Been doing a lot of small detail work on the bed along with grinding welds. Started working on relocating the filler neck on the gas tank today. Cut a c-notch in the frame. Hopefully will get it welded tomorrow along with this filler neck I made today.

Obviously the Engine and trans.

ECM, Wiring harness, Dash wiring harness, instrument cluster, ignition switch and keys, dash harness, power steering hoses.

If you have free reign then grab all that you can. The worst case scenario is you end up with extra and throw some things away. If you can grab all of those electronics you will have an easier time installing it in your truck and removing what you dont need as opposed to trying to find a tiny part you missed.

Use the original for motor & trans control. Contact Chuck! He'll clean up your harness for 1/2 the price of a new one.

Chuck's Roadster Electrics, (530) 477-7829 or mustang-medic@hotmail.com

For the rest of the truck use the original or one of the better aftermarket wiring kits.
