1989 jeep engine swap

im in a bit of a predicament. I bought my jeep from a friend, and they said ited been sitting for two years so i took the engine out and the wiring harness.
I found a guy that has a 1999 2.5 four cylinder and i got the engine harness, but i need to know how and if i can make the engine wiring harness compatible to the cab harness

Get yourself a 92 - 95 harness. It will hook up to the engine no prob and will be much more easy to adapt the the cab harness.

since ive got the current harness in good condition which is an 89, but the 99 is cut at a certain spot all the way through the wires. how can i mate the two instead of buy anything costly. the 99 harness has two connections to the computer and i can get the third from its original vehicle.

Break down and by the harness off EBAY.. you will be miles ahead. Time and money are the same thing and you about to piss a bunch of both away. For waht, nothing that a 100 bill can take care of in a matter of minutes.
