    finished product. Read for instructions

    B724A999-DFAF-4204-9F6E-6DBB538079DC.jpeg Alright guys I have figured it out. Best thing to do is go to junkyard and take dash panels out. Follow wires from switches. It will lead to one square plug. Remove harness and switches. The harness also goes to hazard light switch on my truck. So just make sure you look at everything and get all you need. Then open your dash up. Find plug. It should be around the center of the dash. Identical to the one out of junk truck. Follow wires. Will lead to black junction box that operates smart wheel. It just has Velcro holding it. Then follow wires to steering wheel. Behind speedometer and just unplug all that junk and remove harness. Put switches in and plug everything in and you should be good to go. My truck is a 2007. Harness came from 2013. You just have to get harness from the same style dash that you have. Doesn’t matter what engine it has. I had to rewire my hazard light rocker switch but Jake’s and cruise all work perfect. Already ordered replacement standard steering wheel. Will post a few pics. Good luck.

    Square plug in dash that harness plugs into.

    @BDRyan92 I have a, 99 W900L with the old dash. I'm my junk yard I have a 2007 T600 with the new dash. To the best of your knowledge, do you believe the wiring harness is the same between the two? Even though the 2007 has rockers and not toggle switches I can swap the rockers out for toggles when installing into my old dash 99 W9. When I disconnect the smart harness out of my W9 I just want to plug n play besides swapping switches.

    Harness in going to be completely different on any 07 or newer truck, all the switches and gauges on that newer style dash are multiplex, thus run through the cab computer on those trucks, where your 99 will be "conventional" wiring.
     
    Vampire and CMJ Thank this.

    @BDRyan92
    Hi as you said I got harness and switches from junkyard and installed.It’s working all good. Now I need to find Horn wire. Do you have any idea for that ? And how can I install that? I have to get new steering as well? Or I can use same steering wheel horn switch?

    I have no idea about horn wiring. I never hooked my city horn up due to having air horn.

    That is true and not true. The gauges have absolutely nothing to do with smart wheel. It has its own separate harness like the one I posted pictures of. Jake/cruise switches go to engine ECM. Not to cab controller.
