Yeah I will try and snap a few tonight. The panel I'm using is a bit unique and it was something that I had laying around but I will get some pics for you.

Well felt good enough to get out there and finish my "electrical panel"/ ammo can top that I had laying around from the arm rest. I wanted something removable and to limit water from splashing up behind the dash when I spray out the interior. I was going to go get a nice piece of aluminum and just make it hinged in the back and latch up front but I ended up just using what I had.

Got the computer, relays, and wiring mounted up and tucked away. Tried to get it to fire up but ran in to starter issues. Going to get the starter rebuilt local and move on to something else in the meantime.

I'm running everything off of them. All lights. Turn, parking, headlights, high beams, rock lights, rear fog, front fog, work lights, winch in and out, ignition, and seat heaters. I probably forgot something so I'm putting 2 extra DPDT switches in their for future stuff.

well no progress. my truck is coming out the shop after getting a bunch of upgrades and needed work. lets just say I have no money for a little while to continue the willys. I do have some little stuff I can do that does not require parts but you wont be seeing any updates for some time. have some cool projects coming up planed for the willys though.

my life led me down a dark road and I am just coming out the other end. had some issues with alcoholism and been focused on sobriety. good news is I am 250 days sober and looking forward to 2015 wheeling. got big goals to be up in running by spring and be dialed in by fall for a possible trip to Moab. still no money but am about to put in some time at work to fix that...I still check the willys section regularly and have been a lurker for too long here as of late.

So took it to a "shop" and the quality of work they did was horrible. They basically ripped me off 4 grand and I took the willys back to Appalachian Offroad where the cage was done. Thanks to Mike and Kane the willys is running and driving. I took it out for a little wheeling in VA and found a few issues that need to be addressed but other than that it seams to work well. I could go in to detail about the shady shit the other "shop" did but it will just piss me off so I'm just going to post up some pictures of the first test run.
