Jeep YJ dash in a manche?

So I really like the Jeep YJ dash and was wondering how hard it would be to put a YJ dash in a Comanche? Are they the same length? And could I hooks up the Comanche sensors and wire and wire them to the YJ gauges?

I dont believe it will fit. The whole front is different between the XJ/MJ and the YJ. The YJ is based on the CJ dash. Its just a flat panel with all gauges and instruments bolted to it. The MJ is a separate components that tilts down.

That said...with the proper tools, enough time and $$$, anything is possible.

May have to fab up some brackets and cut/lengthen the dash .If you did that the hvac ducting would stick out like no other unless you made a covering for it if you kept it .
