Wyoming Newb

I am glad to be back in the Jeep family - have had several Jeeps in my life, but the newest (and oldest) is a 1965 Kaiser Wagoneer with an AMC Vigilante 327 V8. I've only owned it for a couple of months, so I have lots to learn. She's my daily driver, and purrs like a kitten.

But who decided that in-line fuses were a good idea???

Looking forward to learning more.

I like to picture them (evil corporate bean counters) as working in a slightly dimly lit office with that cheap faux wood siding from the late 70's, a little smokey, and a cheap desk with damage to laminate from spilled coffee over the years and cigarette/cigar burns. Every time that inline fuse blows and you can't find it, or it's rusted shut, they give off a creepy laugh that slowly transitions into a productive cough.

The Tornado 230 is a moniker that's assigned to folks with a low posting count. The more posts you make, the better the engine you will see there.

old iron electronics

Man i miss the days of inline fuses and only three to worry about. Wait until you have to chase phantom electical issues you will be glad that rig only has 100 ft of wire to run the whole machine. Enjoy the simplicity
