Unfortunately, they are not even close.

Just pages 4,5 and 6 covers the CJs with the I6 and V8 engines.

Page 4 is the wiring diagram
Page 5 are the accessories
Page 6 is the guide to locate the section on the schematic.

Looks like page 4 has a tear in it and didn't scan correctly so beware of how the wires run.

You will have to mentally shift the wires a little to the left in these areas...

Thanks for the help.. I was able to trace my headlight problem to a faulty dimmer switch.

It was said that starting a list would be a good idea to help manage my build. So here is the first attempt.

The first goal is to get it to pass inspection for titling and registration. So...

Working headlights
Working tail lights
Working blinkers
New windshield
Reinstall wiper motor and wipers
Working horn

I'm going to start trouble shooting the list above this weekend. I had a question though. When the light switch is pulled out fully what lights should be on? Both headlights, the small yellow fog/running lights on the front, the yellow lights on the fenders, and the tail lights, correct?

All lights should be on with the headlight switch is fully pulled out. Fog lights had their own switch and they were mounted on the bumper but would not illuminate unless the headlight switch was on first.

Fog lights should be wired to the low beam side of the dimmer switch and to a manual switch. You don't need them when you have your high beams on. Connect the driving lights to the high beam side as well as a manual switch.

I have my parking lights wired to come on with the headlights. My logic is that in periods of low light I want as much visibility possibility. Amber light bulbs are necessary for turn signals behind clear lenses.

Alright I need some help. I'm banging my head against the wall here and I'm sure I'm missing something dumb.

I cannot get the amber lights in the front or the taillights to come on. The headlights work fine both regular and high beams.

I have replaced the headlight switch and have the same results. I have decided to concentrate on the front amber light and attack the tail lights next.

In the picture attached, if I put 12v on the white wire both amber lights come on. In the other picture if I put 12v on the 5amp fuse nothing happens. I'm assuming that the 5 amp fuse is where the power should be coming from.

What am I missing? I am assuming the headlight switch puts 12v through the 5amp fuse through the white wire to the bulbs. Is this not the correct circuit? I dont know why I'm not getting voltage to the 5 amp fuse.

Please help

Make sure the turn signal housings are mounted properly to the grill. They ground to the grill thru a special shouldered screw.

Thanks for the help Matt. I can get them to turn on if I put the 12v+ to the wire pictured, so I'm not sure it's a grounding issue. I just cant figure out why I cant get power to that wire....I'm not sure which fuse it's supposed to be coming through so I'm having trouble figuring out how to test it further.

IIRC, the headlight circuit has no fuse, just a built-in breaker at the switch.

The turn signal powers thru the 15 amp fuse labeled "Turn" or "T/S".

Ahhh thanks...I think I'm testing the wrong circuit. The power should come from the headlight switch to the fuse correct.
