Thanks for the info. Just picked up this truck today and the
owner kept saying it was an F250. No problem though to me
either way. Runs and is in good shape. Thanks again

OK, here's the deal;

I'm in the UK, and after a road accident I decided to add a late model GM column while they were repairing it, primarily so I could control my wipers from a stalk on the column (My inertia reel seat belts kick in every time I reach for the dashboard).

However, the column I found (that's difficult here) had cruise but no wipers. Is there a column that would have wiper control & cruise on one stalk that is compatible with my GM column? I hope you can help, I'm close to getting my truck back (after 15 months!)

Hope you can help,
