    Default CJ Owners- Gauges

    How hard is it to wire your own gauges? Thinking about getting new gauges and a blank dash and doing work. Only the freakin speedo works reliably and with a new engine I'm tired of freaking out about the temp one.

    If you have any suggestions or tips, please reply.

    Wiring the gauges was pretty easy. I went with the Autometer Ultralights and love them. If the gauges aren't working check the ground. Mine was on the back of the dash and had broken off, If you need to completely need to rewire them, just follow the directions that come with each gauge.
    Here's what my dasy ended up looking like.


    The gauges fit the stick holes except for the speedo. I ended up just making a bezel to shrink the speedo hole and drilled new holes for the other two gauges. I should have done more research on the top gauges since where I put them interfered with the defroster duct and I had to remove it. If you want to do a custom dash check out Double D fab. They'll make pretty much whatever lay out you want and their prices are pretty good. As soon as I get the money I'll be ordering from them. @korisu56
