Dakota Digital 1955 - 59 Chevy Pickup RTX Instruments - RTX-55C-PU-X

RTX-55C-PU-X Bezel White Lighting Day

Make ‘em do a double take! What looks like a stock take-out gauge cluster from a 1955-59 Chevy pickup is actually an all-new, fully electronic technological wonder! We snuck in a tachometer to match the small gauges up top and bumped the speedo to 120mph and finished it off with a single TFT message center surrounded by a mesh pattern behind the speedometer needle. Fits stock or reproduction chrome bezel, available separately (bezel is NOT included). Sorry, does not fit GMC.

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

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 centers can be fully configured to display just about any piece of information needed, or just leave the vintage-looking tumbler odometer on the screen for a totally stock appearance. 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. Please scroll through the listing below for a more in-depth look at the RTX series and lots more pics!

MTX-55C-PU-X Metric system (KM/H and degrees Celsius) is available as a custom option for no additional cost, but may take approximately 12-24 weeks to build. Some systems may take a little longer due to COVID-19 and high demand affecting production. 


Which extra 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 instrument systems, in many cases no additional parts will be required. However, you may wish to consider the following optional items, available for purchase separately in our store:


GSS-3000 - 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-3000 accommodates automatic transmissions with 2- 4 forward gears and enjoys a simple and straightforward installation.


DIM-1 - Light Dimming Knob

Although Dakota Digital instrument systems are programmable for both day and night intensity levels, the DIM-1 will allow rotary, or on-the-fly brightness adjustment added convenience.


SEN-06-1 - Fuel Level Sensor

Dakota Digital instrument systems are designed to utilize a stock or aftermarket fuel level sensor. If a universal or replacement sensor is desired, the SEN-06-1 is a great choice.


BIM-01-2  - OBD II/ Can Interface Module

The BIM-01-2 OBD-II (J1850/CAN) Interface connects directly to the ECM diagnostic port to extract engine and transmission data and supply it to the instrument system, making installation a breeze.

    Double take

    Posted by Nick S on 25th Mar 2023

    Once you install this, you'd be surprised how many people think it is OEM until you fire it up and all the lights work. Then it's a true double take and the questions start flowing. Hands down, the best present I have ever bought my dad!!
