I installed one of those pain-in-the-assess wiring harness. I had so many damn extra wires i couldnt use, took three months because i gutted the truck. Just go stock style and install as you remove that way you dont get confused where they route to. Also my friend took photos of the old harness in his car and used the polaroids to help run the wires right. Take your time to because wire burning smells bad. And dont leave you battery hook up. As you can tell ive had some bad experinces that i will never forget.

Cool

There seems to be two camps here:
Those who love the Painless kit, and those who hate it

File me under the "love it" catagory.

I did mine last year, and it went in quickly and easily. The modern blade style fuses are great. And with 18 circuits, it runs things like my new power windows, new radio head unit, and so on.

NO matter which way you go....Painless or Repro harness, take your time and run one circuit at a time, testing as you go.

I did the Painless for the front and rear and they were perfect. M&H Fabrication are also very good.
