All done, and waiting on my mounting bracket to get here.
I'm going to use all of my old solenoid and control mounts that are already mounted underhood and in cab. Just need to hook up the three wires and a ground.

Couple months ago noticed a distinct but random tap tap sound from new ish engine. 8k miles. Got progressively worse. Yanked it apart and yikes. Cyl 6 piston is literally toast. Time for GP hard decisions. Was a Spendy 4.6 stroker build. Builder retired and moved away... no wheeling for a while. Bummed.
Bewildered... sent oil for testing and full of aluminum and babbit...

I mounted my dimmer knob on the underside lip of my dash so that I wouldn't have another hole in my dash. I mounted my tac knob right next to it as well.
One would have to look pretty had to see them from the seated position.
I would tend to agree with you on having numbers on the temp scale. (Mine is the CJ style so I never really know the true degrees.
When I did my LS swap though I picked up an OBDII WiFi reader which links to my phone and it gives me real time read outs on Temp, RPM's Horsepower, intake temp, Timing, gas mileage.... and reads codes.

|DougE||Here's my thread on marrying Speedhut and Painless. The gauges have a dimmer knob that requires a small hole in the dash to mount. The CJ version has a temp gauge without numbers to look like the original, but you might want to get a version with a numbered scale.|

(1) I see that you bought the tach and clock as well. Did you get the stainless steel dash with precut holes? What do you feel is the best option for dash (as mine is needing replacement)?
(2) Do you have an opinion on the chrome vs silver outer ring option?
(3) Do you know if the Painless Wiring
Harness meets the needs for easy fit with these gauges?
(4) How do you tune their brightness?

Took it out on a trail run with the boys.
