Dilema...

Was at the bone yard yesterday looking for a better seat for my CUCV. Found a decent one out of a late 80's Ford F150. But here's my issue...They have a mid 80's k1500/6.2 diesel with every option . They want 350$ for the cab with all wiring. It's pretty hard to find a cab already setup for diesel with a/c and cruise etc. Although I'm not sure if I want to change the CUCV over maybe I should buy the cab ? The cab is actually not in that great of shape. The one on my CUCV is near mint with the now repaired drivers side floor but I could gut everything from the other cab including the wiring harness. I don't know.... Could probably even get 50-100$ for the cab after i gut it.

Mine is a Silverado too with all the bells and it is nice, if you are going to add anything else to your truck, it would probably be worth it to have all of the wiring.

I'd pull the trigger on that, it would most likely be worth it to you if you ever wanted those options. Grab the cruise control servo off the motor while you're at it.

Hence the "Dilema..."
I say that now but when hot weather comes around..Fat Kid likes his A/C....
The CUCV electrical system is quite the PIA. It may come to a point where I say F'it and just convert to Civvy stuff. IDK.

IDK... I like my truck with the aftermarket a/c it works great, and it is easy to get around the engine...
just thought I'd add to the dilemma...
