7th and 8th Gen Cluster LED Retrofit

As some of you may know, I've been offering LED retrofits for the 7th gen clusters for a little while. I am happy to announce I will now be offering the same service for 8th gens!

Basic retrofit service includes retrofitting high quality LEDs from SuperBrightLEDs.com in your choice of color.

Colors available:
Cool White
Warm White (stock blue-green)
Blue
Green
Yellow

Red


Note: The stock gauge cluster gets it's blue-green color from a film applied to the gauge faces. Some colors do not show as bright as others. Red and Yellow may appear dimmer than the standard incandescents, and the color may be affected by the blueish film. Other colors, such as Blue will not illuminate the red portions of the gauges, such as the "E" on the gas gauge or the redline on the tachometer.

***For 7th gens, if you would like for me to put in new stepper motors for the cluster as well, please add $10 per gauge to the retrofit price below!***

There are a few options for doing this:

1) Send me your cluster. I will retrofit the LEDs in the cluster, and ship it back out within one business day (when given prior notice). Price for this option is $60 plus return shipping

2) Purchase a cluster from eBay or the like with similar miles to yours, and have it shipped to me. I will retrofit the LEDs in the cluster and ship it to you within one week of receiving the cluster. Price for this option is also $60 plus return shipping. This option is best for those who drive their car daily and don't want to go without a gauge cluster for the time it takes to do the retrofit.

3) Purchase a used cluster from me. I will go to the junkyard and try to find a cluster with as close miles to yours as possible. I will retrofit the LEDs into this cluster, and ship it out to you. Price for this option is $110 plus shipping These clusters will be cheaper than an eBay cluster, but it may be difficult for me to find one with the correct miles for your car.

Shipping is to and from 20850 - Rockville, Maryland

Pictures of clusters I have done:

Awesome! Just to clarify for folks, do you offer faceplate replacement, too? IE the white cover on the last pic.

Yes, I will do faceplate replacements as well. HOWEVER! The gauge faces themselves sell for about $120 for the set.

I also want to add, I currently have a 7th gen 6 gauge cluster and an 8th gen base cluster in stock, ready to be retrofitted.

7th gen 6 gauge Dale Earnhardt Sr. #3 cluster w/ 137k miles

8th gen base cluster w/ just under 121k miles

I'll post pictures of both tomorrow, but they're both in like-new condition. I'll sell the 7th gen cluster as it is, if anybody wants an un-retrofitted cluster for $75 + shipping. The 8th gen cluster needs to be retrofitted, as a few bulbs are out.

Do you think mine would come out brighter if I went with cool blue? Is their an option for white?
The SS faceplate has a red film behind it, think it will turn pink? lol

The 8th gen SS cluster is a bit different from the rest, since the film is red instead of the greenish blue. Red LEDs will turn out the best. Warm white will make it look red. Cool white will make it look kinda pinkish. I'd recommend the red for the SS cluster.

I second the red for the SS cluster. The red was pretty faded on the non-SS cluster, really viable in high and low for temp and gas gauge. Glad to see someone doing these! Good luck Ryd! If someone would like to see how bright the red is with the non-SS vs SS just ask.

AFAIK, the clusters are not vin locked, so no. There are a few people on here who have swapped clusters in their 8th gens with no issues
