    Default JK Upper Dash Custom Gauge Pod and GPS Mount

    This is a custom gauge pod and GPS mount I built during my spare time in Iraq for the upper part of the dash. It will hold 2 Gauges and my Navigon GPS will mount to the right side. I used a factory dash piece and built a metal hood that sits on top. I then sent it to a painter in Livingston TX (Air Illusion Graphics) and he did an incredible job on it. He painted it Detonator Yellow with piles of skulls on top. I am extremely pleased with the way it turned out as there aren't many options out there for gauges in a JK. I will post some more pics once I install it but that could be a couple months I have to get out of this desert first. Here are some pictures of it during the process.

    No a company called Air Illusion Graphics in Livingston TX did the air brush work.
