Anyone have some advice / instructions for the heater box? I have a brand new dash with all new parts, the only electrical component left inside the Jeep that isn't new is the heater.

Does anyone know if the dash overlay will support a radio? I want to run a vintage vibes or retrosound radio but the PO cut out the dash to accommodate a newer head unit

Not really. It's flexible. It would be moving around and probably start to pull the overlay off. Maybe one of those stainless steel overlays would work if they make them for the two post radio. If you were really desperate you could herculine it and make it look pretty similar to the plastic black overlay as my herculiner in my jeep matches my overlay pretty good.

Where did you get that voltage and oil pressure gauge ? what brand are they ?

I think those are AMP meters and a Mechanical oil pressure gauge.

Called "MW" or "MAKE WAVES" gauges. Also try "Internatonal MW Gauges"

JC Penny sells somes for sure

Yes? I haven't decided yet, cost depending. I would like something easy I can just bolt in, but I haven't found anything like that online.

No, the overlay is a textured plastic sheet, strictly cosmetic.

I think if that were my dash, that was hacked for DIN radio, I would make a plate for the OEM type standard two knob radio and attache the plate with countersunk screws. Then use the plastic dash overlay to cover it up, and make it look OEM.

Nice job. Do you, or anyone else, know if the original '76 CJ7 Dash Panel came with the speaker cutouts on both sides and if there was an option for the tach and clock?

I am restoring mine and the dash panel was chopped open at the radio area for a newer radio and as long as I was going to replace it figure I would add the tach, and second speaker. Bukt I don't want to add them if they were not an original option.

Thanks for help

Not for 1976. Only one speaker on passenger side was there up until about 1980 I think. Then two speakers became the standard.

Clock and tach only were standard on Laredo, Golden Eagle, Limited and Jamboree. All other models it's an option.

That what I figured out about the speakers. Wikipedia says there was a Golden Eagle model in 76 but I can't find it anywhere else. Do you know if they made a Golden Eagle
in '76?

I am finding a few things that were different in 76 & 77 versus other years. Do you know if the cables are drastically different sizes on 78-86 versus 76&77?

You are a wealth of knowledge that is gratefully appreciated.

I need to replace the speakers and temp gauge in my 1984 CJ7......my question to all of you knowledgeable people is....do I need to remover the steering column to have enough clearance to get the dash panel far enough out from the tub to access the speakers? I may try to replace the speedometer head while I am in there because the temp gauge has died. Is removing the steering column bezels enough?


Any guidance you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

I replaced my front speakers without moving the dash. It was tight, but doable.

i can't say on the temp gauge, however, as my original still works.

You can remove/ replace the speakers and the speedometer without removing the dash. Not easy, but it's doable.

My '79 has a single speaker, and the powerhouse, original AM only radio. I was able to replace my speaker without removing the dash.
