88yj guages

Where can I get cheap factory replacement gauges? Or would it be better/cheaper to get after market? My tac and speedo work ok but
My trip meter button has fallen out of the gauge. You can still reset the trip meter you just have to stick it in the hole the rift wAy. At this point I need my trip meter cause the gas gauge does not work along w/ the oil pressure, the temp gauge is intermediate. But the clock still works. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!

For factory check ebay, Craigslist, junkyards and the classified on here. It's better to go with aftermarket gauges but they will not be cheaper. Have you tried cleaning the contacts on the back of your gauges?

I had to replace my gauges on my 91.. I went with the gauge pad from quadratec....about 40.00 then bought all autometer gauges for it... Not cheap at all but an awesome replacement!! I had no luck finding factory replacement gauges that either matched my dash color, or all worked. Good luck!

When my volt meter went out in my YJ, I called up the dealer and they wanted $150 JUST FOR THE GAUGE!! I then decided to go with Autometer gauges which go for around $50 a piece. I also wanted to get rid of the plastic dash, so I did. I have enclosed my new dash. It isn't finished, but it is close.

Autometer gauges are cheaper and last longer. They are also much more easier to replace than the OEM units BUT if time is a problem and you want to keep your factory plastic dash... "justplayinround" advice and try that route or eBay. It will be the fastest way to get you up and going.

Take care,

I was attempting to install LED's on my Dash, I need new gauges, they look ****ty...
I like the center gauge cluster w/autometer gauges on Quad website.
Are the Autometer gauges plug and play? Just remove OEM's and Install new?
I have an 89

Which one?

0 Ω empty / 90 Ω full (Electrical)
240 Ω empty / 33 Ω full (Electrical)
73 Ω empty / 8-12 Ω full (Mechanical)

Fuel Gauge has three choices

I'm curious about this as well. My dash is beat to crap and most of my gauges dance while driving down the road. Any updates?

Everything I have seen aside from the speedometer shows that it is just a quick plug-n-play setup. The manual on quadratec has the same thing. Here's the link:

Most likely its just the plastic copper pathway dealie that ties the gauges together and provides input. These a notoriuos for failing, If you clean up the contact area on everything you might have some success. If not you can get a better aftermarket one on eBay for about $80. If you have simple wiring skills you can hardwire the gauges to the dash harness connector. It solved all my issues but I fried my volt meter by accident. I have a few pics if your feeling froggy and want to try.

Or you could go with 1SAS and get ya some new ones! Awesome set up!
