I'm not sure you can complete that in two days start to finish, but let us know how it's coming along!

I'm wiring everything. The Jeep has had half it's electrical systems torn out and has cut wires and grounding issues everywhere thanks to the 350 and glass body. Plus I need to wire up all my new Autometers and dash switches.

It's easier to simply build a harness instead of tracing each issue. Plus I can add in things I want like a 60 amp circuit for an electric fan, headlights on relays, and wiring for additional lights.

Yup, it's going to be a daily driver for the most part. Needs to be bombproof.

Where's the fun in buying a harness? I considered it but voted it down because they are about 5x the cost of materials I've spent so far and I'd have to cut it apart anyway because of the 350.

Yeah...but at least I got a start so far

All the wires are mapped, labeled, and have been removed from the fuseblock. Blades from the block are soaking in contact cleaner right now.

The plugs and socket are all the same as GM uses in things like full sized vans and such that don't see weather. I got a harness from a van and used all the pigtail ends of the plugs (plug with 6" of wire, used solder and weatherproof heat shrink) to solder in for almost new plugs and sockets. They are easy to find at wreckers. Just a thought for you. That lasted me 10 years in the rust belt, then I went with a Centech harness because there was no copper left in the old one to solder to.
