Is yours broke or does it just act up like mine was? If so, save some money and pop it off and stretch out that old spring
I'm missing the the button on passenger side leaver, that's all

Progress Update:

UPS brought me some goodies!

All new lights and chrome bezels, hood bumpers, door springs, & kick panels. I can finally get that hood adjusted properly, replace door springs, and I've got the kick panels for the upcoming carpet install(this weekend).

Also, I'm picking up some of the newer style wheels(88-91) tomorrow from another forum member. I plan to restore those later this winter, after I finish the interior. Then exterior this spring/summer. Slowly but surely!

I was lucky enough to find one on ebay for $7.00. To my knowledge they are not available new any more. Also... maybe you can find a used one from another vehicle that is compatible.

Awesome! That's good to know. I know I'll need a hand with the suspension lift coming up(hint hint)

So what are your plans for yours?

Bouncing Speedometer Update:

Soooo...

I finally got the replacement gauge cluster in today.

I had left the bezel off of the dash to save some time when installing the new one. Since I had already replaced all the bulbs and cleaned my existing cluster, I just changed out the speedometer/odometer gauge.

So after replacing both speedo cables and now, the speedometer itself... IT Works PERFECTLY! No more bouncing needle!

On my 82 Cherokee I can't get the gauge cluster out, it wedges between the steering shaft and dash, I have not tried that hard but do I half to lower the column,

I have no idea about your '82, but on mine all I had to do to get the cluster out was remove the 4 screws, wiggle it out enough to reach my hand in behind to disconnect the speedo cable, 2 electrical connections, and slide it out.

Ok, we'll I'm bringing it to a big heated shop with 5 bays big enough for big rig hooked to a 53' trailer to fit, I has 2 big rig pits that my jeep will fit on, and a wash bay, it's my grand dads company and that's the repair shop, I think they have like 100 refer trailers and 50 trucks now, plus a huge cold storage

COOL! If I ever hit it big, I'd build a shop similar to that just for the Jeeps... and of course buy MORE!
