It’s coming together.
Broke jeep donated its hitch wiring to the black jeep. We’ll see how this 4.0 compares to the 5.9 Cummins in tow capacity. Hah! Anyways.
The connector got blown up in the accident. Upgrade!
All the wiring is twisted, soldered, and shrink tube sealed.
7 and 4 pin connector. I like this style because you don’t need an adapter. I had one on the Cummins, it was nice. This one seems to be wired a little better than the Cummins, but this is an oem wiring harness. I believe the 5.9 jeep has an oem harness as well.
I mean jeep.
It’s getting out of control around here.
The 5.2L got smashed in the ass. So I bought a 5.9L to replace it. That seems like a legitimately sane decision.
There’s a noise, and oil pressure builds when you rev it up.
Whatever, I’ll just fix it. It also has every normal problem a 1998 should have.
-coolant sensor error on the Vic
-automatic lights jitter
-sunroof doesn’t open
-hatch and glass struts are blown
-front diversion noise/leaks
-electric door locks don’t work
-someone used too much air freshener
This particular one has runny spray painted taillights, a plugged sunroof drain (I believe), a 3″ lift, new tires and rims, a non functional remote entry/maybe alarm. And some other piddly crap.
It seems to be the same color as the 5.2L, so that’s nice, same color interior too.
Now I wait for the carpet to dry and a battery to charge.
