    Thumbs down painless wiring harness?

    I am getting ready to swap in a small block and a flaming river column with the gm plug. My question is would a CJ preterminated harness work on these trucks? I am going to do a complete 12V conversion. I know I will have to change all the gauges and the headlight switch. The column already has the turn signal lever. I assume this will be the fastest way to get the truck back on the road.

    Thanks

    I would imagine that the wires would be way too short...

    I bought a harness for a full-size Chevy pickup and it was just about right.

    A CJ harness would provide what you need circuit-wise, but it would definitely be physically too short to get out to the core support for the headlights and of course to the taillamps.

    Thanks for the input. I will just get the full size chevy harness. As for the column. I like spending money on new parts lol.

    Cut the old column on both sides of the firewall, clean up the edges with a file and your new column will slide right through. Then just bolt the upper mount to the dash.

    I didn't use a pre-made harness, but I did used the Flaming River tilt column with the Gm plug.

    Thanks for the pics. That looks great. Do you know the part# for that, or the length and diameter?

    Here they are. The steering column and the u-joint that hooked it to the steering shaft.
