    Ok, I need a wiring harness for an 86 k5, wondering what people suggest. Ive heard painless wiring a lot but 450 is an awful lot. Any other options? Thanks!

    Being a faithfull reader of Rod & Custom, I have come across a reputable place that sells wiring harnesses for a lot less than Painless. Only problem is that I can't seem to remember the company's name right now. I'll look it up in one of my mags and post it for you later.

    Heres a couple That I've found, www.centechwire.com , and www.ezwiring.com The second one is a crappy website but the cheapest I've found so far ($195).

    Why you need to rewire? burn it up? Got a birds' nest you dont want to sort out? I've been thinking about rewiring mine too, doing a diesel to gas engine swap and don't like the idea of all the chopped up wires around.

    I bought a blazer tub and frame that are in mint condition. The tub had an electrical fire and needs a new harness. I still think I got a good deal for 300 bones.

    Yup, ezwiring is the place I was talking about. They advertise heavily in Rod & Custom and their wiring harnesses are color coded and appear to be very easy to install. I've never been on their website, though.

    Nothing wrong with getting one from someone parting one out or the 'yard. Pretty cheap, I think I even saw one in the for sale section on this board just yesterday.

    I bought a Painless wiring harness from a member of this site. I got it used but it is complete and it fits my application.
    It only cost $100.

    Try and get one from some one that is selling a truck or thinking of parting out their truck.

    If you can wait a couple of days, I'm trying to get a group buy started for painless wiring. I'll be posting the details in the for sale forum once I find out more.
