the feedback is clear.. Our gauges look good, and have a better value than competing designs.Read More
We love working with US suppliers
Its been a while. So we have 2 new shirts this July. The first is a new take on an old favorite, while the red shirts were popular, more of you prefer black. You spoke, we listened. That, and we know that its hot out there these days, and you need something that breathes and feels good. So we upgraded the shirts they are printed on, to a new breathable fabric.
There is even an embroidered hat version, which gets you all color coordinated.
The newest addition to our lineup is our XJ Hero tee! No other Offshoot of a vehicle lineup has been found to be as or sometimes more capable than the mainstay. The Jeep for the underdogs. The hero that budget jeepers have asked for. the vehicle we all wish to see come back. The XJ Cherokee.
Printed here in Pittsburgh at Commonwealth Press on the same sport fabric as our Pressure shirts. Currently in production, so get one fast, or they will be all spoken for.
we have another shirt coming next month, just in time for our booth at the Great Smokey Mountain Jeep Invasion. Come check them all out.
Specifically, JK and JKU Wranglers that will be in company booths for this November's SEMA show. We are looking to expand our presence at the show, last year having 3 vehicles showing off our work, and completing some spectacular builds.
Whats in it for you?
- A look that ties in your exterior and interior themes.
- Discounted rates for custom builds.
- A quick turnaround.
- A pattern we can mass produce for you after the show is over.
Contact us today for more info. We have limited spots and time available, and as always, your build details remain private until you unveil it. Feel free to send NDAs to our main office address if needed.
Azzy’s Design Works remains committed to providing top notch design to industry partners and individual clients alike. After launching this year, our custom 2007-2017 Jeep Wrangler clusters have rocketed to be our best selling gauge face kits, starting with 4 patterns, we have grown to 22 different patterns in 5 styles. If you are interested in carrying the fast installing, great looking, and distinctive looking product, let us know. We have fantastic rates for runs as small as 10, in an industry that usually works in batches of a thousand or more.
Lots of you have written us asking about custom gauges for Jeep JKs. the bottom line, we have a waiting list now, and are swamped. This is partially due to the successes of our hard parts (the Jeep XJ and TJ 4x4 linkage kits) and partial building the business, in some ways literally.
Our new website is coming. Including a dealer network. We have a large following on other sales sites, mainly Ebay and Amazon, the latter requiring us to create large shipments of parts every week or so in order to keep in demand products on the shelf. Staff is slim, as Azzy handles 90% of the day to day, with some help from friends and family. Nick is concentrating on his career writing for Gunmagwarehouse.com and The Firearm Blog but still comes by the shop now and again.
Our new office is habited, but far from finished. Not bad for 5 years... all in all.
Stay tuned as we bring more cool designs, and a few other new products. If we get the chance... more videos.
It is our pleasure to introduce our new premium camo license! Not too long ago, at a Jeep show in PA, we met up with the good reps from Moon Shine Camo. We got to talking, one thing led to another, and we are pleased to announce that from here on out, Moon Shine premium camouflage, including Outshine©, Harvest Moon©, Muddy Girl©, Wild Fire©, Toxic©, and Undertow©, will be available options for our personalized gauge faces!
All of these patterns will be available to any gauge backer for an additional $10. If we hit our stretch goal, then they will be available at no extra cost. Check them out on kickstarter.

When our design studio first discussed raising money for new pricey equipment via Kickstarter, the caffeinated late night discussions went through tons of the typical, and not so typical backing rewards.
Post cards, light bars, our own products, well, that last one wasn’t so crazy. People have been asking for 07 and up Wrangler gauge faces forever. But I still wanted something big, a grand ambition project. So, why not take our existing model kits which we made using Autodesk’s brilliant 123DMake and our own in house Full Spectrum laser, and kick it up a notch.
So, we thought we would make one of these, probably in a JK, waterjet at our local Techshop in Pittsburgh, out of aluminum sheets. Not a cheap proposal, and estimates were high. So, we priced it at what would at least break us even, and suddenly we hit Kickstarter’s limit of $10,000. Thats some Dubai money right there.
Yeah, not a lot of people are interested (there are a few). So, we came up with an idea to size it down after chatting with our friends at JPFreek Magazine.
That’s why we are introducing the 1/4 scale art piece, wood and acrylic pieces, alternating, and lit. your choice of Wrangler JK, Cherokee XJ, or Comanche MJ. Just like these much smaller concept pieces. Available now on Kickstarter, for the much friendlier cost of 1800. Still a lot, but not bad for a 2'x4' lit homage to a few of our favorite models of Jeep.
