I'm in the Conroe area. I just moved here recently so I'm still trying to get accustomed to the area.

I'm up for a meet up of some kind soon. Don't care if it's to just grab drinks or to go out in the woods.

I am in The Woodlands as well. I don't actually get my jeep for about another 5 weeks though. But once I get it, look out world. Already have a stack of parts to upgrade.

A self proclaimed newb making my way thru the world of Wrangler. I live in The Woodlands and looking for some help. Just bought an '89 YJ and need to replace the wiring harness. The engine bay is convoluted with miles of wiring, splices everywhere, wrong gauge wires and causing problems. Driving to work last week and the alternator wire melted along with a number of others. I'm pretty sure there was a bad ground from the battery. Somewhere along the way, it found a ground sent a surge thru the whole Jeep and fried everything it didn't like. Problem is I can't trace everything to find the short. Rewired the alternator with proper gauge and reconfigured the dual battery set up but no power is getting to the fuel pump. Again, I can't find the short. Decided to rip out the old harness and replace with a Painless Wiring Harness #10111. Was pretty spendy but I think it's the right move. Wiring lights and radios I've done before, but nothing close to the extent of a whole new harness. I'm looking to see if anyone in the Houston/Spring area might be willing and up to the task of tackling this with me. I've got quotes from a few shops and just trying to weigh my options. Will certainly pay for help. I'm really trying to do this myself because learning the how to's is why I bought it. If anyone may be interested in making some cash and helping me out, send me a PM and let's see if we can get to work.

I have to rewire my headlight as well but i keep putting it off haha. The wiring frayed away from the connector so its not getting the juice it should. Its no way near as bad as what youre talking about though. Ive always hated running wires and that crap but hopefully you can get it together.

I just have no experience with an undertaking of this magnitude of a rewire. And I don't want to screw it up putting myself back in the same situation I find myself in now. Being the reason I'm reaching out and hoping someone might want to make some extra cash and lend an experienced hand. I'm fully prepared for the trial and error that comes with learning the ins and outs. But the electrical is not something I'm willing to risk. So if it ends up that I pull the trigger with the shop doing it, so be it. Good part about that is they'll let me help. Flip side being it's going to cost a putt load of dollars. Feel better about spending the money on someone who will do it with me. But at a point, it is what it is. At least I'll be helping.

I have a little knowledge in running wires but not enough that i'd trust myself running yours correctly if you know what i mean. I mean sure, i'll play around with mine, but i wouldnt want to mess with somebody elses rig and mess it up by mistake. If you can manage to find a few people to come do it, i'll be more than happy to come help.

I hear ya. That's the same boat I'm in. If you know anyone else that may want to huddle up and take a swing at it, let me know. Certainly willing to pay and take a bit of time to do it. Got the wiring harness today. Just need to let the shop know what I'm doing.

Yea. I know there are a few members around here, but i don't know any that have experience building jeeps. Most are fairly new to the jeep community.
