Taillight wire harness

Hey y'all, I've got a 1996 f-350 and I bought it about a year ago and have been slowly fixing it up. The project I've got on my plate now is the lights. Long story short the rear end for the wiring is completely messed up, the kid I bought it from tried to fix it and ended up just adding a tumbleweed of wire and didn't fix anything. So I'm gonna go with a scorched Earth policy and tear out all of the wiring and start from scratch. I've looked online and can't seem to find a wire harness to just replace it so I'm thinking I'll just have to wire it up myself. Does anyone know of where I can get a new harness for the taillights? Also I need to replace the cruise controls and try to get that working again, but I can't find those parts anywhere either.

Re: Taillight wire harness

I doubt that you will ever find a new harness for a 20+ year old truck.

If it was me I would just head down to a junk yard and find what I need. Remember it doesn't have to be out of a diesel. I would stick with a harness out of a OBS truck. There are places on line that will search for you and then have the yard pull the harness and send it to you.

LMC doesn't have any wiring like that. I've looked.

I second the junkyard.

Re: Taillight wire harness

or local craigslist find a private party, wiring from a FSB should work also
The tail light sockets and bulbs are very similar to an explorer, so you can also cut the parts needed to build a harness off several other fords
