  1. Yes of course, though I’m hoping to find new. I’d imagine it’s not easy to find a new wiring harness for and 89 Jeep though. Just was wondering if there’s a good website that anyone knows of that I haven’t come across yet.
  2. Does anyone know where I can find and purchase both engine and dash wiring harnesses online for my 89 4.0L?? I have looked all over the forums and as many websites I can think of. I'm in western Canada, so hopefully somewhere that ships up here. Plz help!
  3. Fun is the plan! Frustration might be the outcome haha! Excited to get it going! I’ll post progress as I go
  4. Thanks Pete! Yea, that’s pretty much exactly what’s happening. The xj will be everything 4.0 related. Most of the parts are in far better condition than the 89 mj, including all the wiring and dash. The 89 motor is strong and in better shape than the xj so I have some mix and matching to do. Long story short, I’m trying to figure all the the logistics of the swap this week while I’m away at work, and next weekend I start the real wrenching when I get home! Thanks for directing me to the right spot to ask all questions Jeep! I’m still trying to find my way around the mass amount of great info in these forums. The motor, mounts, trans, x-members, tcase, most things mechanical will swap over to the 88 without much grief. It’s the wiring I’m curious about and any unforeseen issues I’m bound to come across. Ideally I’d love to read up on someone who’s swapped a 2.5 to a 4.0 thread! Again thanks for the help. It’s greatly appreciated!
  5. Alright, so here goes nothing. I’m a long time lurker, first time poster. This is a doozie of a project that I’m undertaking but I’m confident in my abilities, so let’s giv’r! I’ve got a beat up 89 4.0 4x4 that has been thrashed on in the bush too many times and needs a new body. Lo and behold I’ve come across an 88 2.5 2x4 for the right price in near perfect condition. The plan... swap the 4.0 into the better body and with it, the trans, t-case, lift, axles, and all other necessary components, everything’s getting swapped into the new body. I also have a 91 Xj 4.0 as a parts truck for most things motor and front end. I’m trying to figure out if I can use the wiring harness from the xj and run it through the 88? I’ve heard a 91 harness doesn’t match up all that easy, but I can’t seem to find much info about it. Any help would be so much appreciated!
