No its a bunch of wires....lol You have the 8 coming from the transfer case, 2 additional plugs on the gem, about 6 on the shift module, a couple to the cluster, 4 to the switch and then a few to the fuse box and battery junction box....yep a pita but I want it to work the way it should. I did use the AVM hubs so I don't have to do a pulse vac setup or live axle.

I hate running wires. That alone would take me a few days because I have no motivation when it comes to that stuff.
