Helped my uncle w/ his 81 CJ-7 Laredo today- and noticed he has this Conferr center console that I have never seen before in a Jeep. I've looked all over online but haven't seen any information on this, so I was wondering if anyone out there has this same center console or has seen it before- it's pretty neat. My uncle said the PO had it in the jeep when he bought it 15+ years ago.
Drove it for the first time today till I found out the gas gauge don't work lol

Nice 7! looks fairly rust free, sweet for your island I think? I have seen some Scouts in Kona that were hardly holding together but still running. 10 years ago, it seemed liked there were a lot of Scouts on Hawaii in particular, not as much on the other islands.
Made a factory correct T176 reverse light harness with correct connectors and correct 14 gauge wires (one white w/black tracer), and correct wire loom.
Switched to a gl4 85w-90 gear oil in my t176. I guessit felt a little better but no improvement in hard shifting into 1st and 2nd. Looks like I'll be pulling the thing down this winter vacation
1984 jeep cj7, 258 I6, rebuilt T176,rebuilt Dana 300, amc 20 , dana 30, 4.10's Trac-lok in rear , 4.10's detroit soft locker in dana 30, 2.5 inch bds suspension lift, 1 inch polyurethan body mount lift. Line ex. weber carburetor. factory tach. factory clock ,oem replacement speedomter cluster, and oil pressure gauge, factory volt gauge.
For the final push to install the dash, column and AC, I wrapped 80% of the under dash harness up to the speedometer with the factory type non-adhesive electrical tape.
I came inside to study the schematic to make the speedometer connections and saw the voltmeter. Before I started wrapping the harness I had ammeter in my head and like a dumbA$$ I cut yellow circuit 10 in several places from the gauge back to the ignition switch and all the way to the bulkhead. Tomorrow I have to piece it back together, take the bulkhead apart to repair the connection and wrap it to the outside of the harness. Dang, I hate stupid mistakes like that especially when I have to backtrack and make repairs.
