I've got one on my green Jeep. Fit is ok, but not nearly as nice looking as an original dash (it covers up the "Jeep" on the passenger side).
Don't remember who made them. I bought mine back around 2000 and IIRC paid about $50-60 for it.
on another topic.... what's your take on my axle situation? Prep & etch, sand as needed, paint.... or sandblast, prime, and paint?
(Note: I only have access to a blasting cabinet that is too small for the axles..... so I'd have to pay to get that done.... worth it?)
Also considering the standpoint of sandblasting removing more metal than chemical rust treatment.... what's the right move here??
This guy has done about what you're doing. Lots of pics and pretty specific. Done on a budget too.
wow yea that is a pretty nice build. I've never thought of steam cleaning the axles first, I have to say. His prep and etch turned out pretty good on the tub. So maybe it'll be steam clean, wirebrush a bit, prep & etch, then prime and paint.
of course I might want to get my gearing changed and possibly do one piece axles before then, I'm not sure.
I sheared off about 4 axles in my tan Jeep before going Superior 1 piece. My green Jeep has the original 2 piece axles in it and I haven't had a problem from them. When I shear one, I'll go one piece, but I'm not going to replace my 2 piece axles till one fails.
I'm only running 31's, but had a buddy running 35's on 2 piece axles. I told him one would break, but it never did. Go figure.
I don't have a steam cleaner. I just wire brush everything, prep and etch, and then paint.
