That belt diagram has the years wrong. HO 91-95 used a belt routing similar to renix but with a shorter belt. 96 up 4.0L in XJ used the one on the right.

RockFrog,

I'm putting a '98 motor in an '89 using all bracketry from '89 (PS, alternator, A/C). Should I use the 96+ belt routing or does using the Renix brackets change things?

 

Thanks

Use the belt routing based on the brackets you use. I have 88 brackets on my passenger side and 96+ on my driverside. The later PS arrangement with respect to the belt tensioning is a better lass problematic system IMO. If it were me I would use the '98 intake, convert the fuel rail fittings, and adapt the TPS, and run the '98's PS. (one would also need the '98's throttle cable and either bend the pedal or use the one from the' 98 as well. I just dislike the Renix TB although I do like the Renix MPFI.

Then use the '89 alt/A/C. But I likes my punishment.

(this is essentially what I did with my '88 except used a '99 intake manifold).

Routing would be like so ...

Here are some pics I would've found helpful repairing my mj

 

B pillar light wiring

If you file down the spade connectors on the light and remove the connector housing on your wiring harness you don't have to cut any wires. I just threw the old housings in my glove-box if I ever decide I need them. I ended up needing to replace the diode on one of my lights because I kept hooking up the lights wrong and it went pop. Hopefully this spares someone from having the same experience. 

 

Rear tail light harness plug--- These pics are from a 92 Comanche. From what I've seen online older MJs seemed to use a different connector that looks kind of like a weatherpack. I don't know who made this connector for chrysler, or where you get pins for it but you can find them in the junkyard on other cars to make a plug in trailer wiring harness. Early 90s dodge dakotas are the best source for this plug and you can find them at the firewall bulkhead. Jeep ZJ's use this connector for the fuel pump. I'll write more about it  on a different thread when I finish making the harness

Also a neat alternative to a stock radio that doesnt look like it came from a tron movie:

Doesn't look too out of place and has a nice stock green backlit display that turns on with the lights. I think it has the capability to dim too but I haven't figured that out. It has Bluetooth (main reason for swapping) USB, aux, CD and gets weatherband. You can pick them up for $40-50 on ebay. Its a Panasonic Pana-Pacific CQ-BT5159U and is used by oems on semis. It uses an iso connector and the only pre made plug and play adapter I could find was P/N PC2-38-4 from europe. It also remembers the time for 30 days with no power. If you do get one you will NEED the owners manual to set it up, my only complaint about it is that it isn't as intuitive as other radios as far as messing with settings/functions.

Dash harness routing:

The holes in the dash for the zip ties are 1/4". These zip ties are a good match for the factory ones.

What year is this from? Just asking cause one of my '91s had PB8 from the factory, which supposedly wasn't a thing. Well it does according to FCA at any rate. I want to say the bits of paint sticking through where the respray is flaking off look more like they could be PQ9... but I can't run out and check cause it's parked at the welder's place right now.

I think red is the constant power wire.  tan would be the switched power.

Dome lights are full-time power, ground-side switched. Red would be constant 12V. Tan would be a switched ground from the door switch or headlight dimmer, and black will be a full time ground (so the light comes on when you push the light to turn it on)

So, here's what I have.  The first pic is of the wires from the existing B column light that no longer comes on.  The second picture is the schematic that came with my replacement lights.  I think the red is the hot wire.  I'm not sure which of the other 2 would be the switch wire and the ground wire.
