Made in Virginia
VIP Golf Cars makes some of the best golf cart accessories around, and they're located just up the road from us in Elkton, Virginia. So it only makes sense that we'd eventually get together and create dash kits that can please any audiophile. We worked with VIP's engineering team to create kits that let you install the stereo gear you want in your golf cart.
The E-Z-GO TXT kit is styled to match your cart and designed to replace the stock dash with minimal fuss. You can install it in an hour or so using basic handtools, in fact. With three cupholders for your beverages, a storage tray, a side pocket, and a locking underdash glove box for valuables, you'll enjoy improved functionality along with outstanding sound. You'll also get great looks, whether you choose the Carbon Fiber, Greywood, or Black Paintable finish.
The steering shaft, ignition key, and a USB/AUX port like the Rockford Fosgate PAUX, are pre-cut, but if you need to add switches for additional gear (extra lighting, battery meters, etc.), you'll find space for additional cut-outs.
Installation note: On 2014-up carts, the ignition switch moved from the right to the left side of the dash. The kit's ignition wire is long enough to work with this design change.
Note: You can stash your phone or other device in the storage tray, of course, but if you're on uneven terrain, a more secure solution might be a good idea. Check out our collection of phone mounts to find the one that's best for your cart.

More details on the VIP Dash Kit for Gauge-style Radios
E-Z-GO TXT Dash: This custom dash from V.I.P. is designed to specifically fit 1997-up E-Z-GO TXT golf carts without modification (2014-up models require modification). It features pre-cut openings for a gauge-style marine digital media receiver and two 6.5" marine speakers, as well as your golf cart's steering column and ignition switch. It also offers 3 cup-holders, a tray holder, a side pocket, and a locking storage compartment.
Note: Gauge-style marine digital media receiver & 6.5" marine speakers are not included and all sold separately.
Modification Note for 2014-up Models: On 2014-up models, the factory ignition switch is on the left side of the dash (instead of the right side on previous years). There is enough slack in the ignition wire to move it to the right side. If you wanted, you could also drill a new hole on the left side to keep it in the factory location, but that would require extra modification and cutting, plus there would be an empty hole on the right side.
Gauge-Style Receiver Opening: The V.I.P. E-Z-GO TXT Dash features a round opening to mount a gauge-style marine digital media receiver. The gauge-style opening measures 3.0" in diameter and will accommodate a receiver with up to 4.75" of depth. The receiver's outer trim-ring should not measure more than 4.055" in diameter. It will fit most gauge-style marine digital media receivers.
Note: Check out our selection of marine digital receivers here.
Two 6.5" Speaker Openings: The V.I.P. E-Z-GO TXT Dash features two round openings that will fit many 6.5" marine speakers. The two round speaker cut-outs measure 5.420" in diameter and will accommodate a speaker depth up to 4.125". The speakers frame & grille diameter should not exceed 7.323".
Note: Check out our selection of 6.5" marine speakers here.
Other Cut-outs: There is also a cut-out for the steering wheel shaft and ignition key. The ignition key cutout diameter is 0.75". In addition, there is space to make your own custom cut-outs for light switches, meters, gauges, etc.
More Features: The V.I.P. E-Z-GO TXT Dash is equipped with three cup holders for your drinks, a tray for your smartphone, a side pocket for your sunglasses, and a locking storage compartment for your valuables. The floorboard of the golf cart creates the bottom of the storage compartment.
