Too vague Redo the wiring how? Are you looking to replace the whole harness with a new harness or repair what is there? What is wrong with what you have now?

One vote Centech, if you going to replace the harness. I put one in my 81 CJ7 back in the 90's. I parted that CJ out and and have the harness in my current CJ7 build.

+1 on centech. Quality product, though the instructions are terrible and the tech support is lacking.

My experience with Centech support has been very positive. I have called them twice in the last month asking questions on modifying their harness I bought over 20 years ago.

I have a 1980 CJ7 258 auto. My Frankinjeep's previous owner put a painless wiring harness. I wanted to remove it and replace it with a factory harness. On two different occasions I removed the painless harness to do major work on the tub, but ultimately I put the painless harness back in because it really was far superior to the factory harness. My only issue is despite a new neutral safety switch it will still start in drive and reverse

Regarding wiring, I installed a Howel fuel injection kit that was incorporated into the painless harness. Too much trouble with the ddb. Expensive but well worth it.
