We should be careful when discussing kill switches, locations and examples in a public forum. Just a thought.

I am very careful. I do have a very very good kill switch setup. As you stated, discussing the need and the specifics are 2 different things.

Owning a 5-speed these days eliminates 85% of the punk joy riders. But ya.. keep your kill switches a secret. Or do like I did: label a toggle on the dash "Kill Switch" and rig it to blast a PA horn when switched off.

The doberman, Rex, holds them while I aim. No issues yet, but I need to invest in a backhoe.

Were always having holes dug to test/repair gas lines, give me a call if you need one.

Electrical used to kinda scare me too. One day, a buddy who is good at it said, " think of electrical like plumbing - that can kill you. ".

Just a follow up, I wired my kill switch. I found the ground wire for the fuel pump attached to the passenger side engine block by the dip stick, not by the emergency brake as many of you have. The wires run over the TC case and down the driver side rail to the gas tank. On mine the ground was brown or dark green with a yellow stripe. Thanks all for the heads up, I would have put the switch on the hot wire if not corrected by you to use the ground. I put my switch.....well let's just say I can flip it on or off wÓthout giving it away and pretty darn hard to even see.

I looked at both the plate up under and the actual e-brake. I did see an orange black near the e-brake pedal going to what seemed to be a relay, but didn't see it attaching to either for a ground.

Am I missing my 1991 fuel pump ground somewhere here? The red arrow points to the orange black going into some relay.

Under the Jeep: no wires that I saw


E-brake:

The ground on the "e-brake frame" he was talking about is inside the cab, just above the e-brake pedal, along the door opening.

There has to be wires coming from your fuel tank, look on the inside frame rail.

The orange black was my hot wire to the pump. I opened up the wire cover along the frame rail going to the fuel tank. I had three wires, the orange/black hot to pump, the dark green/yellow as ground and a tan wire which I assume is the fuel gage. Follow those wires and see where they go, mine crossed over the TC where the ground wire came out by the firewall and attached to the engine block. If yours goes all the way up the driver side it may be like those who's ground is on the E brake bracket.
