So, here's parts I got today:

Torque converter and trans shift kit:



gauge adapter and adpater for the torque converter to fit the 5.3 flywheel...



Shifter:



Blazer motor to modify the heater box..




Got some scraps from work (parts from a chevy volt and dodge ram) which I will cut up to make indicators like turn signals and high beam.

Got my harness and ECU from Jims performance, really happy with it, and he's very easy to work with and thorough.



Every sensor is labelled clearly. All unneeded wires are gone. Stuff like the downstream O2 sensors and such are gone. Each injector connector is marked for its cylinder.



A new fuse block is added to supply power to the ECU, fuel pump, injectors, everything.



The harness is simple plug and play. Hook up the harness to the engine, hook up battery, ignition, ground. There are wires to the starter, fuel pump, tach output, two electric fan triggers, and check engine light. A diagnostic connector has also been added to install under the dash.

The ECU has been reprogrammed with a 'mail order' tune, and to eliminate stuff that I don't want, like the transmission programming, downstream O2s, secruity, etc.



Glad I did it, it would have taken me a week to get the harness this nice, and still would have needed to add stuff like the diag connector and fuse block, and sen out the ECU for reprogramming.

The harness turned out really nice! I have one here I need to send out, what did it cost you and how long did it take? I have a YJ in my garage with another company's harness on it...im not impressed.

He did it in about 1.5 weeks (he's in Maryland).. cost was $350 to do the harness.

I also send him my drive by wire pedal, TAC module, everything, and he powers it up and checks it all out.

Its one of those things that I could do it just fine, I can get schematics, I have all the pinouts actually. I can do the crimping, everything. But it takes time. I have a 5yr old, 2yr old, and 5mo old, busy work schedule, etc, so I get about 6 hours a week to work on this, and there's better use of my time. Glad I decided to farm it out...

Looks good so far.

You're right about the harness; it's not rocket science but it is time consuming.

When do you think you will be done (done meaning drivable again)?

I know what you mean, but what if you were part of a startup company that did this sort of thing on a larger scale, catering to all kinds of enthusiasts?

I keep playing the lottery so that maybe I can start that company.

Hmm, today was supposed to be a work day, but its slipping away on stupid other things.

I did get my central dash layout done. Hopefully tonight I can start sanding and painting the dash. I cut a piece of steel to fill the spot on the dash where the original gauges and a cutout for a radio were.

The tach will go in a pedestal mount on the steering column. The switches will control rock lights, front driving lights, rear backup lights, and one spare. If I can't think of anything else, I'll use it to power the amp. I'm going to put a small 4 channel amp somewhere in there, and just use an MP3 player as the 'radio'. The flat area in the upper right can't really be used, because the defroster duct is back there really close to the dash. Those are two power outlets on the bottom right.

Got a few minutes to work today (sadly, a 'few' is pretty accurate...). So I finished the dash plate. I transfered all the marks to a piece of MDF that I cut to exactly the same size as the metal plate on a table saw. Sheet metal warps and grabs bits if you try to drill it on its own, so I sandwich it between two pieces of MDF, and drill through the top board and the metal. Comes out nice and flat.

Here's the drilling. Nice to have the XY table on the mill, you can get everything lined up and drilled nice and straight.



Here's the panel done..




... and fillled...
