I can only view the first 17 seconds of the video, but after doing so I have to admit that I dearly hope that the device on the roll bar is a T-shirt cannon.

This is the part where I get to be all mysterious and stuff...

Today's Jeeping: I'm unexpectedly not working, so I think I'm going to do a bit more wire tracing. I sent a copy of the wiring section of my FSM - and that's something that everyone should have, because it seriously helps stupid plans like this one - to my friend Ryan because he knows far more about electrical schtuff than I do, and as it turns out the wiring for the lockers runs through the C104 connector on the firewall, which should make finding the wires a good deal easier. For anyone that's interested:

Rear locker red wire with white stripe
Circuit number A850
18 gauge wire
Pin #4 on C104 connector

Front locker tan wire with red stripe
Circuit number A750
18 gauge wire
Pin #7 on C104 connector

Since those wires are on the chassis side of the C104 they should be the switched/relayed power leads to the compressors themselves, and it shouldn't be terribly difficult to cut into the main harness on that side of the connector and thus negate the long run of wiring that's left in the harness after the compressor relocation. Actually removing the extra wiring will be a complete pain in the a**, but if I go about it this way I should be able to keep all of the compressor wiring within the engine bay itself; the only lines that will run under the chassis are the sensor wires (which haven't been modified yet) and the air lines, and that should make for a very clean installation...and that makes me happy. When that's done I can start looking at what it will take to upgrade - upgrayedd - the main power and ground wires to Wasteland-capable levels, and that will in turn allow me to make a few lighting and communication improvements...and by that time I just might have enough money saved to do the tummy tuck.

Progress is good! Wish I was having the same luck with aerosol application and poor lighting!

AND...I may just get in some seat time, soon. I need all the driving practice I can get.

The compressors are wired up and working, I just don't like the cobbled-together nature of the current arrangement. Now that I know which wires do what, it's a relatively simple matter of cutting into the main harness, extracting the wires that are needed, and redirecting them over to the new compressor location; that's the "clean" install that I was going for.

I'm debating on deleting the in-line connections that lead to the locker sensors; any thoughts? It would be nice to get rid of a highly-exposed dirt/water/funk intrusion point...
