I took a better picture of my woodgrain that helps show its true beauty but the main point of me posting this is to give you guys a glimpse of the white face gauges I installed since before:

You know, for a while I've thought about taking mine out so I can put in a sunroof. If there's a way I can remove it without screwing up something else of electrical importance, you can have it (with *free* parental shipping).

Hmm see I wish a deal like that was around when I bought mine... I ended up paying $150 in the end when all was said and done...

Wiring should not be too much of a worry to you with the overhead console. Just remember to tape off the ends of the electrical connectors really well and tuck then under the headliner. If you're putting the standard overhead light only console type thing in behind the sunroof, you'll have to improvise and route the wires around the sunroof opening. Then you'll also have to repair the headliner and patch over the holes that are there for the existing OHC

Note: I forgot to mention.... the keyless entry receiver is in the overhead console, you'll need to find a way to mount it somewhere if you want to keep your remote keyless entry. I think getting the basic overhead light console is the best option because you'll keep your interior lighting and it has a spot inside to mount the keyless entry board to. I've got my extra one I may be able to part with for little to nothing

Do all Sports with the overhead have keyless entry? Maybe I have that option and don't even know (all I got with my XJ from the dealer was a key). It doesn't really matter though because my Viper 5901 has keyless and remote start.

edit: What do the new stickers on your sun visors say?

Seriously, name a price man, you know I am good for it. Thanks for the offer too.

Thanks... and it was pretty much a one-off, measure and cut, measure and cut process... Nothing tricky about it, and to me the pics are about as complete of a write up as you could get...

I guess I could do specs from memory...
Width = 44"
Backseat to gate = 32"
Height = 5.5" on the dividers, plus 3/4" plywood top

I still have the same sunvisors as I did before, you don't need to pull them off at all (unless you're putting in a new wiring harness) and they just clip right into indents on the new overhead console

Yep. It's very acurate too.

I recently changed my speedo gear to the 32 tooth. So my OHC reads 16 mpg. Which is correct I guess.

Mine reads 16.1 MPG with 225's on it, which the computer thinks are 215's so maybe .2-.4 more.
