FYI....

Many here are well aware of the Mopar Z Case Fuse Array, that resides in the Power Distribution Center (PDC).

We know that this fuse array ... and a fuse blowing in it.... can leave our JL/JLU/JT in a bad situation lets say.

Many of us carry a spare high amp fuse array, just in case....

Many here first heard about the Mopar Z Case Fuse Array, when it was mentioned in a YouTube video by a FCA, Tech that had taken to YouTube postings.

After his YouTube video, he started profiting from / selling the 68368853AA Mopar Z Case Fuse Array. Thanks for the video... yes, it got me up to speed but...

Anyway, the other day, I found a clue and zeroed in on something.... this something was later confirmed by @Jebiruph, when I messaged him .... and asked him what the hell.... 8-)..... and then he went and did some poking around about this , and... We have since communicated via forum messaging regarding this enlightening, lets call it..

What we zeroed in on is that there are two different Mopar Z Case Fuse Array's that you can use in regard to the JL/JLU/JT.

That's right, two different fuse arrays (different part numbers) and it is imperative that you install, the correct part number array, which is dictated by how your vehicle is equipped..

In the last few days, I have been in contact with multiple Mopar parts suppliers and 2 dealership parts departments and even when given my Vin#, they cannot tell me what fuse array, my JL would need if the installed one dies. ALL said, pull the fuse array and check part number is the only way to know... 8-(

So, FYI..... there are two different high amp fuse arrays.
Difference is one has a 60 amp fan fuse and the other has a 100 amp fan fuse. That is the only difference but yes, they are different and you need to keep this in mind.

As for me, I went out and ordered another fuse array so I have one of each part # fuse arrays. I didn't feel like pulling the fuse array to check the part number.. Someday I will sell the unused array(s) and recoop my $.

By the way.... having the tow package is undoubtedly what dictates you use the fuse array with the 100 amp fan fuse.

I pulled the cover on my PDC & it shows N5 in the array as the "Rad fan" and either 60/100 amp. I didn't pull fuse array to check on part number, I'll check it when I need to remove power for maintenance or accessory install.
Edit: I have the tow package so I'm guessing I have the 100 amp N5.
