    FYI...................They (Hot Rod Wires) Don't have (Won't give me) a Wiring Diagram...!!!
    ...(I think that's weird?...just me?)

    "Follow the instructions, You don't need a Diagram...Just get one from a Chevy or something"

    I wonder how they build these things without wiring diagrams?...SECRET STUFF!
    I Guess I'll have to ring it out and make my own...

    If it’s not too late, I’d return that wiring harness for a refund and buy someone else’s. All I’ve bought ALWAYS come with a book/guide which I’ve always retained with the appropriate car/truck. Good Luck!

    I really like how your truck sits. The rake and wheel/tire combo really work well. What sizes tare the wheels and tires? I am thinking the wheels may be 15x7 and 15x8. Thx. Fun thread to follow!!

    Either that, or there's a mental hospital with an occupational wiring therapy group somewhere on Oahu. I've heard there are no snakes in Hawaii; with that wiring, you don't need snakes! I am Butch/56sedandelivery.
