I took a class on this like 2 years ago. I ******* hated that class. Got an A and then erased it all from my brain.

I wish I was still in college. My desire to learn has grown over the years.

Plug the bitch in was #1 on my list. I need to rewire the plug though.

Deezums talked about blowing caps though.
You're an electrical engineer and asking us how to wire it up?

Technically my degree is in electrical and computer engineering. With a computer science minor. I studied the computer side over the electrical side mostly. I'm a lot better programmer than electrician. I took 1 or 2 power classes and didn't like them. Wish I could retake them.

That's a 10-30, not a 6-30. 10-30 is hot-hot-neutral, 6-30 is hot-hot-ground. You can get 110 off the 10-30, but not off the 6-30.

I also ordered H4 conversions, upgraded headlight wiring and this bumper.

And I sent an email to a guy on CL about buying his Rubicon take off wheels.

Thanks for rekindling my interest in spending money on yet another project

This was inevitable.

Did you move the seats from the white XJ to the Comanche? If so, you may also want to put seats on the shopping list

1986 Jeep Comanche


Air compressor runs. Need to call the landlord and have him bring his forklift up and move it to the side of the house for me. Also need to drill a hole in the wall for air pipes and route air to the middle of the garage.

Harbor freight is having a sidewalk sale next weekend. Need to get an air reel. New jack, maybe some other stuff.

One thing is certain; people on this forum will be more helpful than most you will find on any truck forum.

Go to the track more often. You will have less money to spend on projects. :(
