RPM Gauge?

K! Weird question!

I have the base model of the 98 Frontier. In my display, on the left side I have the fuel gauge, center I have the speedometer, and on the right side I have the engine temp. NO RPM GAUGE! I wouldn't think think this was that weird if I had seen other models like mine with the same type of display setup, but after surfing through numerous videos and pictures online, I haven't found one like mine yet. All of them have RPM gauges on the right side, and their temp is a smaller gauge, sitting next to the fuel gauge on the left side.

SO. Let's say, hypothetically, that someone in my situation would like to find a way to see their RPMs. Let's say, hypothetically, someone likes to listen to their music really loud and isn't always able to hear the engine. I've driven enough that I know by the feel of the vehicle when its time to shift, but it would still be nice to have a gauge. Has anyone encountered this issue and found a way to set up a gauge somewhere inside of the vehicle for the RPMs? Thanks!

My truck has one, but the gauge cluster went out. I don't need a tach, but a speedometer is nice.
I was able to plug and play the 00 model into my 98. no joke. If you want my cluster to take the tach out i'll sell it cheap. shameless plug.

The only difference I could find in the membrane was, my truck had the -4 circuit, and the one I bought had a -5 circuit. I ran the traces out and they were identical.

And I make membrane switches for a living.
