Painless Wiring Harness

I think its time to bite the bullet and stop trying to figure out where my issues are with my old harness I tried to salvage.

The cheapest ive found the full harness (part 10110) is $600. Anyone know of anywhere with a deal going on or where I can find one cheaper?

Thank you

I just did a Painless kit. 10110. Nice product, but as you see rather pricey. Since I have all 'glass I think the Centech might have been better for me. I MAY have gone overboard w/adding ground wires, but that seems to be about 70% of all problems us owners face.
If you can, download either companies installation instructions and READ them until you almost have them memorized. Then it's just 1 section at a time, so don't be intimidated.
Good luck, and let us know how you make out.

So reading from the description, this centech kit is like the painless kit, in that it has all the wires labelled and ready to "plug and play?"

Yes. Mine even came with preterminated ends all done in nice weather proof heatshrink. The don't include vehicle specific parts like the ICM to distributor wires, but give instructions on how to hook them up.

Awesome. I just talked to the guy at centech and he was very helpful. I hope I dont regret going with this one over the painless, but the $250 savings is huge at this part of my restoration.

I got a painless10110 kit from www.knowwhere2jeep.com
Shipped to my door it was $580


I'm a rookie at all things electrical and tried the EZ wiring non terminated harness.

My advice is go with the painless and spend the extra money. It is worth your time if you are not an expert electrician or want to spend countless hours trying to figure it all out. It took less time and only had to terminate a few wires.

You get what you pay for. Just my 2 cents

My Jeep came with a painless kit installed.......has made working on anything a Joy....never knew labeled wires made such a difference.....

I would say any quality kit, with quality wires, labeled wires and good instructions should work well......

2 cents,

Unless your harness it complete toast, I recommend buying these crimpers and correcting what you have.

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/pnx-t3001

600 is a lot of money.
All of the barrel crimp connectors are available

http://terminalsupplyco.com/Store/De...228#Categories

and i found an Awesome diagram via ebay.

http://stores.ebay.com/Prosperos-Wir..._fsub=17732489


Now all of my wires are the correct length and cleanly installed. It is a lot easier than it appears

The diagram almost makes it like cheating. Hope this helps

Chris
