Well, I finally completed the new rear wiring assembly. I built a new one (from the firewall back) that feeds the dome light, fuel sensor, brake lights, turn signals, hazard lights, reverse lights, and a good solid ground. I used some waterproof Tyco Electronics (TE) connectors, 16AWG stranded hookup wire, and Painless 1/2" power braid to tidy it all up.
A three-position TE connector. Everything was crimped, soldered, and heat shrunk where applicable.
I also ran an 8AWG OFC cable from the negative terminal on the battery to a terminal block located under the left wheel well to supply a good ground source to any accessories I hook up in the rear.
Here's a shot of the cable that runs up under the gas tank that feeds the right tail light assembly.
The left tail light with the Kentrol stainless license plate holder.
I used Rugged Ridge LED Tail Lights from Quadratec
. Also, the new gas tank and fuel sender (with accoutrements) is piled in those boxes in the back.....my next project.
I also finally got around to putting the steering wheel back on.
And the DD dash looks rally nice. It looks nicer in the dark with all the instruments lit up.
And here's my little shame. He just came back from an operation and he has to wear the cone-of-shame for ten days. He's the sad dog...or at least he thinks he is.
