    Between ARB install steps today was passing the shop vac and did the condenser... and found this electrical connector not hooked up to anything. Tried to trace it but splices to a big loom going back to the panel I think. It's located at the top of the grille panel forward facing, just slightly right of center.

    So is this something like for an outside/ambient temp sensor that doesn't exist on my build or did someone steal my flux capacitor? (or whodjit descrambler?)

    it's outside temperature sensor connector, for EVIC. I see no sensor though.

    Yep outside ambient temp sensor connector. If I remember correctly the 02's didn't have the sensor installed unless the build required it (EVIC).

    Sweet. So I probably have the EVIC wiring required to do that project someday?

    Actually bought this stuff on Ebay during the race for parts for $30 plus shipping. (Yay winning bids no reserve). It's all off an '03 KJ that was parting out.

    EVIC goes to the end of the list for now - so much other :bs: to do first...

    no you will still have to run the wires like in the How-To also that is an OTIS not an EVIC in the picture.
