So I started my rewire job today. I pulled all the wiring out from under the hood, except the aftermarket stuff like the ignition, dual battery setup, and winch. When I was pulling it all out I discovered a few things.
1. I have a windshield washer fluid tank and pump! I know that doesn't sound like an amazing discovery, but I never knew I had one. It was hidden under my dual battery tray. The PO must not have used it or for whatever reason covered it up. I have no clue if the pump works, but if it does I might try and hook it all back up. I'm not sure where the hose for the fluid hooks up to though on the cowl or wherever the nozzles are.
2. The dirt and grime under my Jeep is some wicked stuff. I think NASA should look into it as a new type of heat shield or something. It took me at least 10 minutes to wash most of it off using LAVA soap, and I still haven't gotten it all. Its amazing I tells ya!
3. All of the wiring going to any light source on my Jeep has melted the insulation away and then melted the wire loom it goes through. Thankfully it didn't do too much more damage than that, although that is quite a bit of damage.
Thats about all I've discoverd so far, other than wiring is kinda a pain. I've attached a pictures of how my engine compartment looked before I started the work, and when I finish I'll post an after picture. I'm hoping to clean it up a bunch and make it nice to look at, although looks aren't everything. I also attached a picture of some of the charred wiring near the headlight switch. The switch shorted out and burned/melted everything around it.
