Ok, Aaron and Bart and the rest at SpeedHut have listened and at least made mock-ups of what could be the Speedometer. I am working to contact the appropriate moderators on this site. Until then, here are pictures of what they have done. If you want a link to the thread for the discussion over at the other forum, just PM me.

That is cool. Very impressive. I'd be all over that if it was affordable.

Well if SpeedHut follows their usual path, then they would offer the Speedo and Voltage and Oil Pressure gauges as a package. www.speedhut.com

I just caught up with this thread. I am about 45 minutes north of speedhut and if they need/want to take measurements of a dash or do a test fitting or anything else I can take the time to go to them. I have the stock cutouts for the clock and tach as far as I know as well. My dash is in decent shape except for right at the radio slot but it doesn't effect the mounts for the volt and oil pressure gauges.

If they get that far and need a template/real deal to work with, I'll shoot you a PM. Great idea!!! We provided a speedometer for them and they made good use of it, obviously. I am sure a real dash would aid them as well.

I would be interested in an OEM looking gauge I use their speedos in my street sweepers and love it
It is a simple install and would be awesome in a jeep especially for those who switch tire sizes for the seasons.
They were even able to program the new speedo with the old mileage so all my maintenance records still matched up.
I would be in 100%

I like the one with out the Tach. looks more stock, and less cluttered. Would the fuel gauge be programmable/actually work, that would be a big motivator for me.

I have the dash with a clock and tach in it if they still need it. I'm just outside Pittsburgh. I'm in for a whole gauge package when they are finished developing. I love the design so far looks great! Will the backlight and indicator lamps be LED?

Pretty cool. Any guesses as to the price?

I'd guess between 400-450.

That price would put many of us out of the running for these gauges
I hope you're wrong regarding the guess.....
