Auto Meter gauges in factory bezel?

Is it possible or has anyone upgraded their gauges to Auto Meters and kept the factory gauge pod?

It is possible. There was a guy on eBay selling a panel that would allow you to use after market gauges behind the stock plastics. I bought one of these but later sold it to another member here. I ended up using the gauge cluster from AutoMeter instead.

I replaced the clock with a transmission temp, center position.

The PO of my jeep cut some wood trim pieces and glued them to the bezels. Then cut holes where the gauges went and put them through like that.

I do now recommended this method though. lol

This is exectly what I need then. My Jeep has all new dash palstics in it but I would like to change to Auto Meters and still keep all the factory dash.

Ive done some browsing on eBay for that piece but im coming up empty, also im told a company named drivetrain unlimited sells a panel that holds the gauges in the factory dash however I cant seem to find them. Does anyone have a lead where to source one?

Ditch the plastic for some metal.

Here's a pic of the one off eBay....



It would seem that it would be easy enough to build one if you've got the ability. That panel just screws to the main dash then the plastic goes over it.

I have the one from Drivetrain Unlimited, it worked great. There is a pic in my gallery I think. They are in St George, Utah. I'll try to find. The number as they didn't have a web site.
