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

but as for the vitals on the passanger side...it is just the fabbed metal and put the speedo and tach on the drivers and temps and battery and oil pressure in the middle section.

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
