    Wiring Harness Whats good whats not

    Just was wondering What everyone's thoughts On wiring harnesses are. I have a 55 210 wagon i purchased recently and it going to need all the wiring redone. Im looking for something that is very complete.

    American Autowire is a crowd favorite.

    I think that kits that are available with additional options such as the type of steering wheel column or extra circuits you're using or placement of the fuse box where you want it along with wiring that is labeled along it's length is the right choice for a novice. Color coding is okay if you have a bit more experience but the labeled stuff really makes the job a lot easier and certainly faster. I think it's worth the extra money. Personally I prefer to wire vehicles from scratch or use a small kit to obtain a built switch panel but I have been doing wiring for 50 years.

    I've wired several cars, ans since I tried AAW, I wouldn't use anything else.....in fact, I'll be helping a friend do a 55 2 door wagon next month with an AAW kit.

    I've used Painless and AAW, and I like AAW. I like the ability to connect one wire at a time to the fuse panel, instead of dealing with a nest of wires already terminated at the panel. I also like the way AAW splits the system into modules, so you deal with one section of the harness at a time. I wired up a Jeep Wrangler with the AAW Highway 22, and will be installing the same kit again on my '57.
