I have an 87 trooper II 2.3 carb'd.
I found that the radio (for me at least) is not in the best place. Gear shift is in the way.
SO.... I switched the gauges from the top of the dash area to where the radio is. a lil bit of fabrication and walla... worked fine and can see the gauges fine.
The radio is now mounted where the gauges were.
I made a custom box to be able to hold the radio. The first generation of this had cup holders on top.
I am now in the process of making the second generation of the Radio compartment.
I have purchased some new aftermarket gauges(oil pressure and water temp and volmeter), I plan on installing these and the fuel gauge back tp the top area of the dash and the radio above them.
The area where the radio was initialy will become a drink holder area and an ashtray(Solid steel from OLD chevy).
The radio will be on top in its own slot and the gauges will be mounted below the radio at a slight angle and offset to be able to get the four gauges mounted in the space.
There are two screws that hold this "box" in place. they are the same screw holes that held the original gauges in place.
Will update with some pictures and any problems when the second generation radio/gauge box is done.
