Re: need help wiring 75CJ glass body

I've done a 76. What are your questions? Body was second hand so no instructions included. The key is to run a nice fat ground wire from the battery through the firewall and tie all your electrics into it. I believe all of your gauges and stuff have ground wires but they were probally ground to the dash, firewall, etc. I just ran wires from any old grounding area directly to the battery. Make sure its one thick enough to handle the juice.

Re: need help wiring 75CJ glass body

Just a sidenote, ground the fuel gauge sending unit directly to the frame by itself so it will work correctly. Do not tie it in with the tail lights, it will do wierd things. Each tail light should have its own ground, so one does not effect the other. Take your time, keep it simple. Good luck!
