Please note: This system is a pre-order and may take 6-10 weeks before it goes out, though it may go out sooner. You can still purchase it now and it will go out as soon as it is built. If you want an updated time frame, please contact us before you purchase. Domestic orders will get shipped directly to the customer from the manufacturer, whereas International and Canadian orders will get sent to our shop first, which will add approx 4 business days to the estimated time frame. Please let us know if you have any questions!
Styled after the original equipment found in 1970-78 Camaros, this kit fits a stock or reproduction instrument bezel (bezel is NOT included). Side by side with the stock cluster, you’ll be hard pressed to tell them apart, until the key is turned that is. A pair of TFT displays can be configured however you choose, and late model drivetrain integration is straightforward. 1970-72-style bezel available for purchase separately; kit also fits 1979-81 bezels but does not fit Firebird.
*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.
MTX-70C-CAM-X metric system (KM/H and degrees Celsius) is available as a custom option for no additional cost, but may take 8-12 weeks to build. If you want the metric version, just let us know when you make your purchase
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!

Both daytime and nighttime brightness can be easily controlled through the RTX setup menu, allowing you to choose your preferred lighting intensity level, toggled by the activation of the headlight switch. If on-the-fly rotary type control is desired, the DIM-1 (sold separately) is a common accessory to add this functionality.

Full LED backlighting provides a strikingly visual gauge package, with sharp contrast for ease of viewing both night and day. Full RBG backlighting allows you to create the specific color you want, with a unique daytime and nighttime theme if desired. Whether your goal is an OE look or something truly bold, the RTX Series lets you make the choice.

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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
