The nicest dash EVER in a CJ

Got these pics in an email this morning from a place in Florida called "THE SHOP LLC." I've never actually done any business with them, just talked to them a little and got on his mailing list at SEMA. They are more known for muscle car stuff, especially Chevelles. This is probably the nicest dash ever in a CJ. Not my style but you've got to admit its nice work. The billet vents in the dash are for the Vintage Air a/c that's going in it.

Looks nice but those covered switches are stupid. I never understood why people like those unless you are afraid you might make someone blinded and veer off the road if you accidentally turn on your fog lights. Honestly.. comeon!

Swap that blue for black, and it'd be perfect. I love it!

Or locker switches, in dash winch switches, could be alot of things you dont want turning on while you're flying down the road haha..

Plus blinding someone is illegal and not recommended because I've seen accidents happen from it

They're just cool, you could put a normal switch in there, but where is the fun in that? I have 5, and none of them control anything important (3 sets of lights, and 2 heated seats). No one expects a Jeep to have heated seats, or the controls for them to be under a missile switch.

Looks very nice. I would love something like that in my TJ

I reckon those vents are from either a Commander or a Chrysler Crossfire.
