Headlight wiring harness help

Thought replacing the stock lamps with the Sylvania silverstars would fix my dim Right headlight problem but turns out I've got a corroded wire on the harness (see pic). Where can I order a replacement harness online?

Anyone near Essex or Bergen county that can help me swap it out?

Would the local dealer likely have it in stock?

Just called a dealer and they told me it would need to be ordered from Milwaukee.

Now for the shocker.... $429! Hmm that doesn't seem right haha.

Got it. Can you tell I'm new to this? First Jeep and have become pretty attached considering I bought it as a winter "beater"

lol, it happens to aalot of people. I'm in no means a dedicated jeeper I just love the 4x4 sport in general and have owned some jeeps in my time. Theyre good vehicles all round and pretty simple to work on considering vehicles of the same era. Anything I can do to help I will.

Idk anyone off hand but im sure there might be, theres a few aftermarket companys that make them for fairly cheap. They tend to have extra wire but otherwise are good. i cant recall the name of the company but once I do ill post it for you.

Eautoworks makes the aftermarket harness. Im on my phone so I cany find my saved link for it.

That's for the DIY link. I still would prefer to just buy them. All the Eautoworks links I follow when searching this topic point to a missing product page. Prob because they updated the part.. If anyone can point me to the new one that would be much appreciated. Also on my phone at work.

Tried calling Eautoworks and got nowhere with the clueless phone rep.
