You're thinking LED character displays. This is a sunlight readable, low temp LCD. Has a diff-lock indicator, which is impossible to find on other digital dashes. The only downside is a 10k tach, so I run the tach signal straight (triples the RPMs). It's probably the only thing on my truck that doesn't give me problems!

I think somebody else likened the shape to a Gameboy, which I'm totally ok with.

The only other digital dash that has an integrated diff lock display is the Dakota Digital, which really looks like something David Hasselhoff himself would have endorsed

I have a massive legal problem with this,that being when I drive my Deafener my speedo needle,in true Land Rover fashion,fluctuates wildly from 30 up to 50 or 60kph.

If I'm stopped for speeding I can honestly tell the Officer "I'm sorry,I had no idea what speed I was going Officer"

With this gadget I can tell the truth but get caught at the same time

Any problem with the VDO speedo, calibration, reading mpg etc? I did all new gages and the speedo goes to 40 mpg, then bounces around and in 5th gear drops to zero?

Removed this plastic shard from the bottom of my dizzy which was preventing the advance weights from working properly.

Santa came a little early this year. Installed Kc led headlights. Very bright, my bumper lights are pretty much unnecessary now.

Is the top half and bottom half lit when it's on low-beam?

The top half is on for low beam and both top and bottom for high.

replaced a-frame ball joint and bushings ... can't believe how straightforward this is process is with the correct tools ... tragically I didn't have a big enough press so bushing and seized bolts removed by hand!

Don't try this at home kids ...

I you've ever looked at a Td5 dash, you'll know why this is such a big deal. It's what I have done to my Defender today.... adding a tach, and the proper Td5 tach has been on my mind since I got the truck.

Mounted my hi lift jack lower on the front bumper. It was on the top of the brush bar always in the way when i needed to get to the engine. Now its more out of the way but still along for the ride.

Smart. I saw a guy who had his mounted on top catch a tree limb once. Tweaked his ARB and bent the fastener.
