I have been out of the loop trying to get my car running again. Did you get it figured out?

Hey guys, I know this thread is a few weeks old, but depending on where you are at in your harness struggles, I got a complete harness (for the whole jeep) on ebay for $250. I had to do that as my yj is an 88. Since you both have 91 or newer YJ's, you should be able to just use the 4.0 engine harness. If I remember correctly, it is a plug and play to the 2.5 bulkhead connector, but you want to check it just to be sure. I got my harness at http://stores.ebay.com/alljeepparts401

This should make you wiring a whole lot easier and you wont have a rat's nest.

By the way, the reason that I had to get the whole harness is because I went from a carbed 4.2 to the 4.0. I had to redo my gauges to the newer style, basically the entire jeep. You guys are ahead of the game because you have the newer jeeps. Hope this helps.

Update: I just checked and he doesn't currently have a 4.0 engine harness listed, but check back in a couple of days and he should have one. You can also call them and see when he will have one. It made life so much easier for me when I did mine. I started by doing the "5 to Fire" process I found on line and ended up with a worse rats nest than you guys have.
Again, hope this helps.

Also curious if things worked out for Mrmark. My jeep is currently running sans speedo, but would love to just put in a stock 4.0 harness if it's really that simple.

I have been out of the loop as well. I like hearing success stories on these 4.0L swaps as that mine was a success as well.