And yes, if you will pay the freight, we will even ship to Dubai.

Its late, lots of paperwork has been done, and I feel it is owed to those that follow us to update on what has been going on here at Azzy's Design Works. Whats new over the last few months?
- We still make the only custom Jeep back lit gauges on the market. And the best non-lit ones (looking at you, XJ guys).
- We have really really cool camo prototypes in for our new JK / JKU line. Just cant show them due to licensing agreements, yet.
- The kickstarter campaign is coming soon. Preview will be up in the week.
- We are expanding. Which, frankly, is a bit terrifying. When I started this shop in 2012, it was fully occasional, printing on my boss's plotter, buying material, and cutting by hand. Hundreds of gauges later, we are buying expensive equipment, and expanding our product line. Not to mention making a huge step towards being my 9-5.
- We no longer make decals. Sorry, we loved it, and we made the best for the best price. But, with the move to our equipment being 100% in house, we just dont have the large format printing capabilities.
- On that note.. we make everything on our own equipment now! Its all made here in Finleyville PA. Dont blink, you will miss the stoplight.
- And yes, those that have asked... I am feeling a lot better. Repetitive strain injuries are no joke. If anyone needs advice on them, Im not a doctor, but been dealing on and off for 8 years. Its getting better, thanks to some great procedures and a FANTASTIC physical therapy team.
More announcements coming soon. The biggest one right now? We are now a SEMA member.
Never thought I would be here. And that's thanks to all of you who follow us, like our work, buy our gauges, and continue to morally support us (I think you industry guys know who you are, and really, thank you. )
things to watch for on our site and facebook page:
- Working on a Siberian Road Rally with the Baker Street Babes?
- Nick and Azzy finalizing production runs on JK clusters?
- More gun engraving?
- Piles of stickers and a new printer?
Yep, we had to get a new printer recently, and may be working on rebuiling the old one so it comes home to our Finleyville shop. Stay tuned!
Not posting as much as we should. We've updated and streamlined our store listings, and lowered the cost of shipping (goes down for us, goes down for you!). We have added friends, look for some work between us and BleepinJeep.com and the crew at Otaku Drive Time.
Those that follow us on FB know that we raised money last year for a local charity, Project Bundle Up , and were recently told by their awesome staff that all of you helped purchase 13 full outfits for kids and seniors to keep warm in this brutal PA winter. Kudos to all of the Jeep community, it wouldn't be possible without your help.
Keep a look out for our new T-Shirts coming soon, as well as our kickstarter campaign which is right around the corner. That means not only will we have ZJ and WJ Jeep gauges available, we will have JK gauges this summer!
We've opened a shop on Etsy, as an outlet for our engraved items. Its somewhat a departure from our main design, but helps us to not only keep the doors open, but ad a creative "palate cleanser" that one needs here and there. Its a family affair too, because many of the designs and ideas come from interaction and gifts that we do for friends and relatives.
Happy shopping! Until the end of the year, use the following code to save 10% off your order.
In response to a common question, we offer a clear explanation on our gauge kits.
Lots of our stuff is not too complicated, nor is it a secret on how we put it all together. We've been posting smaller / personal projects to Instructables, and will be adding more as we go along, to include our Cherokee XJ gauge instructions, as well as the pool ball shifters.
On that note, we finally got that adapter in, and have mods to try before we can put one on an AW4 transmission.
But somehow, never seems to move as fast as you thought it did. We've mostly moved into he new shop, and have been plugging away at lots of projects coming in, while working at calibrating the new equipment and getting material samples for engraving and cutting.
Part of what makes that so difficult is that we are working with materials for firearms, and it is not cheap to just start cutting into a S&W M&P frame.
Our patterns and jigs for laser cutting gagues is being worked on at the moment too. Cut by laser is much more efficient for all of our gauges because of the thickness of the materials involved. Knife based cutters do OK for small runs, but because of our insistence on using the best materials for all of our work, it gets tough to do a larger order or run for a club or distributor.
Speaking of which, we are working hard with suppliers to keep material costs down, so our prices do not raise, but there may be an increase coming this summer. We will do what we can to keep things affordable, and think that even at an increased price, ADW gauges are the best in the business, hands down.
Look for more photos on our facebook page as we get going with the laser. Once we are good, we will be taking orders for engraving and for custom cut products, big and small.
