Designed to fit the factory gauge positions in your classic 1956 F-100, this Dakota Digital VHX-56F-PU-K VHX Gauge System with a Black Alloy Style Face will bring the information center in your pick-up truck into the 21st century. This new VHX Gauge System fits directly into your stock instrument bezel without any modifications.

Features like the fully lit needles, backlit faces and highly visible LCD message centers are just a few of the benefits that set the VHX Series apart from yesterday’s traditional approach to instrumentation. Additional behind the scenes features include the micro-controlled precision stepper motors, solid state sensors for unparalleled accuracy and user-customizable display feedback. The VHX Series has completely revolutionized the instrumentation industry and will surely pack your original dash with good looks and features, attracting the eyes of every bystander to your classic F-100.

Back-lit lighting allows you to see what is truly important when you really need it at a quick glance. Each number, tick mark, annunciator, needle, indicator and digital message center is lit by a series of LEDs behind the gauge face.

Dakota Digital instruments feature push button technology. Mount the push-buttons supplied with your gauges in a convenient easy-to-access location. These buttons are used to calibrate your speedometer, set the cylinder count and the fuel level gauge. Once properly configured these same buttons are used to access the wealth of information located in the Digital Message Centers.
