How old is the battery?

Look in the tips/tricks section.

U might have to take some grounds off and test to see if they have juice on them.

U might need to CLEAN UP/add some grounds.

Did U add anything recently check for chafing on wires.

Its hard to diagnose over the net.

I added a few new eletrical stuff with inline fuses to the battery however eversince I purchased the jeep from the po its been doing this. I just disconnected the battery after i drove it, but now im ready to fix it..

I went out this morning to see if I could figure it out the only thing I could come up with is that the po installed three gauges. " oil, temp, volts.

after the jeep is turend off all three gauges that the po installed are still on. hummmmmmmmmm could this run the battery dead in two days without turning the jeep on?

battery is brand new alternator is brand new.

:scratch:

Pull the POSITIVE terminal off the battery and put a
test light between the positive terminal and the
battery cable. If the test light lights up, then
you have a DRAW somewhere.

Then the fun comes in, trying to track it down.

Remove the battery cable from the positive terminal
of the battery.

Place a test light between the positive terminal of
the battery and the battery cable.

If the test light lights up, you have a flow of
electricity from something in the electrical system,
and this is what is making the battery discharge.

Those gauges should power down when the key is OFF, track down their power source and make sure it's to a power source that is only on when key is on, I bet it's not, that could be draining your battery enough to cause your problem...
