Yj gauges

Hello, i am new to this forum. I am trying to find out if it is possible to adapt a gauge cluster (fuel, oil, temp and voltage) of a 92-95 yj to a 88 yj model. I bought it by mistake and habent been able to find one that fits. The original gauge cluster broke from the screw points so it needs to be replced.

Thanks for any help!

The speedo is different and the wiring would need to be modified more then its worth. What is wrong with your gauges that you have right now?

I see 2 major problems here. First. The 1992 has a 4wd drive indicator light in that dash cluster, and your 88 does not. Your 88 has a clock and your YJ does not. You could wire it up to work without the 4wd light functioning since you have one located elsewhere in the dash, but you will need the right connection to make it work as I am pretty sure the 92 gauges will not plug in to the 88 wiring harness.

He's not talking about the speedo, just the gauge cluster towards the passenger side with fuel, voltage, clock, and temp.

Yes. Then it will work. You need the connector but the gauges will work.

How does the flexible wiring strip work with the different year gauge cluster? As stated above, no 4wd indicator in '88 and no clock in '92-94. Or is that the connector you were talking about?

The connector and just rewire to the new connector. The gauge sensors are the same so it is just a matter of it being wired in correctly.

there are different gauges, i.e. they need different sensors or compatible sensors....a sensor will create resistance, if the gauge is measuring a different 'scale' of resistance, then the gauge will be 'off'. i.e. it will read/report different values..

there is info on what sensors values we have in jeeps, but, Im not sure where it is.. maybe in the manual? of from the sensor mfg/supplier?

good luck
