I think that could help, Also changing the bulbs to LEDS in your cluster would help too.

I don't have problem at night......I wonder if the tint on the back glass has anything to do with it......I guess the tint is stock???..........seems pretty dark to me??
I have never had this problem with any other vehicle???......I'll drive it a little more to see if I really need a change...

thanks

I got a clear one out of a 98 you can have for shipping. It's in good shape, only pulled because shift/ odometer leds went out. I'll post some pics.

Are you sure the brightness is turned up all the way? I've never had a problem ever reading mine.

Bert, after dark is fine.........I was driving the river road from salida in the afternoon a while back, and the lighting [sunlight] made the gauges impossible to read most of the time and you know that you kinda have to look at your speed when driving that road ;-).......

i blame the dark tint ........on the back and side glass....

that may be the ONLY time and road that i have trouble???? but we use that road pretty often in the sommertime.........that's why i was looking at the face change........

Gotcha! I have that problem now and then, but usually caused by dust on the glass.

Guess I should try cleaning it one of the days but then the rest of the interior would look even worse!
