wirring manual

Hi Guys...

well my cj8 is driving me nuts... turns out the big ticket items are the eaisest to deal with, its the small things that are causing me stress.
I got a new engine,
removed the old body lift,
solved the old leaky top problem...

BUT every time i turn around i have some wirring problem. I think the PO cut into every wire they could.

I need a good manual with good wirring diagrams and good system overviews.
I have the haynes manuls now its soso, find there is to much covering every other years, gets confusing.

what manuals do you guys suggest?

scott in vancouver.

There are some decent digrams floating around the 'net.

However, I was in your shoes not long ago, and realized that the best fix was to start from scratch. I rewired it with a Painless kit, but there are others out there that other people like. While the kit is not cheap, you can do it in a weekend, and eliminate all of of your electrical problems. Everything will be cleaned up and neat, you will know where every wire goes, and you will have the security of knowing everything electrical is going to work.

Go to your local library. You can find high quality, multi-page fold-out wiring diagrams in the reference section.

The year specific Jeep Technical Service Manual is your best resourse for the wiring diagram and all other service related issues. If I had only one resourse it would be the year specific technical service manual. I found mine on Ebay a long time ago.

Autozone online also has some wiring diagrams as well. If you have some specific questions, post them up and many will be able to help you out.

I got my FSM on ebay as well for about $60 or so. Keep your eye out, they are on there often.
