A good friend of mine has a 2006 TJ that needed some serious attention to ALL of the wiring to all his aftermarket accessories. Mainly high powered CB, All of the KC lights, & it needed the wiring harness from the alternator to the battery/fuse box upgraded

Since I do custom automotive wiring & electrical as a side business, we traded favor for favor & I rewired his Jeep for him. This isn't a write up, but I thought I would share some before & after pics to show off some of my work. The overall look of what I did didn't turn out as good as I had wanted, but I guarantee every bit of his wiring is 100% correct along with being completely water & vibration proof now. It definitely wasn't before.

I ended up having to replace 90% of the wiring. Every connection was properly tinned, soldered, & sealed with industrial grade heat shrink.

Also made a custom bracket to add a spare fuse block for accessories.

Ran all the wiring through the firewall into the cowl, then out of the cowl cover.

Here are some pics of the finished product, almost anyway, forgot to take pics of the finished product inside the cowl & after I finished installing the rest of the wire loom.

I forgot to take a pic, but made a custom harness & ran 4 awg cable from the alternator to the battery & fuse box.

Originally, someone had only run 10 awg wire from the alternator

Thought I would add, the KC lights only had 18 awg wire run to them as well

I ran 12 & 14 awg wire to all circuits just to make sure they don't heat up. The 18 awg wires I removed had gotten pretty toasty.

The 10 awg wire that was running from the alternator had roasted a little too
