What's that wire-wound resistor on the driver's side inner fender for? Close to the unused relay. Aftermarket trailer stuff?
It is a resistor and it is for trailer power. This truck when it was build was top notch for its day apparently. It has dual battery set-up all the wiring for trailers the wood bed the tool box in the side of the bed. Has gauges in the dash not idiot lights. Power lock Dana 60. And large disc brakes.
I feel I got a killer good deal on this truck I have spare eddy intake manifold to bolt on so I do t need to use a spacer for the qjet manifold. My dad is very excited to rebuild the wood bed with me. And with a little tlc and a few hundred bucks this truck will be much cleaner then the above pics!
