ok thanks, I'll definitely read into that. I realize that finding a kit like mine is not likely, unless i did what you said and called a body shop or junk yard to get a replacement, but thats the thing, I don't want a replacement. I would like to set this up as if it was an older vehicle without a computer, and so I can get some aftermarket gauges. I know it probably would not be to hard to track down these common problems, but there is also a lot of wires that have been messed with, along with a lot of wires that are not in use anymore as I've already stated. I'm basically redoing the whole truck and figured if I fixed those problems, who's to say there wont be more electrical issues later? I just thought it might be better to start over new. Maybe not?...I'm not trying to argue, I'm just trying to figure out what's best. I'm making everything else new so why not that?
Thanks again for the replies.
