ok, so a little update.

the speedo and tach are on order. again. i had to call off the order twice now because first i paid for a 2.5 inch lift, then the money needed to go to an insurance deductible (im an idiot), then the transmission on my fathers truck went out so i helped in the paying for that, then my cluth took a dump on me.

its been painted with 2 part epoxy primer the shot with black, and ive started on the wiring. In 2 weeks she'll be in.... NO MATTER WHAT!

its a 2-part epoxy primer, and the black paint is a type that my father uses to paint the stripes on aircraft. his buddy had some extra black, so he shot it for me... doesnt really have a "name"

love the way it came out though...

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.
Do you mind me asking where you get the guages that will work with the stock sending units? Do you have to call and specifically ask for them or do you need the specs for each?
