Re: Radio wirng 86 cj7
First off I'm gonna say you should follow the directions that come with the radio you buy.
Secondly I'm by no means a radio installer but you should have no problem wiring the first two items into your fuse box. Make sure you put them on a properly rated fuse...not too big and not too small. If need be buy a secondary fuse panel, wire it into the main and get the correct amperage fuses you need.
As for the illumination lead, I'd wire that into the dash lights. You want the radio to dim when you dim the dash lights. Thats the whole point of the illumination lead. If you didn't want it to ever dim then wire it into the fuse panel. But if you do want it to dim you'll have to wire it in after the headlight switch.
