From looking at their other products it would be a minimum of $400 I'm guessing.

But when you think about it, I dropped $90 on a crappy foreign made Omix replacement speedometer that doesn't read accurately and the needle bounces all over. I spent another $75 each (times 4) on Autometer replacement oil pressure, water temp, fuel level and volt gauges, and my fuel level gauge still doesn't read accurately due to the crappy quality of replacement sending units. That's right up there in the ballpark of what you could spend for a single high quality gauge that will outlast the rest of the Jeep and be accurate, reliable and modern while keeping the original look.

I hope you're wrong regarding the guess.....
Here's a link to Speedhut's website. You can browse their existing catalog of gauges and pricing, and infer from that what a custom gauge cluster like ours might sell for...

In addition to all of that, they provide a lifetime warranty (as long as YOU own the gauge). I don't think you get that elsewhere do you?

(nope, i do not work for them, just excited about the product.)

Agreed. I think I'm in for <$150. $200 is probably my max if it came down to it.

Roll one. Smoke one. When you live like this you're suppose to party..

I was thinking about this today as well. I took apart my fuel gauge the other day and its toast and my speedo cable broke last weekend. I'd spend some money on this right now if it was an option. I'd rather have new hardware than new Omix or Crown parts that will break in another month. Come on Speed Hut.


EDIT: Just found this update on CJ8 from a few days ago. Looks like prelim pricing is set: base $425, mid $500 (+tach), top $550 (+inclinometer).

Its going to be expensive but I think it may just be worth it for me. Probably don't need the tach and would just stick with the basic unit.

Sweet. It is expensive, but not as bad as I thought it would be. Looking forward to seeing them.

What does it look like at night.

Well, Speedhut specializes in customizing your gauge, so it can look just like it does in the daytime, but the letters, numbers and hash marks are brightly lit using LED's behind the face.

But, if you customize the gauge, you can do some pretty crazy stuff.

Gray Face - day / night


White Face - day / night

Were are we at on pricing on these, for the "basic" speedo, and a full compliment of accessory gauges?

One other thing to think about on a CJ5 is that by eliminating the speedo gear you can run a shorter tail shaft housing/longer rear drive shaft, on a D300 I think Advance Adapters has the kit for that.

I wish I knew about this before I cut a bunch of holes ! I don't know if they make , or will make something that would fit my 61 Willys wagon .Not a whole lot of them out there so , it would probably not be a good idea . I would only want fuel , m.p.h. , high/low beams, odometer

Same questions here. Is the pricing finalized, and will there be an option to delete the tachometer?
