Default Winter upgrades

Received wire and weather pack connectors this week while watching KOH.
Now we that KOH is over just need to get out there and start re-wiring the juggy.

Don't worry there's still two tires on the ground.

Well started on the re-wiring. And reaffirmed how much I hate wiring. And I realized just how big of a project this is going to be.

Yeah, but it can be worse if the wiring is faulty.... never knowing when the next wiring gremlin might show it's head..

Yes but I have a problem bending down and looking up under the dash.
Vertigo sets in. Last Saturday I fell twice in the shop because of it.
Was not happy.

Received the rest of our wire order.
Now just need the crimp tool for the weather pack connectors.
Supposed to be here tomorrow. But with this great Michigan weather I highly drought it.

Got the juggy started today. After spending about 4 hours tracing wires down. found a ground wire off.
And we are having a problem with the cooling fan coming on. Seem to be the temperature plug not making a good connection. and the fans will come on with the key in the off position. going to need to look into both these problems.
Still need to install our new led cub lights for rock lights.
But everything seems to be working.

Well dam it.
Our luck just keeps coming on strong.
The used Volvo fan has a short in it.
It will run for a short pierid and blow a 40 amp fuse. But only on low speed.
So back to the drawing board.
Also ordered 2 10 place fuse blocks for it to up grade the wiring and help clean it up.
