Hey thanks everyone. I have been out of town few days for work. Just got to dig back into it. I got the body bolted down picked up all parts I needed from a guy for 250. Had a local place we work with alot install windshield cheap less hundred bucks. Im sure they will make it up from me later. I just started digging into the wiring got it to where it will crank over. just need to finish sorting it all out. I need to take some pics of the wires that I cant fig out. Will have to do this weekend. I am almost thinking of gutting the computer control and installing a hei dist. Alot less wires and maybe less vacum line. But I also dont want to spend alot of cash on it untill I make sure it runs. I will try and get some pics soon. Thanks

I tried to click on links and they dont seem to work. It always redirects me 404 page not found. Not your link but the links in the other post.

It does have all cj wiring. Al least from what i can tell. The only thing that is yj is the harness to the tail light and what ever else is in the rear of the tub. I have another delima what color to go with I already have black and silver paint. The wife would like red,but it also is one of the more expensive colors. I was thinking of painting all trim pieces black and painting the body silver. Paint the top black and maybe trade it off to a soft top.

Depending on the year of the YJ tub will determine what wire does what.
We know there is one wire each for the tail, and back up lights, and 2 for the brake/ signal lights. There should also be one for the fuel gauge. There will also be 2 more for the dome light and rear wiper( if its new enough)
The easiest way to find what is what is to run a wire from the postive battery terminal to the YJ wires. Then (if the tub is grounded (12volts negative) touch each wire and see what lights up. Right down the color and what lights came on, on a piece of paper. Then connect them to the CJ wiring.

I started to work on my cj, but its cold in Ohio. I don't have a spot in my garage for it yet. Hopefully it warms up this week some. I still would like to thank every one so far for the help.
