    Where are people putting their wiring box for their Dakota Digital gauges? I found one example on here, just want some opinions before I drill screws. This car is earlier, I have a 1980 with the square bezel... I don't believe it should affect the fit their...

    good question- I have the same issue in an 80- I was thinking under the radio where the console meets there should be some space there- but I am not quite at that point yet.

    I installed mine on the vertical face of the heater box at the passenger toe location. I used industrial strength velcro so I could remove the box if needed and still be able to tuck it up and out of sight. So far so good.

    Yeah it works fine where it's at, plenty of room for the cluster to mount
