    well if you have the entire wire harness...

    the part that runs from the cab (slips into the one with the engine harness and they bolt to the fusepanel in the cab....

    so from cab to the headlights, turn signals and stuff...

    there is not alot to that harness.... the only reason why I want to replace it is I have a ton of butt connectors holding mine together.... my harness fell into my steering and wrapped itself up.. and got ripped apart...

    so I mended it but the connectors are starting to corrode inside.. so replace is not a must but would like to do...

    I know where you can get the clip harness. I just sent this truck to the junkyard near me. It is an 87. the harness is good and all there. I was parting this in December. Wish I knew then that you would need it now.
