    Alright, this is my first thread so bear with me. I started out with my 1974 chevy 1/2 ton 4wd that had electrical issues and a bent frame etc.. Then bought an 86 3/4 ton stepside 4wd that had the electrical stripped out of it. COMPLETELY. Bought the truck for $200.00, which was a great price.

    My main question is have any of you heard or run a HONDA fuse box. (1 hot wire, 50+ wires coming off of it) I heard of this idea from a friend who said he's done it a few times, with two rigs he still runs. If you've heard of it done, or done it yourself please let me know on the easiest way to do it. Please know that the only wiring harness left on the truck is the one that goes to the headlights and blinkers etc.

    Also, if you have a link that may provide the ENTIRE wiring harness(s) kit for this year of pickup it would be much appreciated.

    Since all the wires are missing you can use any kind of a fuse box you want. I would opt for a GM power box from a GM late model truck. You could then follow the GM wiring using GM relays which would reside in the box.

    Here's some manuals to check out:
