hey xstar, you'll find that they look great once your done. I had to shave "notches" in the stock pod where the gauge face brakets are. it came out a tight fit so I didn't have to bolt the brackets to the stock metal "shelf". Just remember you won't get the dimming feature with any "electronic" gauges" The light circuit is not separate. Use that lone plug that is taped to the radio harness for the diming if you got a boost gauge. Then tap off the acc power from the clock. I ran a grd wire to the radio bracket. it took only 4 days once it shipped to get to me. And your right, it's almost like Micheal is sitting at his computer waiting for e-mail.
