Ive used an Advenced autowire universal 7 circut on a VW dune buggy. the block was nice but it took alot of customizing to get it to work correctly.

I would go with a premade replacement, even it was 2x the pice of the universal...unless you REALLY like heatshrink

I had one for my scout and I hated it. The factory harness is cheap and readily available, I would go with that (as I did on my series). If you have to add to it, so be it.

Where is the best place to get a factory harness? Are you talking about used?

I have the original harness that has been hacked so much I dont want to use it.

Jeff,

Are you happy with your keepitcleanwiring system ? Im having a hard time going with a "factory" supplier when 90% of my harness will not be stock. The only Land Rover electrical parts are the lights and the switch cluster ( wipers, horn, turn signal, headlights, high beam) on the steering column. Seems like a waste to cut all the "OEM" connectors. The engine, starter, alternator, gauges will not be Defender components.

This is why I am leaning towards a system like keepitcleanwiring.com. The other option is to make a harness from scratch. But I think the photos you had on your link shows that the wires are marked to make the job easier.
