Sweet Larry.

You almost have as much wiring in the gauges as I do under the hood

I guess I had that coming The diff is that each one of mine has a purpose. I still have to get in there and clean it up! My back hurts so bad when I have to bend over and work in there. For me it is a hard angle to work.

Edit: Rollbar's engine compartment:



And if that is not convincing, here's more; Rollbar's under dash!: he he!

Same, yes no? He's goina kill me!

On the mahogany steering wheel, I don't see any other wood in the CJ and think it would look out of place. Maybe a Grant Signature polished with black leather?


Your to late Jim, the wood wheel is on it's way. I have settled for a dark walnut finish. The wood look has to start some place, I guess this is it.

Larry, how did you hook up your fuel gauge, meaning, did you hook it up like stock (Red/Pink Wire) and did you get a new sender.

Thanks,
Jim

Do you have a stock 20gal plastic tank?

If so do you recall the sender part number /gauge?

Thanks,
Jim

I think I'm just going to go w/new but wondering if the pink wire is a direct line/wire to the sender?

Sorry Jim: I have a 34 gallon tank. Mine will do you no good.

My E-Fan controller came in today so I went to work installing it.Here are some pic's:





This is a Delta Current Control 2SP fan controller for a Taurus fan. It only cost $79 and comes as a sealed unit. $$$ well spent. Yes I can wire in a sw. to completely shut the fan off for fording deep water. For me that water would have to be deeeeeeeep. It automatically changes from low to high speed as needed. It also has a cool down cycle when the motor is shut off.
