yea I should have a few hours to throw at it I'll know more by the first of the week The winch shouldn't take very long the fan a little longer but I have most of the supplies to make it happen if Bob doesn't. I do have a good supply of wire and some old relays laying around for sure.

Next question what are you working on? Wrangler? and is the winch already mounted?

So is it a new winch with instructions? and I take it the radiator is a electric fan that needs wiring. I'm not very close to GB but if you don't find any help I might be available late next week, I live south of Holly.

First off I think we need a new section with this title.

Well I learned a long hard (and expensive) lesson yesterday. I put all new brakes on my car hauler back in May and when I arrived at the camp ground for trail maint. I discovered smoke coming off my trailer axle hubs. apparently the brakes had been dragging for a while. I suspected there was some sort of ground issue causing the brakes to engage when the headlights came on so my quick fix for the trip home was to cut the taillight wire and for good measure the blue brake wire after all brakes and tail lights are not a requirement to get from point A to point B.
Now fast forward to last weekend I am getting ready for a run to MD to pick up a Grand Cherokee and go to my grand daughters birthday party so I need the trailer to bring the Jeep home and I thinks it might be nice to have trailer brakes in the Pa hills. So I decide to replace all the wiring instead of trying to find the problem. I put a all new taillight harness and a new wire from the plug to the brakes too, but as before the wiring R & R my brake controller is giving me a "short circuit" code when activated. Then I spend a couple hours checking and rechecking all my previous work ( no need to check the new brake assemblies right there new right ),with no success its late so I give up for the day. The next day at work I'm think about my conundrum and decide to go ahead and check the new brake assemblies....ahha I found the problem the wires are melted together at the magnets on the brake assemble I replace in May, so I runs over to Tractor Supply and gets me some more new stuff I throw $150 buck at the clerk as I run by and say see later. Well I'm not getting any short circuit code anymore , buuut there still not working like I think they should and now I hear that little humming noise coming from the brakes when the headlights are on same as before....its late I quit and go to bed. The next day at work I'm thinking again ( I do that sometimes when I'm at work) so I start Googleing and low and behold I find out that the Hopkins pigtail harness I bought ( it goes from the controller to the junction block under the dash) is not wired correctly so I do some more Googleing and find out how to repin the plug and fix this problem, by the way I bought a new $100 controller hoping that was the problem, nope.  Well the moral if there is one to this rambling story is that just because you bought it new from a reputable company it don't mean it's gonna work like it's supposed to.

 I spent about $300 to find out that there were 4 wires in the wrong place in a plug under the dash!!!!

Now off to Maryland for a birthday party.

The list of things I need to do to my Jeep is getting long these days. When you said control arms it reminded me I have a set of rear upper bushings that I've had about 2 years, and I need to put them on soon I think it will cure the slop when braking at slow speed. I also am going to get a fuel pump from Scott G that he didn't use and I believe that while the gas tank is out it would be a good time to do the bushings. I also found a place in Redford to get stock front fenders for about $80 each so now that mine are full of rust holes its time to change them. But all this is after my son-in-law gets the timing chain changed on his F150 and I get the engine swap done in the 2003 Grand Cherokee for my step son. We are going out there next weekend (19th) and trailer it back. He got it for $350 but they want over 6K to fix it out there so Leanne and I will go out get the GC attend our grand daughters 3rd birthday party and come home on the 21st. Wish me luck!!

Yes I put in those kitchen cabinets up a while back and I got some more plastic shoe boxes to go on top. Now I can eliminate some stuff and clear more floor so I can walk around in there.

I bought a GenRac brand 6500watt gen. at Costco for about $800 and for the club you can get a Harbor freight flux core wire feed welder for $100.
