Would a TJ dash fit in a YJ?

I was looking at a magazine and the inside corner of the TJ dash looks like it has the same mounting holes as a YJ and CJ. It was those 3 or so torque bolts near the door jam. Anyone that has a TJ and maybe an older rig have a comment on this?

Not sure about a TJ, but you can retrofit a CJ dash into your YJ pretty easily - I've done it.

Here's a link:

Good luck

Re: Would a TJ dash fit in a YJ?

Na, I like my dash better than the CJ dash. I think there was a link to put autometer gauges on a new setup. I like the TJ dash for the radio placement plus it would be trick to have in a Jeep that shouldn't have it. if The Tj dash swap isn't possible, which I hightly doubt, I would just replace my gauges with VDO white faced gauges. and maybe put a steel glove box in with a CJ style grab bar. Hey does that GM hei work with the stock carb? it doesn't give me problems like it does most people.

A company in Dallas makes custom dashes that fit both CJ,YJ and TJ's. It is more of a flat style look similar to the old CJ dashes.

There is also another company in Bend, Oregon that makes custom dashes for YJ's that makes use of the heater and radio openings. It was featured a couple of issues ago in JP Magazine.

I've done the YJ dash conversion using the dash from Dave's Off-Road in Oregon.
