OEM tach install on a late model Jimmy/Blazer

Hey All: I want to add one of the OEM looking tachs that LMC, Brothers, ect offer but they all stop at 1987 and say its not possible to use that style tach on late model K5's because of the HEI Distributor.Is there a way around this that anyone knows of? Any advice is much appreciated!!!

Get out and drive the truck this summer and have some fun!
It sucks not being able to hear!

LWB trucks rule, if you don't think so measure your SWB!
After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.
