    Painless wiring
    Post by tomahawk715 on Nov 20, 2006, 9:35pm

    Anybody here use a Painless wiring harness to convert to 12 volt? If so which kit did you use (kit part number??)? I'm looking at a Painless GM universal truck harness-mainly to get the length so I have no splices to the rear light harness>>>>On a similar note--I've heard there is a convert bulb chart available somewhere (24v-12volt) but my cousin cant remember where he saw it. Gives the 12 volt equivelents for the 24 volt bulbs-fit in the same carriers. Tried a google search but I'm getting alot of wierd matches to my seaches.

    Thats the concern-dont want to replace 40 year old wiring to improve reliability just to end up with a bunch of splices-water always seems to find em.

    I ordered the universal waterproof Harness 10140 . Painless said there is 25ft. wire for the rear , 16ft. wire for the front. $459 from Summit racing. I hope to receive and start installing this week.

    I used the universal truck kit with dash ignition - 15

    Plenty of wire - just a tad snug on the passenger tail lights - but that was because I centered my fuse block behind the gauges - unfortunately, that's where the heater ducting goes.

    Well labelled and I have plenty of circuits left to use.

    If I was doing it again - I would mount the fuse panel in a waterproof box under the hood.

    That Summit kit is just as good. I checked it out in person. Save some bucks and get quality at the same time.

    Compexp-Just checkin-that kit you got from summit is a Painless kit then?? I see it says standard length-Going by what you said about mounting it under the hood it if you did it over----would it have then been too short?? I see they do have a kit listed as universal truck long....

    I see a ton of the cj kits and bronco ones on ebay but the truck ones seem rare as hens teeth

    Check with these guys here at Ez wire Not sure how long the rear harness wires are but they might have a option to get them longer than standard.
