Figure 9. Continuing removal of the wire loom and tape. The loom comes off easy, but the tape is a pain to get off.

Figure 10. We have been working on a wiring schematic for the 99-02 truck harness to be used for converting the Jeep over. This also includes wiring the Bussman RTMR fuse block, and the Bussman Power Distribution Module. This will make it much easier for us to re-do the harness and keep everything straight. It needs some more tweaking, but then will be available as a full size 22 x 34 sheet to download from our shop.

Figure 11. Hooked up the old harness to help see where to route the wires. Still undecided at this point where to mount the PCM in the jeep, so total length of the wires is still not decided upon. We are still waiting for the remainder of the wire ordered to arrive.

Figure 12. This is the wire loom cover we will be using. It is braided copper, which fits in perfectly with the theme of this build. The example shown here is 1/4 inch. We will be using 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2 inch for the loom. Anything larger will not be needed until the main trunk going to the pcm connectors, and that will be covered with Powerbraid after it is off the engine itself. The ends of this copper braid will be covered with black heat-shrink.
