/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif Mikey, Mikey, Mikey......your Jeep is pleading with you to restore the ground straps that connect the battery to the engine-the engine to the tub- the tub to the frame...well, you get the idea. Your three Jeeps are not linked negatively. That is the tub Jeep, and the frame Jeep, and the engine Jeep aren't intimate. They need a good grounding system, one to the other./wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif

I sounds like a voltage problem to me. (do you have a volt meter?) i fixed a stereo that would shut off when you hit the brake, they had the stereo power wire spliced into the switch coming off the back of the brake pedal, (some brake lights have no relay and are wired straight to the battery, if something else is wired with them, the voltage will drop when you hit the brake)

The tach and guages get their ground from a black wire with a tan stripe that is attatched to the block at the same point as the battery cable. It's pretty common for the wire to be loose in the terminal end or the nut to be loose that retains it to the block. I'd check there first.
