i recently bought an 82 cj7 from a guy
it allready had the glass body and a 350 under the hood.
only problem was that about a month later the steering shaft fell right off.
pulled it out to find that he had everything severely rigged.
so i pulled a new column and shaft off a cj at a junkyard and it worked out fine except not all the electrical connections fit the same. everything worked beutifully for a day then a connection wiggled lose and when i put it back the radio wasnt working tried following wires and cheked fuses but everthing looks good.
any one know anything??

82 cj7
fiberglass body
4" skyjacker lift, 2" body lift
moser heavy duty one peice rear end
33" bfg muddies

AH, the ever-popular Jeep Wiring Problem.

Personally, I would hook the radio up to a "constant-power" terminal in your fusebox and bypass the problem. It will save a lot of headaches. Seriously. If you have glass fuses, just use a flat tab connector on the end of the power wire and slip it between the metal fuse and and the clip on a constant power side of one of your fuses.
