Dakota Digital has been raising the bar on gauge displays for the last few decades, and they have no intention of stopping! From vintage classics to modern classics, they continue to expand on there catalog for car lovers all over the world.
They’ve been doing this for so long, that they even update and replace offerings for certain vehicles as technology continues to improve and enthusiasts require more features. Just recently, they have announced their latest RTX kit, for 1971-74 Charger, Road Runner, GTX, and other B-body Mopar built for those model years.
Dakota Digital Announces RTX Gauge Cluster for 1971-1974 Mopar B-body
Third Generation Chargers shared many styling attributes with their older brother, retaining the Rallye style of multi-sized round gauges. The unique gauge size and placement make many other dash options challenging, both in construction and retaining the B-body OEM feel that is deeply held. The RTX-71D-CHG mounts immediately into the steel dash structure and is then overlaid by the OEM front gauge bezel. New LED backlighting is integrated within the OEM Headlight and Wiper switch, following the user-customized color options that the TFT family brings to the table.
The RTX series is the latest from Dakota Digital, focused on retaining that stock look without sacrificing the late-model features you love. Every effort has been put forth to incorporate OEM design elements regarding the layout, face styling and indicators. A casual glance may dismiss these as original equipment, but once you hit the switch and the LED backlighting comes on in your favorite color scheme, all doubts will be removed.
Starting from scratch, CNC machined housings are filled with electronics designed and built in-house, helping Dakota Digital once again raise the bar for aftermarket instrumentation. The high-definition TFT message center can be fully configured to display just about any piece of information needed. As you’ve come to expect from Dakota Digital, the RTX series utilizes a central control box to make installation and setup as easy as possible.
