Got all the factory & accessory wiring back into place.
Couple of NOS gauges, I want to make sure everything work's for long time.
Installing the BTB metal dash pad lockable storage.
They cut 3/4" holes that fit over dash bolts.
I decided to put 1/4 x 1" fender washers on the dash bolts so it would be mounted stronger.
All their mounting holes lined up perfectly
My hand too big to get dash bolts in so my helper installing:
That Minn Kota unit should be good and weather/water resistant.
I keep a couple of red tops on the $20 Schumacher maintainers and they do the job. Don't have the actual charger "on board" so to speak. I leave a pigtail on the battery and when I pull in to park I plug the tender into the pigtail.
I have couple of the Schumacher maintainers, they don't say they are correct for AMG batteries, so I can only assume they're not.
Went ahead and ordered the MinnKota charger, as it's labeled for AMG & Gel.
Streamlight flashlight charger mounted in BTB dash storage box.
Got steering column installed and wired it up ......... Houston we have problem.
When turn key I only have power to volt meter, nothing besides headlights work.
So I assume that this contraption that works with key is problem.
I have the key moving the rod and the 90 degree end of rod stuck in slot & mounted to column
Am I missing something on this?
First CJ that I've ever had with this rod / key gizmo.
Know why there are different procedures. There are different ignition switches.
I have the style on left, where rod goes into slot.
So after reinstalling the column... drilled holes and got Tuffy under hood storage installed.
I've been looking at these for years but never bought one.
They sent 1" bolts which are too long to fit with their Z bracket.
And the uninstalled seal they sent really sucks.... so gotta find some U trim seal.
Got it keyed alike to other Jeeps and also got another lock assembly for BTB metal dash pad.
hole sawed it for cleaning then plugged it with Jeep floor drain plug.
It's pretty big size and will hold tool roll, hammer, ATF & oil.
Needed to get it now... so I could see exactly where to mount A/C drier.
