Yes, I posted it awhile back, I'll see if I can dig it up.

Took some doing, but found it as it had rolled of my post list.

I was asked in a PM to draw a diagram of the wiring for my headlight relays.

I have tried, please do not laugh.

Any question please ask, if you see a mistake let me know.

I wired my headlights so that when my high beams are on the driving lights also come on, but you can over ride that and turn them off.

Use 12 gauge wire for all the high current wires, both the ground side and the hot side, connect ground and hot to battery feads.

I did not cut the stock headlight wiring harness, I used spade connectors inserted into the orignal headlight socket (and taped the wires inplace to make sure they do not vibrate loose), to pick up my signal for the relays. By doing this I laid my new harnes ontop of the original harness with no cutting or splicing. If I ever want to remove this harness it is a simple mater of unpluging.

I used a bus bar so there is only a singl connection at the battery and then all other connections are at the bus bar.

I used 6 gauge wire to run to the battery

Or even the Bantam T3C. The civilian version of the original WWII Jeep trailer. You can generally find them on Ebay and C/L. I got my '46 T3C on C/L.

This is the kinda whiny crap I would expect to see in the JK forum. We drive rough riding, leaking, gas guzzling CJ's. Rattle can it and throw it in your Jeep.

I had the exact same angle and got rid of it by doing a tie rod flip. There is no down side to it.

See this post http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f8/cj...l#post13369194 to see what it takes.

I will loan out the reamer, so you do not have to buy the tool, all you have to do is pay the shipping and insurance both ways for the tool (I think the small flat rate USPS bos is no 5.95 one way) so all you have to do is buy the inserts.

My web site has additional pictures

I also just did the front steering stabilizer shock (stock)

Ben-Hur made a nice trailer too that works well for CJ's.

Here's a pic of Patricks from the earlycj5 forum:

Changing the 4WD knob, changed the coolant reservoir, added two Crosby 6 1/2t shackles, added new turn signal side mounts and bulbs, looking for the right kind of gasket for the AMC Model 20 rear differential.

I have reliability issues with the D20 gaskets, so now I lay a huge bead of silicon sealer where the gasket should be and I don't have any more problems.
