    Wiring issues

    The 40 circuit is gauge lighting. It’s probably part of the 80 mph speedo and would plug into a splitter from one of the two dash lights. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Humvee Seat rails

    The MWO doesn’t remove the battery box…. Just adds the stiffener for the battery box cover and additional angled bracket on the back to hold it down. And then remove old drivers base, add new brackets and backing plates. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Humvee Seat rails

    I gave him the part number for the rails that are used in the seat MWO. It looks like he’s adding that seat base in place of the battery box after relocating the batteries. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Gauge Cluster Wiring… Help?

    Electronic speedo install notes I made a while back. I built the harness copied from an OEM but have no details about how it’s “supposed” to be routed. The wire numbers are correct and matched my truck. I didn’t have the second splitter required because I ran out of connectors so I didn’t...

    Gauge Cluster Wiring… Help?

    Here’s the tach installation info. Not easy to follow because it’s a crap scan from crap drawings, but it calls out circuit numbers and locations. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Gauge Cluster Wiring… Help?

    The 27M and 27N are tied to the fuel gauge (power) and then to the tach harness. That’s the only place I’ve found those numbers mentioned was doing tach installs. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Soft Doors vs X doors - what do you prefer?

    X doors leak and rattle more than soft doors. If you take the time to fit them properly and work on seals and rattle reduction, they’re a little better. My soft doors sealed well and were quiet, I moved to X doors because I added a helmet top and they fit better. If you’re expecting a night...

    How do you replace the boots on the electrical connections?

    The male side can be done by removing the clip, removing the old boot and pushing a new boot on. Female side requires cutting off and replacing the contact. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
