    Has anyone bought the wire harness from Chevy Duty? It's suppose to be a duplicate from the original harness. Is there a better place to get the complete kit from?
    The one that's in my Blazer now has been redone, but they have more splices, shorts, and half of it doesn't work. I figured I would be better off starting from scratch!

    I don't think that Chevy Duty makes their own repopped harnesses. They probably get them from M&H Electrical Fabricators <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.wiringharness.com>http://www.wiringharness.com</A>. I know that they make good repops.

    You can also try a Painless kit. I have had a few friends that have used them and they liked them.

    I went with M&H for both firewall/fuseblock forward Engine and Headlamp/Alt/Reg harnesses.
    Bombproof. Simple. W/all the right colors lengths and OEM connectors. Even the little "Shootin' Shell"-style bullet connectors to hold the harness down to the fenderskirt were at the right position.
    It sure cured a variable open in the (GMC) dual headlight circuit behind the battery box that had eluded me and burned out more regulators than I care to admit.
    Worth the money. No worries.

    That sounds like what they have. The sockets for the side markers, tail lamp, headlight, etc. are already there with the correct colors. I'll check M&H prices out.

    Thanks guys!

    I installed the Painless wireing harness and it is sweet it rewires from headlight to tail light and most connectors came with it. Plan to spend alot of time to install it i took my time on routing and ended up taking me about 25 hours but was worth it.

    Oh. I forgot to mention that I got my M+H wiring from The Brothers in Corona. Cal. But do the homework and checkout all the catalogs, or you'll be paying too much for it if you go to the wrong place. I also got a Taillight harness from LMC and it was good too, but I forget the Mfr.
