Whats on your dash?

So the other day when I got stuck out in the sticks and had nothing better to do but think, I thought, "Geez my dash looks busy as all hell!" So im curious, What do you guys have on yours?

-XM radio
-CB radio
-CB mike mount
-Phone Mount
-2 extra power jacks
-external ambient air thermometer
-fog light switch
-remote start kill
-white gauges
-97+ center console

I'm sure I'm missing something here... Anyway heres my picture:

Wana dust mine while ur at it?? I think i haven't washed my jeep inside or out in.... 5 months? Just the normal removal of this and that but no cleaning. Heck i live in Colorado i wash it and wake up after we had some strong winds and it looks like its been parked for a year, covered in dust.

i HATE my guage cluster :/ but i cant change it or i loose the mileage i have (321,000) im kinda proud of that lol. i hate not having the battery voltage, engine temp etc. but what can ya do. its what i get when my stepmom buys a vehicle and gives it to me 11 years later...she just went and got a new jk and i disapprove. you think she would be smart enough to take the one person in the family that knows more about jeeps than all of them combined...

There's probably a way to move the odometer to another cluster

On mine I have parking pass for apt complex, phone (when in jeep). The cb rides on the seat.

i think i would have to go to the dealership and have them set it up. its the little electronic one so im not sure. i had heard you can just swap clusters cause the odometer reading is stored in the ecu so i hooked up another ecu to test it out and it still read i had 300,000+ miles so that fact is not true. its stored in the cluster.

The ECU does store mileage, separate from the cluster IIRC. The part that holds the mileage should be able to be switched. I think someone on here did it.
