If you use a tube clamp and put it above the basket on the c pillar where it is at an angle, assuming your front mounts are solid, it would very sturdy, the mounts won't move and not impede any storage below.

That's the plan, just need to figure out the front mounts

Primed and ready

The hood needed a little mud too...

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1999-2006-DBC-Vortec-4-8-5-3-6-0-Standalone-Harness-with-4L60e-Transmission-/18266395200

The cut down harness currently in my CJ is kinda a mess. Last trip to F&F I was having problems with the fuel pump relay. With Cormierís help we finally got it to stay running the rest of the day but a more permanent fix is needed. Iím thinking a stand alone harness might speed up the process a bunch and looks nice and tidy too...
Anybody go that route on their rigs?

Is your current harness a pinned out factory harness?
If so, does it use the stock gm underhood distribution center? If so, I wager the issue is not the harness but in the distribution center, the internal solder connections on older unit have been for letting go. I want to say pre - 05. Easy fix is to split the box and fix

Yes, itís a stock harness. There was a ground issue coming out of the pcm as well has some less than stellar connections at the relay/fuse block...I was thinking that a new standalone harness would remedy those as well as clean up the wiring mess a bit. Itís pricey though!

Big Griffin LS swap radiator with Derale fans. I might have polished it...

Haha. Actually I found it on eBay for a screaming deal ($100), Itís a couple years old but never had coolant in it. The Derale fans are pretty reasonable too...
Gotta save my pennies for a garage!
