Take a look at aerocatch, I installed them on my jeep and really like the flush mount look.

Those are sweet. I'm going to look into those to replace my hood pins. You could probably even mount these on the side of the hood over the stock latch recess. Wish I would have known that about a year ago.

i am definitely going to look into these as well. thanks for sharing. $75 for a clean, dependable hood latching system is well worth a little google/youtube time.

these would look pretty sweet on dumpster.

Aw4 harness is almost complete. I cannot remember where I downloaded the wire diagram, but it would be almost impossible to do without it. I will have pictures and a write up tomorrow.

Here we go guys, we finished the harness today all but attaching it to the Jeep.

Standard parts needed to do the harness. Black trans plug, Gray Trans plug, and TCU.


Start out by figuring out the wires that just get connected back to the gray and black plugs. Should be all but 12.

Then solder the splice wires to the TCU. I tried to stay with the proper colors. I salvaged enough wire from a junk harness to get almost all the right colors with marker stripes to do the Job.



Necessary tools required to do the Job.



Finished product.



Still need to transfer the harness from the electric shift selector thingy over to the good selector thingy.



Thats about it. I am just about over this stupid cold. Maybe I can get some real work done next week.

Those heatshrink clamps are pretty cool. Just a bit of a hassle when you need to pull the hose of on the trail

Got the tail light harness built tonight, looks like I will try to finish the driver flare tomorrow night. Then move on to installing the AW4 harness and front turn signal wiring also. Should be able to wrap up the brakes lines by the weekend. Sorry no pictures till I have something worthy of pictures. Ummm like an empty garage.
