First off, i just want to say, that DAN IS THE MAN! if anyone is looking into a conversion like this, its great. you can keep almost all of your wiring, depending on the guages you run. DoubleD Fab is his work. Its great.
Here we have some before pics. I tried to paint it all black first, but still i longed for the plastic removal.
Then, i went looking for my gauges, and idiot lights. i went with these to keep wiring to a minimum, instead of going to all the CJ gauges. I decided on the Hot Rod Black II from autometer. they look sharp.
Then, the LED idiot lights. 2 greens for turn, a red for check engine, a blue for high beams, and a amber for 4wheeldrive. Any ideas on where i should put these? still undecided... as well with the kill switch and fog lights toggle...
Then, the wiring connectors, from caspers, which are water proof, and a few sets of waterproof splices.
Everything together (minus the steering column bezel, speedo and tach, and kill switch):
Then today.... this was waiting for me when i came home from school!
best part is being able to keep heater and lights control. LESS WIRING!
Its off to powder coat, then its demo time!
Also, anyone want to take the tuffy locking console off my hands? 60$ its great condition.
That thing looks sweet I'll be watching your build. I just did a full cj dash swap and you made a wise choice keeping yj heater controls. I used the autometer gauges for my oil presure and volts and they worked out well, there pretty much an idiot proof install and I assume you got ones that work with the yj sending units so that should make it even easier for you. I like those indicator lights you got to where did you get them? I had to add one for the check engine light since the cj cluster doesnt have a spot for it. I wish I could find one labeled check engine so there wont be any bs when I have to go for emissions next time.
Looks great, only half of my gauges work after my 4.0 swap so I am going mechanical gauges where I can and electric for the rest my dash is about to get the home job of the dash swap. Alum. scrap drilled for some gauges with a cut out for a stereo and a idiot light or two.
