That's harder to do than you think. The gauges and idiot lights are part of one cluster to the left of the speedo. It pretty much all needs to come out for the new gauges to fit.

You could always use the wiring from the brake light to light up an LED or something.

I just figure if I lose my brakes, I'll figure it out.

thats true. i know its all one big part with all 4 in it. i was just thinking maybe cut the other 3 out with a drimmel, i really dont need the lights but there are only so many gauges to put in ya know.

The new gauges won't clear the printed circuit board behind the cluster. That's the only real problem with just taking a dremel to that cluster.

The only reason I have a vacuum gage is to fill that 4th hole. :D

3314 or 4324, depending on which steering column. I used 4324.

235/70/R15. Rubs ever so slightly at the front of the wheelwell. Never bothered me so I never did anything about it.

In retrospect I might have gone 225/70 or 235/60.
