I like the stock XJ cluster design.. all gauges can work with the LS, although for the tach you need the pricey novak emulator

Re: Projext "V8 XJ" Build

I ordered some Dirtbound rear frame stiffeners. I liked the way they mounted and hugged the rear of the frame. Should be here on Friday

Novak radiator, triple fans, and regulator bypass should also be here Friday.
