Interior Tear Down

I'm tearing down the interior of my YJ today and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions from their previous experience of things that you wish you knew beforehand.


I was also wondering for the dash where the screws are located. I'm a bit short on light (the Jeep is stuck in the garage until I can get the tires pumped) and a bit overstocked on rust so I can't see very much.

If anyone had pics, that'd be great. I've already begun taking screws out but I'm guessing I'm missing some as the dash isn't coming out.

Can't seem to get the section with the glove box off. Any tips?
I'm looking to tear the entire interior out. So, the steering column and all will have to come eventually. I don't know how to tackle this.

Also couldn't get the seats out with my ratchet so will have to scoop an impact gun for that.


This thing is rusted so bad that even under the dashboard plastic, there's piles of rust. It's horrifying.

Looks like it'll have to be a new tub. Recommendations? Would like to get a used one preferably.

I'm assuming the tub would include all the dash metal? Or is that replaceable without replacing the tub?

there are 4 pia screws behind the dash for the glove box. I think they are 1/4". 2 on each side. good luck I took it off once and I probally won't again. its just very limited on space. probally a real fine tooth ratchet would be key because you don't have much swing room for each stroke.

dont take the dash out individually..... fold down the windshield take the screws off the top and pull the whole dash out.... you'll still have to unhook some wiring but this was much easier. i would not have gotten the glove box out without doing this. the seat bolts were are rusted so bad on mine, that soakin them for days with pb blaster did nothing, broke a few of them off.... also, dont be surprised if you find some cracks in the floor board under the seat frames. i've recently done the whole inside of my jeep so i'll be as much help as possible.... may have to PM me as i'm not on here daily

I spent a half day and broke a few torx head sockets trying to get the OEM bolts out to remove the roll bar. I tried PB, heat, cold. I ended up welding hex head bolts to the top of the torx bolts. Disassembling the dash is easy and should only take a few hours even if you do it piece by piece. I'll have to try the all in one approach described above next time... sounds like a good idea.
