Well the wiring harness has all been installed and I tied it into my stock wiring so now I even get illumination on the switch when I turn on the actual lights at night
Took my a little while running the wire inside the jeep since I wanted to make it look clean and stock as possible. I did however mount the relay in the engine bay on the side I velclored it which I'll get pics of to show where exactly I mounted it.
One issue I'm not sure is that the relay I got well its open on the bottom like every relay so now I dont know how I'll close it off to prevent water or other stuff getting in there? Maybe some of you guys have ideas!
I'm gonna leave the defrost out for now and maybe do that at another time for a project, I left a wire going to the back for it there so its there I would just need to wire up a switch (which i also have).
There is a few pictures below, ill get some more of the actual relay mount as well I placed that black grommet (stuff that fog light wires are concealed with) looking stuff over the wires in the engine compartment as it started to look like a rainbow in there with all kinds of wires.
Well it's been a while since I posted here but the Jeep is currently still in winter storage for another month and a half at least. I was cleaning out my albums and came across some more pictures of the stuff so I figured I would just put it.
Here is a shot from the rocker guards.
After a few hours of trying to get the nutserts to work and finally installing them
what did you do for the wiring harness? Did you make your own, or did you modify an 03-06 one to work with you 97? And, where did you buy it?
I ended up getting the harness from a 98 Tj, and the connector came from a 03 dodge caravan (hard top was from a 06) power seat plug.
Basically I just did my own wiring instead of splicing into the existing wires, ended up using the wires from the harness and because they were the perfect length. Had a relay in there and found a stock wiper switch. I never put in the washing capability or the defrost just the wiper run. Wiper runs and once turned off returns back to the starting position.

So I haven't done a whole lot to the jeep but I did end up getting shocks/springs from a 06 rubicon so hopefully within the next few weeks swap in those with a 1" coil spacer also all around. The springs are 129AB and 106AA, hopefully make a difference with the 208,xxx km that are currently on mine.
Here is a picture of the gear, still waiting on the coils spacers to come in. I am a bit worried about the rear shocks with some of the reading I have been doing and how stupid they are engineering at the top..
Also this past weekend I took my light bar and modified it in order to fit winch on the stock bumper when the time comes. Ended re-fabing it, cant take pictures as it has been pouring for the past few days but hopefully I'll get out here in the next couple of days and take some pics. Raised the bar about 4-3/4" or so.
Here is a current picture of the jeep I took while at work the other day as it was parked
