I would like to think so Mailmen work in all weather conditions. So hopefully it was a reliable jeep. The problam with it now would be that it would have high mileage since it is a mail man. Upside the United States Postal Service paid for the upkeep so it has been taken care of really good.

I have a1975 jeep it was a postal jeep i want to add a sterio and some other stuff but i need to install a nother fusebox how do i do that?


Glad you did not try to overload the existing connections. You want to put in a fused line close to the Battery. Doing this will protect things at the earliest possible position of trouble.

When you run the new line through the firewall, use a protected grommet to prevent chaffing. Use dumb gum or a silicone sealer to prevent exhaust fumes or water from entering the cabin through the grommet opening.

Use a fuse holder scaled to the size of fuse and wiring to match the fuse load. You will need a Relay to hook to your Ignition circuit. You may have an extra slot in the fusebox for the overhead lights some Postal vehicles used. This is your trigger wire.

The Trigger wire will go from a protected Igniton slot on the fusebox and it will connect the Relay to the Battery.

The use of a Relay allows you to connect 2 high-powered wires using only a minimum Trigger wire that is automatically controlled by the Ignition key. Then mount a small additional fuse block inside the cabin to provide smaller fused locations for the additional circuits you wish to add.

Be aware that the sum of the fuses in the new fusebox does not exceed the fuse size in the main lead. Maybe use a 20 Amp Main fuse and this will provide you with 4 5AMP circuits or 2 5AMP and a 10AMP position.

The Relay should be Automotive or Marine quality, but the wiring and fuse block can be from Radio Shack or a place like West Marine.

Also keep in mind that these are Postal vehicles and may not have big Alternators capable of much power.

I hope my solution is helpful.

Jeeps can be very reliable vehicles. I have seen Jeeps with well over 200,000 miles on the odometer. Keep in mind that reliability is only is as good as the maintenance kept up on it. Regularly scheduled maintenance is the key to a reliable vehicle no matter what brand of vehicle it is. Every vehicle has it's bugs and quirks, but if there is an issue you can have it repaired for free, if it's under warranty. They will notify you if they have any recalls on a particular problem area. I hope this helps and congratulations.

The condition you reported is either a control problem or "flaring" both are pressure related. I suggest you have a reliable trans shop test drive it. If it's a control problem (late shifting) there are external adjustments that can be made. If it is flaring, that is internal and may require a rebuild.
