If there are images, I would love to see them. When I quoted your message, I see that there is a link to CJ-8.com and I believe that unless you are a member over there, you cannot see them on here as I do not see the link in the thread. It was only in the quote that I saw the link.

Kinda based if off of the kit Genright offers.

Bump to try and keep this alive in case anything is still available. Even a drawing or 3d file to try and get some made on our own.

Taking the plunge of swapping a YJ style family rear into my CJ, and would like to rebuild my front sport cage using the dash brackets. Come on!

If someone makes these, please let me know if you will make a set to sell me, especially if they will not affect the VIN sticker on the dash of the 78s.

Got a picture of where that sticker is? If Jeremy doesn't have them I likely will make some.

I would like to see some brackets with two gussets and a place for a 1" hardened bolt that could thread up into a threaded slug that is welded into the front hoop of a roll cage. It would make it easy to remove the brackets to remove the dash and access everything behind the dash.

I'm still interested in a set too. Unfortunately, I discovered this thread right after the OP stopped making them...

Count me in! I have your shackle hangers and they are works of art! I have two CJs, one is an '85 and the other is a '74....very similar configuration, but I am guessing the bolt holes are aligned differently. If I can find those details, would it be possible to do two versions? The intermediates get very little love....

Maybe he could make them with a paper template to tape on the backside of the bracket that the user could use to drill the correct hole pattern.

Does anyone know why the OP stopped making the brackets?

I will, thanks! There might be an early 70s Jeep close by that I can measure. I'll check in the next few days. Thanks for the compliment on the hangers. I'm glad you like them!

I think Jeremy sold his plasma table some time ago. One thing I'd like to avoid on the later CJs is covering the speaker grille slots. Some I've seen do that and I really see no need to do that. They should also work if the owner wants to retain the dash cover too.

Is the dash on a 74 the same as that of a 65?

Good question! My guess would be no because the tub was new in '72. Double D Fabrication makes all three vintages as does Aqualu for their aftermarket dashes, so that may be an indicator that there are three templates.

I put the 1" mark over the bolt, and it still doesn't touch the sticker. In the 2nd picture I have the end of the tape above the emissions sticker that was painted over. I would imagine that if you made them to clear the sticker, it would also clear the speaker.

Are there any new developments on this? I'm looking for something new to add to my Christmas wish list!
