Didnt realize the trans was such a pita to pull out on this car. Gotta remove the entire front a-frame, sway bar; etc. Picked up a new clutch, so hopefully the pyp tranny works. ALOT of work getting it in there. Atleast this gives me a reason to Get the new struts in and finish putting in the lowering kit.

Yup that it is. I needed something that I could take to job sites and had more room inside.

Wired up the light bar and switches:
wiring's not as bad as it looks. stock wiring keeps getting in the way...:

the wires will be strapped down to those white squares:

silliconed the cargo light shut after running the wires through:

The switch was originally on a shift knob, so I cut the wires, resoldered them and mounted the whole shebang in my dash...:


Gratuitous interior shot:

I had fun wiring the lights on the jeep. 4 lights x 150watt bulbs = 600watts and X amount of amps made me go thru 3 alternators. I had something like 180amps in lights on the Jeep. Atleast you used relays, but sure to fuck up first time you submerge the truck.
