Great project! Look forward to seeing the results.

Now that is cool, and as a bonus there is no back seat...

Well we decided it was time to work in the garage. We had to use a bottle to put gas in the carb through the fuel line. But it ran fine one we got it going. Then we got both of the seats mounted. I am having trouble finding a steering wheel adapter. Does anyone know if a golf cart one will work. A web site tried to sell me one. But I dont like to gamble on the web with stuff that "might" work.

Well if what I have seen so far is any indication...the three stooges must have worked on this jeep at one time or another. I am re-wiring everything. There is no fuse box anywhere. Just wires and switches. If there were to be a short it would burn down the jeep! I had to pull the tail light assemblies. I accidentally broke one of them. Moe or Curly used a crap load of silicone to glue them on! I have crazy glued the rim back together. I am glad this thing is so simple. But there are wires hanging underneath that are not hooked up to anything. I am glad I have done this before!

Rick, just a suggestion. as simple and as old as the Jeep is, it might be easier to build a wiring harness from scratch. or check Painless Wiring for a complete wiring harness if wiring isn't your forte.

i have built several wiring harness' from scratch several times in the past for old cars.

Check out our state of the art gas tank. The new seats are nice too. The gas tank is really just for testing purposes. I found a brand new CJ5 tank, skid plate and sending unit for a total of $191.00 including shipping to my door. It will cost me the ability to tow. But that is not something we intended to use it for anyway. It is only a 2.2 liter 4 banger.

That is actually what I am doing. That is why I am pulling all of the assemblies. I bought a bunch of wire and connectors at Autozone after work today. I am pulling all new wire and letting it hang out of the holes where all the lights go. I will reinstall everything only after I have tested everything to be sure it all works the way it should. I am going to put relays in for the headlights. Same thing with the horn. I picked up a service manual for it the other day. There is a detailed wiring diagram. But there are no wire colors listed! It is all in black and white. I am just using the color codes from my Blazer. I bought a 25 foot 4 wire strand that is supposed to be for wiring a trailer. But I am going to use it to wire the tail lights, brakes and turn signals in the front and the back. I got 12 gauge wire for the head lights. I ordered two 4 fuse-fuse boxes to run everything through. 8 fuses should be plenty for something that only has a radio, lights and a horn. I did the same thing with a 66 Chevy Pick-Up many years ago.
