wiring a tach, temp, and volts gauge.

my 2000xj doesnt have any of those gauges and i was thinking about adding them. how hard is it to wire up each one? and are there any other gauges you would add before those? i have subs and ive always wanted to know how much power the amp takes off my battery

Re: wiring a tach, temp, and volts gauge.

It would be easier to just pick up a instrument cluster!

Just change the instrument panel. You don't even have to change the senders as the late models use the same senders for lights/gauges, all of the wiring exists.

You can do that, but I would change the instrument panel and then put different gauges in the pod--vacuum, if an AW4 trans temp, etc.

Re: wiring a tach, temp, and volts gauge.

X2 agreeing with Joe here, I'd swap clusters ($20 at junkyard, make sure you get one out of a 2000) and then put other gauges in the pods. A tranny temp gauge and maybe an electronic compass are things I would add (if you don't get an overhead console for the compass.)
