    I'm new to Tundra's 2017 SR5 CM and I have trouble seeing the speedometer during the daylight. Especially with sunglasses. Maybe just a old guy problem. Has anyone changes the background color?

    Welcome!

    I also have a 2017 SR5 and the numbers on my gage's are white.

    Sometimes for better visibility during the day I will turn on parking lights or headlights and turn the brightness up all the way by turning the trip meter button below the speedometer all the way to the right.

    Here is a picture of my gage cluster at night:

    Thanks but what I want is the background black to be white with a contrasting color for the numbers. I have seen it on other cars and it looks good.

    Too bad they don't have 2014+ 3rd Gen tundra. But anybody running 2007-13 check out this. Had a buddy do this to his 2011 GMC 3/4 Denali with the stainless which looked pretty sweet.
