Where to send the Harness???

I saw in a 4.0 swap write up that the guy sent the donor and the harness from the CJ that was getting the new engine out to a shop to get it done I have e-mailed him to find out where he sent it, but with no reply I'm asking if anybody here would know anything about a shop like this and where it's at. An e-mail address would be great or a web page address would be better.

Thanks to all

I know you can get a harness from Hesco
I've never heard of an outfit taking your old harness and upgrading it ...

Re: Where to send the Harness???

I wouldnt even think of using the old harness. The wires are old and brittle. If you take the time to take the old one out, send it away, have it outfitted, and then reinstall it. A new harness could be installed and you would have all new wiring. If you still want to have it outfitted i would just call painless or one of those other companys. I am sure that they will do it.

Re: Where to send the Harness???

I called around some time ago, and nobody wanted to do this. It wouldn't be up to their standards (as far as quality). Also it's easier to just make a new harness versus trying to figure out the old one...it would cost less than the old reworked harness due mainly to the labor costs...

Hmmmmmm... I think I saw the same site you are refering to...I also asked the author how much he spent, and it was shockingly expensive. I think it was well over $300.
I am going this route, swapping a 2000 4.0 into my wife's Scrambler, and after checking out http://www..rockcrawler.com/techreports/yj40l_swap/ and some other sites I have decided I can probably figure it out and do the work myself.
