    Yes,.. the X-27 is the upgraded, more reliable stepper motor.

    looks really good my only complaint would be, Is it too bright?? I like the white and blue for sure, and I really like how you can see where the "other" indicator lights (CEL, Airbag, TC, 4x4) without the lights being on!

    (which may not be valid since I am not there to see it in person and gauging from a picture has to be difficult)

    yea,..Its kinda difficult to go by the photos,.. camera tends to pick up alot more of the blue led's,.. but there is always the spin wheel dimmer to reduce it if it is too bright.
    With mine I didnt use led's, just the stock bulbs, and white face with blue filter. (see pic below)

    So I am in the process of doing the cluster and the 4x4 switch , and hvac cluster. Is there away to blackout the existing led that work on the HVAC and 4x4 bulb. I don't want to de-solder them just in case i want to undo the led strip upgrade. Any Suggestions?

    The only thing I can think of is to run a separate power supply,.. but that would mean tapping the correct wire,[email protected] would know better.

    I was going to run separate power since i ended up going the RGB led route, but that is why i want to black out the light just in case my idea turns into a bad one lol.

    I can't think of anything that would successfully cover or blackout the stock bulbs without unsoldering them. If it were me, I would just unsolder them.

    Not a bad idea I'm just worried about the heat. My other idea is since I'm just running a separate power supply just turn them off from the switch

    Also, I noticed that the 4x4 switch has that blue tint just like the stock cluster face overlay. ScottyBoy when you upgrade those to leds do you remove the blue tint or do you leave it as is.
