Towed it down to a job I had in Idaho with plans of going to moab afterwards. Turns out it doesn't like the heat. New t-stat, rad cap, fluid didn't help. Figure the tripple fans aren't pulling enough air? So here shortly I'll go back to a mechanical fan. As of now it's gutted and I'm thinning out a new wiring harness. Something I've wanted to do for the last 5 years or more but have been dreading. Fixed the heater core metal on the fire wall for 97+, put on the tranny computer bracket as well as c200 bracket. If all goes well things should be a lot cleaner. Also put on a oem firewall mat, hopefully that'll quite things down and keep some heat out of the cab.

Wiring is complete. Everything is soddered and shrink wrapped, tallights/haz/running lights all work as they should. Oem dash sound barrier put back in. I now have keyless entry and a dome light. Temporarily fixing some left over water leaks after seam sealing the back of th cab, now the glass is leaking. Well see how long silicone holds up. Hopefully I'll get the interior in tonight and tomorrow some new goodies show up. Next step is tackling the mechanical fan. Since the wj fan is ran off the water pump, it's smack in the middle of the radiator. So I have to make a diy shroud. Currently running a 95 Dakota fan clutch since the wj one wobbled and was loud

This is what the po's rear harness was with some trailer brake controller grafted in. Next time this goes up for sale the price is going to be quite a bit more.

Got a decent start on the shroud. Need to enclose/secure the bottom and then I'll see if it'll work

After 8 years of no cruise control and intermittent crappy idle I robbed a clock spring from a spare xj and all is good now. Ended going for about a 200 mile spur of the moment road test up to Naches trail where once on top I realized I was nearly our of fuel. Hopped on a main logging road and ended up coasting about 15 miles down. Cruise works great, no idle issue and coming up the pass on the way home everything stayed cool. Still need a little work on the shroud for low speed cooling.

I use to have to compreesor/locker switches up in the dash vent, after the re-wire I just left it out since it was a pain and I didn't like to crappy wiring the spec fab did. Today I atleast wired up the compressor to the rear defogger switch. I plan on trying to add a diode or something and using the same switch for the locker but for the time being I'm content since I use the air much more than the locker
