Post which is most difficult???

QUESTION: Which will be the most difficult task;
Mounting a new fiberglass tub...or...installing the wiring?

Should i just scrap it and get a Geo Tracker instead? or how about a Suzuki Samuri? Or maybe I should just have my friends beat me up for even joking about something like that.

1980 CJ7...304 Automatic...few mods. Edelbrock intake and 4bbl...headers. Nothing major...but it is a JEEP!

I replaced my body tub on my '79 CJ-5 several years ago and I have only mediate mechanical and very little electrical experience. Take your time and get a good Haynes and/or Chilton's manual and you should be able to handle it just fine.
I used my old wiring harness but if I had to do it again I would probably get a Painless Wiring Harness.
Good luck keep us informed,

Mounted my CJ-5 fiberglass tub in 87. It wasn't too hard, just time consuming. The wiring was easy though, I tore out all the useless stuff like heater, radio, keyed ignition, etc, and put in an aftermarket fuse panel, gages, and switch panel. If you are keeping all that stuff then I recommend a wiring harness from Painless.
