This is 4499-SP. Is it available with a black face plate, My customer would like it to match his other gauges.

This gauge is not available in a black face plate. The Ultra Lite Series is a grey faceplate.

Asked by: BIG BILL
Thank you for your inquiry. This tachometer does not support a shift light. The instruction is used across many models, so shows the connector for those products.

Will the roll bar mount 48005 work for the 4099 in dash tach? If not, then what is the part number for tach 0-5-10k rpm pedestal/roll bar mounted?

Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, we do not have a roll bar mount for 5" in dash tachometers.

just curious - is the 4499 tach able to drive an LED shift light?

Asked by: brian111
Hi Brian. Thank you for the question. Since this is not a shift light tachometer, there is no driver to activate a shift light. You would have to run our RPM activated switch along with a light or a completely independent light like our 5343 Shift Light.
