    Well, we're back... updates will be coming as I continue to make silly mods to this Jeep. Oh yeah, and we got a trailer.

    In case anyone wondered why the hiatus from here with the Jeep, it's really because I was just driving it. This has been my daily driver and I have put 22k miles on it over the past few years and run a lot of trails with it. As you can imagine, that causes some significant wear on a Jeep like this and now it's time to come back on here where I can document fixing it all. I broke down and bought a second vehicle, so I can take some time to wrap up some bigger prjects on the Jeep.

    I'm pretty proud of the fact that I am wearing through the steel pedals, haha. 66687815_355788618652211_874285728912113664_n.jpg

    Not wasting any time: out comes the electrical and it's time to rewire.

    I spent far too long trying to figure out where to put these gauges so that they were hidden from view.

    The back of the glove box it is. I like it.

    Jeep is rewired now, just need some tubing and grommets to cover/protect the wires. All water resistant marine fittings and I got rid of all the random grounding points throughout the Jeep. Everything is grounded on one of four grounded bus bars on the Jeep. Keeps things much cleaner. wiring.jpg
