Ok gentlemen, I have some info for you if you run in to the same problem I did.

I did the whole setup, just like Mongoose. I went to spray some fluid and got absolutely nothing. I went back in to my engine bay and couldn't figure it out, I was moving the new container around and I lost my seal of the washer fluid, it all poured out, no big deal. My problem was that when I was trying to pull enough slack for the stock washer fluid pump line, the connector was severed off because of the taps that I had used with the Bwoody supplied connectors.

When you do Zac's proposed setup, you need to use the low level fluid connector from the Bwoody connectors, and the stock washer fluid pump connector. Unless your Jeep was built with more slack in the wiring, I had barely enough slack to get the stock washer fluid connector to the pump itself. Every time I tried to pull more, I must have weakend the wire and eventually it severed.

So, I went to my dealer the other day to get new connectors. You may ask why I did not just solder my old lines, when I used the Bwoody taps, I put them about an inch away from the connector, there wasn't much line to use and I didn't feel like trying to make it work.

Get ready, the new connectors aren't cheap. The Low Level Washer fluid connector is $25 bucks. You get the connector and about 18" of wire. You have to put the wires in the connector yourself, they don't do it for you.

The Washer Fluid Pump connector is $95. I have no idea what makes is so friggen expensive, it just is. Again, connector and 18" of wire. You have to put the wires in the connector yourself.

The only good thing is that they give you 4 wires in each package, so you can do one of the supplied connectors, and you can fix your old ones, so you will have a backup just in case.

Here are the part numbers:

Windshield Wiper Fluid Pump connector: 1-68080560AA
Low Level sensor connector: 1-68045333AA

Hope this info helps anyone else who needs it. I will be extending my factory lines next week when this dreadful heat leaves us alone. It's 105 with high humidity, in the garage it is unbearable.

I finally got around to splicing in the new wiring connectors today. I then re-installed the setup that Mongoose showed us on page 1. I am one happy camper, I have what I think is the best option for a COLD air intake, as well as water pressure for the windshield wiper fluid.

I had to make one modification though, I used spacers when I bolted the metal frame to the engine bay, I needed to get the tank and the pump away from the intake itself, it was hanging too low. I spaced it out about 2.25" and it looks great. I now need a new lid for it and I am good to go. Thanks Zac for your efforts.

Ok, here are a few pics, sorry for the crappy quality. Taking car in tomorrow for an oil leak, then I'll post pics of the whole ride. (they wash it for free, I was going to waste my own time today washing and remembered they do it.)

Well spacing it out was easy, I am in the home theater business and all TV mounts come with plastic spacers. I used 2 on each side, and a few washers to get it far enough out from the intake. I tried taking up close shots but they came out like crap. I'll try again later. And I just ordered a Billet cap for it so I don't have to have the stock one dangling with a zip tie.

I'll have to snag a pic of my latest setup. I ended up taking a small plastic welding rod and bending it over in a "U" shape and used some epoxy to fasten it to the bottle. It's more like the OEM setup how it would snap into place.
