where to find the connector for air intake assembly

I broke my connector yesterday for the air intake assembly. Any one know where to find one. Advance auto could not locate it in any catalog. Below is a picture of where it goes above the box with the heater core and blower motor. It is brown (and I am pretty sure my wife threw it away)

Why not just use terminal ends, in place of the plug?

Lol.... No prob!

I do the same thing. Mind jumps to the worst possibility when it's usually something simple.

Good luck!

If you want that OEM look, you could wrap it with ducktape.

I wondered this when I took apart the heater box assembly but can someone explain to for my simple mind how the CJ uses this electrical connection? Mine is plugged in but I just can't figure out what the point of it is or what it measures.

It is the blower motor speed resistor. They put it in the duct to keep it cool.

The resistors slow the blower speed.
