4 pin

There isn't currently a 7 pin?

Is this a 2wd truck?

I don't see any trailer light connection and its 4x4

I'm looking for a good (and helpful) diagram

Ask Your Own Chevy Question

Near the trailer inline connector close to the rear lamps bussing block... but no pic, yet.

Do you have an email address where I could send you a picture?

Ask Your Own Chevy Question

Man, I'm not sure what to say about this - I've found a couple of pictures that would imply there is a round 7 pin connector at the back of the vehicle, and I've found a 4 way plug and play harness. But I can verify enough information about that plug at the rear of the truck, Does it currently have a hitch?

Ask Your Own Chevy Question

*can't verify enough information about that plug

Ask Your Own Chevy Question

Does it currently have a hitch? If so, there would probably be some factory wiring somewhere... Most of those chevys of that vintage came with a trailer hitch... have you slid under the truck at the rear? I've seen it where the wiring has been ripped off by zealous off roading

There is a 3"x4" connection with 4 sets of wires plugged in centerby rear bumper. Is there a part that plugs in here? I did that with a S-10

I haven't found anything that looks like it would plug in there - still looking

Ask Your Own Chevy Question

Ok - I've tried a couple of sources, and only thing that comes up is the plug and play for the 7 pin. I'll release this question, and hopefully another Expert will have some insight.

Hello, on your model there should be a harness under the bed under the spare tire. They will color match to your flat 4 harness. HERE is a video showing installation.
