Re-Wire my Jeep

I am curious as to how easy/difficult a project it would be to redo all the wiring on my Jeep. The "Painless Wiring Harness" would be perfect except I cannot afford it. Is it much more affordable to do it myself and endure the "pain"? I really want to get rid of all the wiring for the A/C and remove all my A/C ducts since it doesn't work anyways. My buddy is decent at vehicle wiring and I have testers and whatnot. Just never really gotten too deep into vehicle electronics.

All I want is the wiring to make the engine run (sensors and whatnot), Gauges to work, and Lights/Wipers.

Before I started taking the wires out I would trace them to see if I could find the main problem. So from what you said you can't get anything to work?

If the current harness is not cut then I wouldnt rewire. Just repair what you have. Jeep wiring is very simple. What condition is the wiring in? What is wrong with the Jeep.

actually nothing is wrong with the Jeep. It runs pretty well. I just have a major rats nest under the dash and wanted to clean it all up. I guess I could try and just organize and trace what I have.

I just did the rewire on my 90 wrangler and used the painless harness. It made a difficult job much easier and it still took me 2-3 days to get it done. Now I have a lot better knowledge of the wiring and no more gremlins. Definitely worth it to me. It eliminates all of the computer wiring so you will need a webber or mc2100 and mine came wired for a fuel pump at the fuel guage wiring which was easy to fix at the plug. It also has connections for future upgrades like a fuel pump, electrical cooling fan, and rear wipers.
