Wiring Harness Mess

7. Before long I came to the realization that the entire wiring harness from the used '97 truck is different from my '91 truck, and I was inundated with wiring nightmares. Luckily I made some calls and found that the dash I had chosen was specific to '95 since it didn't have any airbags. Plus my truck had the engine computer behind the dash on the passenger side where newer versions had it under the hood, except for early '95 trucks. I didn't know if it would work exactly, but I called around looking for a '95 wiring harness with the computer behind the glovebox and the gauge cluster that went with it, all of which should arrive after this goes to print. Watch the Web site for a conclusion to the wiring dilemma.
