Ok seriously though. Got the gauges wired!
I decided to do it a little differently this time. So i made this harness that goes down into the dash, but it goes to a connector, so its not hardwired into the truck:
That plug goes into the dash harness. key hot to power the gauges, ground, illumination, and then of course the two wires that go to the sending units. That harness is built into the dash so i dont have any pics of it. But!
and lit up! Paired with some LED bulbs for the dash, and they match perfectly, i love em
