Can anyone else elaborate on this or correct me ?
Sounds good to me! Thanks!

Today I retired it from DD duty. I picked up a beater 93' Saturn that will now take on that responsibility.

My CJ fixed it's fuel issue on its own. So in return, I fixed the tail light and blinker issue. Did you know putting the tail light bulbs in backwards can cause all kinds of issues?

New exhaust system. Sounds great and with the proper diameter pipes it seems to run better. Now what to do with the rest of the insurance money. Hhmm....

Custom wiring panel

Last night I attached the 7 pin power block, 7 manual reset circut breakers, and 5 relays to my custom wiring panel that will install at the top of the firewall on the engine side. Looks good to me. Over the weekend I hope to get it on the firewall and get started on hooking up all the wires.
