The boneheaded previous owner of my CJ8 cut out holes in the dash panel for speakers. I am trying to keep it as original as possible, but I think I’m ready to replace the dash panel (There are a few other scratches and holes that make it look even worse). Any suggestions for the best replacement dash panel (with stereo but without tach & clock)? Thanks.

I'll have one off of my aftermarket tub here soon if that works for you? It's basically a standard issue dash, uncut.

I used a Rugged Ridge after market dash for my CJ6.
I put in the extra holes for the tach, clock and the 3rd guages

Also put in the hole for Spod switches.

Everything in the dash is Speed Hut.

Thanks for all the input. I think I may be overly optimistic in looking for an easy fix with an aftermarket replacement (i.e. from Quadratec, Morris 4X4, etc.) that looks exactly like the original one. This may take a little longer than I thought - Which is half the fun of it!

Don,

I'm looking to add the tachometer and clock to my stock dash. Do you have measurements or a diagram on where to specifically cut the holes? Thanks.

I would rather find a donor in great shape. I picked one up a couple of years ago. Well in advance of me being ready to refurbish and install in my Scrambler. Just sits on the shelf for now.
