As for off-roading like that, I wouldn't worry about it unless you are for some reason slipping the hell out of it.
And if you are, would you prefer limp mode or your pressure plate coming apart?

I think the font they are using is the same type as the old Route 66 font which can kind of look crooked...

While I can see the similarity no other 6 in the whole of the displays use that "style" 6 add that to it being an incredibly useless feature ( that I want gone/never wanted) and on that only makes the cluster more busy....

I think of myself as pretty anal (and my recent thread probably confirms this), but never noticed the 6 being slightly different or maybe never cared enough to look.

Or you haven’t seen it because you‘ve never made it up to that useless gear
6th is only useless if you have 3.45 gears. He has a Rubicon and most likely uses 6th all the time like I do. Being 700 ft. above sea level on the flattest terrain you will ever see helps...

Yep, anytime I’m on the interstate above 65-70. I’m in 6th with the cruise set… The only gear I find useless is reverse, it’s geared way to damn high in my opinion.

While it might seem to be only a minor issue it brings up the question of.... If they can't get a simple font or alignment of a number correct then why should I expect them to get a major issue such as the clutch correct?​
They can’t paint for :lipssealed: and makes rookie mistakes with aluminum. So if the font is incorrect, doesn’t surprise me.

As a software developer who often scratches his head over UX (user experience) design decisions, I can assure you it’s not a mistake. You may not like the way it looks, but the team responsible does.
