Wiring Harness Grommet Install

We made a hole in the CJ-5’s firewall that roughly matched this large grommet from the XJ. This allows us to weasel the Cherokee wiring plug through the firewall like on the old, wrecked XJ. We then roughly laid out what’s left of the XJ’s harness in the engine compartment, under the dash, and towards the rear taillights, getting it close to where we think its final place will be. Don’t worry, after adding in switches and ignition, we are gonna pull it back off, wrap it in electrical tape, and add some conduit to protect the wiring from the heat, road grime, mud, dust, and errant engine-egg rolls.
