best after market speedo gage cluster

What is the best speedometer gage cluster? I see Crown and Omix make them and price varies.

Neither. Find a good used one you'll be much happier in the end.

Well, this one is pretty sweet!

I would rather have a tool I don't need, than need a tool I don't have.

This is what I ended up with for my Willys. My son has a CnC machine and made the bezel out of 1/2" billet aluminum. I used all VDO gauges.

Both are pure Junk. I can't believe that the reputable dealers ever sale them. I bought one...during the installation the rivets were literally falling out. Thinking I need to rebuild my original with new temp and fuel gauges.

Gage clusters

These are some very nice options, but I really want to keep things original. I'm nervous about buying an original unit, I don't want to buy the same set of problems I already have.

What are your current problems? I've picked up two used speedos for about $50 each with working fuel and temp gauges. Take the bezel/glass off, clean, paint needles orange, reassemble. Only way to go. ALL of the aftermarket OEM look alikes are crap. I tried them, and chunked them. They look like crap and don't work. OEM is the only way to go.
