tach would be better in the open spot on bottom left, and out of your way

I like the original better, they did not leave any room to improve upon IMO. Lol

Is it bolted to the windshield frame? Looks like it in the pic, otherwise looks nice.

It is fiberglass and it is screwed to the windshield frame. I don't ever plan on dropping the windshield. I kinda like the Tach there but I can move it... the 2.5....not!

purdy. If you are "actually" planning to use the tach in a go-fast jeep, then leave it.
