Also started working on my in dash cluster, got a cardboard make up. But after talking to the guy that mkes the wj a-pilar cluster....he said that enough guys would like the plastic piece behind the steering wheel/ below the guage cluster, replaced to accept 2 guages let me know. They won't make um unless enough guys want them.

Just a thought, but ill have pic's of my carboard template up later tomorrow.
id get one ...but could they make it like you can buy one with 2 guages like you said ...but then they make ones that have 1 guage on the left side and another one with one guage on the right ....reason why im saying this is ...i have my CB Mic mounted on the right side

I smoked my buddy's FJ Cruiser. He hung for the first 20 yards but it was all over after that. I love the 4.7HO!!

i have my CB mic mounted on the right side of my steering wheel to but the idea i have wont interfer at all. ill take some pics of what i got in my head. but basicly if you take that top platis pice off there is a tun of room in there. i also trimmed the plastic covering the steering collum to allow for more room to the left and right of it (gauges will sit a little lower and no block the tach and speedo...i hope...lol) currently i bending and cutting cardboard for an idea, then ill try and convert it to alluminum. im looking to have it bolt into the 2 bigger bolts on each side of the steering collum on the metal cross piece (sorry for bad termonology) and maybe screw into the plastic covering its going around if more support is needed. but using .050 think aluminum i dont think support will be an issue for 2 52mm guages. but again ill post pics when i get home later of what i got so far

Spring break for me so I changed the oil in both my Jeep and my girlfriends Saturn. Need a new air filter, anyone have a good suggestion? I have the 4.0 L.
Planning on plaits-dipping the badges here shortly too.

Brought 10 gallons of gas back from Wyoming while on the drive home from a snowmobiling trip. $3.32 a gallon sure beats my $4.20 a gallon back at home, so I put that in my WJ yesterday.

Today I ordered a Warn front receiver. I cant wait to get it and get it mounted up. That'll make a nice recovery point for my trip over to the Oceano Dunes during spring break.
