Custom Wiring Pics

Any of you rewire your whole jeep? Got pics? I just went to track down some electrical problems and it turns out I have no fuse panel at all. Just a tangled ball of wires. So while I would like to put in one of those fancy waterproof painless harnesses they are way more than I can spend now. I am planning to just get some wire and go for it. Any advice, pics, warnings or threats would be appreciated.

If you have absolutley no fuse panel (ie fuses in a panel) I would reccomend getting an OEM inside and outside wiring harness that sandwhiches through the firewall. If they are pre-labeled-continue using the factory wires for each application. If you need longer wire-try to splice the same color wire inline, solder and heat shrink it to the proper length. You can probably do the whole job for under $100, and you cannot beat the factory wiring fuse panel for fit-up.

i used a painless harness, ended up using the generic 12 circuit system, it was worth the $$. made rewiring the jeep a piece of cake

heep rewire

My fuse panel on my 5 was a painless when I bought it. I was never impressed with it, BUT THAT IS MOSTLY DUE TO THE PO NOT DOING A GOOD JOB INSTALLING. I patched it together for a while, but it finally had a meltdown. I was too cheap to shell out 4 bills for a panel/harness so I came up with this. The downside to building a complete harness from scratch is the time investment, it took about 60 hrs start to finish. It took so long because every connection was soldered and sealed with heat shrink. The up side is now I have an ALMOST waterproof system. a little tape and goop around the tupperware and I'm good to go. Another plus is I have no fear of repairing if necesary, and it was only about $200 for everything.

Check out http://www.ezwiring.com/

Their 21 circuit harness is a great value. I have one that I haven't installed yet. I couldn't tell the difference between the EZ and Painless Harness I had, when I placed both harnesses side-by-side on the bench.

I just rewired my entire CJ. I was going to build my own. Then I thought painless or summit. In the end I rebuilt the stock setup because the CJ fuse block and bulkhead fit to well. I will try to get some pics, but since I do wiring everyday I didn't mess with taking any.

Done this a couple times, last time I used this:

Lower cost than painless and still very well built, it is the same harness that I plan on using on my current project.
