tow package wiring harness

without going through a dealer, does anyone know where I can get a tow package wiring harness. I have seen some on the net, but they are not the same as I have. also I don't really need the plug adaptor, I already bought that. any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Ken

The dealer or junkyard are the only ones that will have the wires with the weathertight fittings. If you are looking to splice in the wiring then Napa or auto zone has them

Thanks Rev, here's the problem, the dealer wants $140 bucks, and that is totally out of the question, and I haven't been able to find it in the junk yard. I have called every junk yd. in 30 miles around me, no luck. I have already ordered the harness that will have to splice in.

Yeah I went through the same problem but dropped the $140. My truck sees a lot of salt so I didn't want to risk any problems

I just bought the truck a couple of mo. ago, and I far as I know this thing was working. the person that had the truck before me liked to go off road and in the mud, so I think that's what has caused this problem. like the old saying goes, u live, u learn, lol.

If you have the part number and/or the exact terminology Ford uses (e.g. "OIL INDICATOR ASSY" for what normal people would call a "transmission dipstick"), you might be able to find a discounted new Ford part from a dealer online, cheaper than your local dealer. I needed the aforementioned dipstick, list price $45, local dealer in PA wanted $60, found one on Ebay from a dealer in Iowa for $31 shipped.
