The dash vents alone will make it all worth while sa the temp continues to drop.
I had considered several other options before swapping dashes... putting the TJ cluster where the YJ guages were. Also considered cutting the dash pad above the steering wheel and fabbing a fiberglass surround for the TJ cluster.
Neither of which would have worked as well as I wanted.
I actually had to relocate the YJ wiper motor to the passenger side and reverse and cut one of the wiper linkage rods. The TJ cluster was way too thick to fit with the wiper motor in its stock location.
At the same time, I found a great deal on a brand new heater assembly from a TJ. Swapped that too.
So I should have plenty of heat and the dash bents, cluster, etc.
I know that some really dig the metal CJ style dashes...but to each his own.
Wanna buy a YJ dash?
