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!
here we go...
Almost done! just a few more hours of wiring and then heater/radio controls and whatnot...
only problems i ran into was the 2 bolts holding up the steering column, and now the ugly wiper motor. fixed the bolts. any suggestions on the wiper motor?

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.
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?
