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.

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?
