Replacement gauges

Have. 1990 my with 4.2. Tired of working on gauges. Anyone have a recommendation or gauges that won’t break the bank and do not require a bunch of mods? If you have done aftermarket replacement what did you use and any problems?
Thanks for any advice

You can always use eBay as a source, there are many folks that buy Jeeps just to part them and sell on eBay, there are also Jeep specific salvage yards such as Collin Bros that may have what you need.

For new direct replacement parts:

1995 Rio Grande • 2.5L • AX-5 • 50,000 miles • Stock

Autometer has a wide variety of gauges as suitable replacements.

If I had to shop for New, that's the direction I'd go, But I love spending hours keeping my 30 yr old stuff working. Every time someone sees my stock analog clock second hand ticking away they have to ask if it keeps accurate time. Yup, perfectly, now the gas gauge is another matter. LOL

I was able to get everything working but the temp. Wires ohm good from sender to gauge. Short the wire out and gauge pegs. Ordered a newsending unit see what happens. Volt meter only reads 9-10 volts?
