Last friday, I bought a 1978 cj7, 304, lift, etc.
It runs fine and has plenty of shiny new stuff, but the wiring isn't one of the new things. It appears as though somebody pulled it all out, and fed it to a bear, then put the broken remains back in the car. Most of the stuff that counts still works, but no guages/interior lights/etc. but I'll deal with that for now.
I made a seperate circuit with a fuse and switch for the second fuel pump in attemt to take off some load (since so much of it is broken, things are doubled/tripled/etc. onto the same fuse) so everything will continue to function enough to be safe until I buy a new harness
Should I just make a whole harness or buy one?
I'm not opposed to buying one, but if you guys come up with major reasons to make my own then I will.
Which is the best to buy?
I'll put up a pic later so you can all see the jungle exhibit under the dash.
Earlier I was thinking about just making my own wiring for everything but the normal driving lights and just get a simple harness for the lights-- It could be beneficial to have everything separated out like that.
Also-- what do you guys think of this-- My glove box is just the metal flap over a hole where the box used to be, so I'm thinking I'm going to put the fuse block in there for easy access-- I'll figure something out for storage like under the back seat or something.
