yeah i know there are harnesses around. I was going vertec at first but didnt... as to ease for right now! Check out Pirate4x4's jeep section, there are 1000s of write ups. (warning on posts- READ THE NEWBIE STUFF FIRST)

I think painless wiring makes a harness.
I know ive seen couple others...

The engine harness is independent of your Jeep's body harness, so there is no "adapting" to what you have now.

Decide which engine you're going to put in, then figure out the details.

P.S. the wiring is the easy part
