    Yesterday I had a short somewhere
    Causing a small fire behind the gauge cluster. Center part of dash.

    Does anyone know where I can get
    Replacement for this ?

    kind of vague on what is needed-
    look in a jeep part manual and search part numbers google,
    contct a junk yard specializing in jeeps,
    search your local junk yard...
    Post here and some one might have a source.

    Finding that "short somewhere causing a small fire" sounds concerning

    I did not think to address the cause - hoping it is corrected -
    aggrex is right that is the priority -
    what caused fire?

    The cluster is a self contained unit with one plug feeding all of it. Hopefully replacing it will fix your problem.
