Sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner. I tried to follow the routing of the original vacuum line. In fact on the outside of the body tub I ran the wiring loom inside some vacuum tubing. The wiring exits a grommet on the outside of the body under driver’s side dash. Enough slack is left to allow lowering windscreen. Wiring loom was wrapped in period correct fiber electrical tape and routed along top edge of windscreen frame. It looks really good even though it wasn’t routed inside windscreen tube. Good luck.
Jim – I notice that you have what appears to be electric wiper motors mounted. How did you run the wiring? Inside the windshield frame? A photo would be nice.
Thanks – Tim
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you but I haven’t checked the Kaiser site of my photo post in a long while. The tires I have are Coker Tire 643507 “600-16 Firestone Knobby.” They are unfortunately not cheap but the best price I found was at JEGS not at Coker oddly enough. I paid 129.99 for mine not including shipping. They have a very deep tread that holds up nicely. They hum significantly but I’ve found that they literally turn peoples heads to see what is coming. Then you get the satisfaction as they wave at you or give you a thumbs up. The sound is not unpleasant or annoying but definitely noticeable. They are also much more roadworthy (both on and off) than a military tire.
Let me know how yours turns out.
Could you send me info on the tires you have on your Jeep? email@example.com
