I moved your question here to keep the previous thread on topic.

He's asking about a power window and lock conversion I'm assuming so let's see what kind of help we can give  ;D

After skimming through Richard's build thread, I'm 98% certain he used all of the '96 harness that included power windows.

I also remember reading elsewhere that the window and lock harness are kind of separate, and not too hard to swap over.

Fullsizechevy.com I think would have some good tech on that project, lots of guys doing some pretty crazy stuff over there!

My '94 has manual windows.  I didn't have any suitable harness donors - the '96 donor truck had manual windows, too.  I pulled a harness from a '97 Yukon 4 door but it was so ridiculously complex I didn't want to bother with paring it down to what I needed, plus I had a buyer for the nice gray power panels.  I was in business to make money, not build myself a fancy truck full of options, so I sold 'em.



As far as shops that do this work, no idea.  I always did my own work so I never sought out other shops.

Thanks for reminding me to kick myself for selling my '98 interior donor  :(

Bah...you might like the looks of that '95-up interior but personally I hate them.  I only did it so I could bring everything over from the '96 engine door - all the harnesses, gauge cluster, column, A/C controls, etc. with zero harness hacking.

Hmmm, since my '95 is TBI, I wonder if I could find a '94 interior and harness donor.  ;D ;D ;D
