What he said. I'm in the process of doing a rewire and have run dedicated grounds to my front (for headlights), my dash (for gauges, etc) and to the rear (for taillights and fuel sender).
This way I know my grounds are good - I've learned that a bad ground is the biggest culprit for electrical issues in a CJ.
