo reset. That was the only really hard part.
