i've thought about fabbing one up out of aluminum sheet or something with Auto Meter guages. i think it would look nice, but the only thing would be keeping the odometer correct and in the cluster. i think it would look a lot better and be more functional. if you build one or buy one, post on here and let us know

I had to change my gauges because of my V8 swap. It's not worth it if you don't have to.
I didn't look to see what year your jeep is but a tons of circuits in my jeep are routed through the instrument panel logic board. You could do it - but you will have to re-wire a bunch of crap if you want it to work the same way.
I ended up having Dakota Digital make me a new gauge panel and I like it a lot. I'm not a big fan of all digital gauges but it was the quickest, easiest for me to get back on the road.
I will post pics once I get them in. Hopefully next week sometime.
I've got the same ones right now. They may be a little bit "ricer" but I actually like them. Much more so than the crappy stock gauges. After seeing that thread on here about the different coloured LEDs for the dash, I might go that route when I get tired of this option. The only downside is being Canadian, they are in MPH not KPH in the large numbers, but I've gotten used to it.
Here's few pics I just snapped, it's not dark enough to get a really good lit up one yet:
Yeah I saw those on ebay, at one point they had a carbon fiber looking overlay on there that would cover up all of the white except where the acutal gaguges and lights are at. I thing that would have looked really cool. I tried to find one on there but none are up right now.
