The led flasher won’t have any effect on the standard incandescent bulbs. Led’s Don’t daw much current and a normal flasher sees it as a bulb being out. I would just rewire using the online instructions and see what happens. Hopefully you didn’t fry anything on the circuit board.

Keep us posted.

Nothing super exciting, but I redid the battery cables with military-style terminals and some 2/0 cables from batterycablesusa.com. Pretty impressed with their quality and low price!

I’ve been trying to pay attention to quality on little projects like this, so dielectric grease all around, 3M electrical tape, and split loom over the cables.

Anyone have any recommendations for a good battery? I used a DieHard in my TJ and it’s been great, but the Sears in town went out of business about 3 months ago...

For regular batteries, liquid filled, I always buy Interstate Batteries. I even run them on my Dodge Ram 3500 diesel.
On my off roading Jeep, I run Optimas dry cell.

How is the Optima performing/holding up? I heard that their production went to Mexico a few years ago and they haven't been the same since.

I got dual batteries on my Jeep cj, red top runs the vehicle electrical and yellow top runs the winch, about 7 years old and still holding up good.
I think these are USA made.

That was over a decade ago. They're back to good quality now.
