Built for a lifetime of service under the harshest conditions, this is the no compromise tach for no compromise builds. When you’re ready for the best, there isn’t another choice.

Will this fit in and work on my 1973 Jeep CJ5 with a straight 6 cylinder engine? There is a 5" opening on the right side of the dash where a speaker used to be with four holes for mounting. Is this compatible? Thank you.
This tach is designed to drop into a 4-5/8" hole. You will need to measure the opening. This tach will work with the straight six.

I have this tach... question is can i install a gray trin ring on it like my other sport-comp gauges?
The bezel is machine pressed and crimped on and not something you could change. You can send it in to us and for a service fee, we can put a Sport Comp style bezel on it. Please either send us an email or give us a call for more information.
