Let me know what you come up with for the defroster. I'm working on mine now but i do not want a dash pad. I was thinking of either swaping to a cj windshield frame or punch holes in the bottom and top of the yj frame for the defrost.
I am using the existing duct work and windshield frame for my defroster. I started a write up here if you want to take a look. I am cutting holes in the top and bottom of the botton potrion of the windshield frame. I fabricated some duct work on my new CJ dash that will butt up against the existing duct work and send it through the windshield frame. I moved the existing duct work to the backside of the frame. It allows for about 1/4 inch more space to work with.
The shelf on the backside of the dash is to hold the new ECU for the fuel injection. It will be painted to match the body of the jeep as seen in my avatar on the left there, so it shows through the dash. The dash will be painted black.
Oh and the girlfriend named the jeep, dont make fun of me.
i have a 1986 cj7,and i want a 3 /38" tach above radio gauges,but def. Duct is in the way.do i remove the whole upper duct assy,as in this picture,and install your pvc setup??.hope i can,i love the extra gauge.
