Hi, I am posting here because I am doing a YJ to CJ conversion. I bought a dash with all the CJ gauges installed out of a wreckyard. The jeep had been open and exposed to the elements for an unknown period. Any idea if the gauges will be usable? Is there anyway to test them other than installing them to the battery.
Thanks

Idk what the specs on them are, but if you can find them and have a decent multimeter you should be able to bench test the electric gauges.

Why not do a trial fit and see if the gauges work? I think with any type of conversion or modification, it's wise to do a trial fit. There always seems to be something that you didn't think of as you do the assembly. A trial fit eliminates mid-assembly problems.

In your case, if the gauges don't work and you can't discover a way to test them, you can adapt the dash to accept aftermarket gauges. Or locate a speedo/gauge cluster that's known to work.

Are you doing the front end sheet metal too? Post some pics of the process.

Good Luck, L.M.
