1962- 84 Toyota FJ HDX Instruments


From Dakota Digital
1962- 84 Toyota FJ HDX Instruments

A drop-in instrument system designed for a stock gauge bezel from 1962-84 Toyota FJ models, this kit can be used with nearly any drivetrain. Custom 4,000rpm tachometer for diesel applications and/or metric units are available at no additional charge, while the single TFT message center allows the driver to stay informed at all times! You get a full six-gauge system, including  billet trim rings and TFT-display message centers, that’s ready to bolt into a stock or reproduction plastic housing (available separately). 

Available with your choice of black or silver alloy gauge-face styling, each HDX system allows the user to select independent illumination colors for the gauge readings and needles, as well as the message centers. Calibration and personal settings are manipulated with the built-in, capacitive-touch buttons, or the available Bluetooth app for Apple and Android devices. Each needle hub is black nickel plated spun-aluminum to match the buttons. All HDX instrument systems feature dead-faced indicators (turn signals, high beam, check engine, cruise control, parking brake, plus two user-definable), and a red, settable warning light for each gauge.  With our central control box, installation is greatly simplified with vehicle-harness sourced signals and supplied, solid state sending units connecting cleanly to their respective terminal. Click the tabs below for a more in-depth look at the HDX series!

*Bezel not included, shown for visual/presentation purposes.
System uses OEM or reproduction style bezel.

Dakota Digital is proud to introduce the BIM Expansion modules for Dakota Digital VFD and VHX instrument systems. The introduction of the Dakota Digital BIM modules allow you to add up to an additional 16 gauges, that's right we said SIXTEEN specialty gauges to your vehicle without the need to cut extra holes in the dash or installing pillar and pod mounts to your columns or under the dash. 

Please note that the BIM modules are only compatible with current VFD, VHX and RET control boxes which have a black plastic housing. Control boxes with metal housings are not compatible with the BIM modules.

Which extras items that are not included with this kit does Dakota Digital recommend that you consider?

Because Dakota Digital includes the required sensors for the Oil Pressure, Water Temperature and Speedometer with all its VHX and VFD instrument systems, in many cases no additional parts will be required. However, you may wish to consider the following optional items.

GSS-2000 - Universal Gear Position Sensor 

All Instrument packages contain a gear shift indicator display allowing the transmission gear position (Park, Reverse, etc.) to be shown within the message center. The GSS-2000 accommodates automatic transmissions with 2- 4 forward gears and enjoys a simple and straightforward installation.
