    OK, What is this black box labeled "FA"? It has the brake light switch included also, one small end was pluged into the "AGK" the other plug ins I have no idea where they go. After unplugging from the AGK everything still runs normal, do I need this extra crap? :crazy: :D

    Is it the abs? If not I would also say cruise control. What year did they switch over to all electric?

    Pretty sure I've got one of those in my garage from my old 87. 87 didn't have ABS, but it did have cruise. I didn't notice any ill effects from removing it.

    Hey I was looking through some pictures of my truck for someone that posted that they needed "naked" shots of the dash when I remembered this thread from this morning. I found the same thing in my K10. Anyways not necessary at all but I figured I'd share.
