I am interested in this myself. Somehow I missed this back in April. I would prefer a mechanical speedometer. There is no place to mount the antenna that's hidden. Besides my CJ7's analog speedo is pretty spot on according to my Garmin.

Just spoke with Bart from SpeedHut (they called!) to answer some questions regarding the needs/wants of the CJ Speedometer as well as other gauges that were stock. Can someone please provide accurate measurements of the tachometer and clock?

Also, someone here lives near Orem, Utah. I'll have to find that person again. If they were to decide that building a Speedometer and gauge package were worth the investment, would someone have a Laredo dash they could loan them? That would go a long way in making sure that they had the sizes and mounting points spot on. I'd possibly be up for footing the shipping charges if it wasn't horrible but again, someone has to have an extra.

I also provided Bart links to this thread and the one on CJ-8.com so he can browse our input. So far we have actually posted some really good feedback. Any other needs/wants/hopes/fears? Questions in general?

Admin, would it be possible to create a survey of interest? Totally would buy one/Might be interested/wish I hadn't just bought a bunch of autometers/hell no, I only go OEM?

I'll see if I have anything not cut up.

Do they just need the section with the gauges or the whole dash?

Sure would be easier to ship a smaller section.

I hadn't even thought of that!

I would think they would only need the sections that gauges are housed in. But, I'll ask them and let you now. It would be a lot cheaper (I would think) to ship smaller sections than a whole long box.


I emailed them to ask and will let you know what they say. Jeff

John, Bart told me that if we have just the sections of the dash with the gauges that this would be fine. That way they can make sure the fit is correct.

If you have the sections for the Speedometer, Oil, Volt, Tach and Clock in cut up sections that would work just fine.

Let me know if I can assist. Jeff

I'm up for being an Alpha tester! I already have a radio+CB antennae(?). How big of an antenna are we talking? Maybe a little 10"er that can go on the w-shield light mount?
Just add another tab on a set of these? http://www.quadratec.com/products/12010_23.htm

I've also learned that sometimes... when people don't agree with you .... its best to hold them down and kidney punch them till they agree with you

GPS antennas are typically a different breed of antenna...

I think it's between the "4"" and "Dual" in this picture


I've had wasp nests on my CJ bigger than that.

The spare dashes I have don't have the cutout for the tach and clock.
I'll take a picture and let you/them decide. ...

I have news from Speedhut!

Email from SpeedHut:
Aaron
4:05 PM (7 minutes ago)
to me, bart, Wade

Jeff,
Bart has been working on some renderings that we would like to send to you to post on the web forum. I think you will like them!
We are working on this project with the anticipation we will proceed ahead with development.

You should hear from Bart in the next day or so.

END Email

As soon as I hear from Bart I'll post for your review.

Anyone have exact measurements for the hole the RPM and Clock occupy in the dash?

Jeff
