YJ Dash Question

Does anyone know if it is possible to change from the original dash(of a YJ) to a CJ dash??

yes, I am in the process of putting one in my project. So far all bolt holes line up. The defrost ducts are going to be an issue. I don't like the dash pad so I likely won't use it. Wiring ... I'm using a 401 in the yj so I won't need all the yj stuff. I think off-road had an article on this somewhere on the web.

Big Round Speedometers are Cool!!!
hope this helps

Defroster duct solution:

Cut holes for the factory ducts. Then either use your original dash pad or be like me & fab up a dash box with integrated defroster ducts.

89breaker - any pics of your dash setup? Im looking to flat dash mine as well and this is pretty much the only snag I can think of. Thanks!

No problem, I will take some tonight.

The dash has been pulled (electrical problems) until recently.

Dash pics

Disregard the loose wires & dirt......I'm not done.

For the defrost, I am using the stock pad until I can fab up a dash box with defroster ducts.

Also, if you google this subject, you will get about a week's worth of reading.
