2008 Wiring Diagrams

Can someone tell me where to find wiring diagrams for the 2008 Rubi?
They should be in the back of the owners manual.

Owners manuals are for owners, service manuals are for servicers

The service manual should have them. I tried to find a link to it but with not much luck.

Owners manuals never came with wiring diagrams. Do a search on ebay for the service manuals, they arent cheap though. What are you looking for?

Just the wiring for the headlights. I'm having a terrible time installing HID lamps. The shop where I bought the lamps has given up and I am determined to get them installed. It doesn't make sense to me that they can't be installed!!

Thanks. The write-ups are good but deal with pre 2008 non Hi-low beams.. Good background though I'm thinking along the same lines as the writeup. I also ordered a service manual CD. Can't wait for it to arrive.

No. I don't have vista or mac. I printed out the diagram entitled "Wiring harness - how to" and I understand it. The problem is linking the diagram to the vehicle. Questions : What does skt mean? Does the jeep have a Bosch dual 87 terminal relay, if so where is it? Where is what they call a "Jeep Side Connector?

They re-did the manuals to work in Vista. Mine works just fine.

I have the 2007 JK CD The service part will work fine. To view electrical diagrams - only works with the older version 6 of Internet Explorer. I use the free Microsoft Virtual PC with original Windows XP CD (used IE6) to run in a window instead.

Can you view the electrical diagrams?

Yep, no problem. I have a 2008 Manual. The only gripe I have is it's not searchable. It's not real intuitive either. It took forever to find the swaybar disconnect actuator. It's called Module - Final Drive Control. Nope, I wouldn't have guessed that.
