Custom Dash….

Does anyone know someone who makes a bolt-in replacement metal dash for an 87 YJ standard transmission?

I saw on e-bay but the folks have not returned my e-mails…

Thanks,
Buck

So I guess the passenger has to watch the vitals... I know I couldnt see them.

Looks like that center section is an option thank god.

Call call them. Tell them you are wanting the laser cut dash for a 87' - xx Wrangler.

They make them and custom cut the gauge holes to your specs. $150 I think. (Flat Dash like old CJ's)

I happend accross them wanting to do the same thing.

^^ very true! never noticed that

He would have to run CJ guages then, if your upgrading the dash might as well upgrade the guages.

Is it that you want a flat dash, or are you doing this for the aftermarket guages to fit... quadratechs new dash section for a YJ with autometers works excellent.

Edit: damn I cannot wait for my new steering wheel to come
