When you say he ordered a new harness does that mean he used the new style harness or the old style harness? I picked mine up mint condition for $500

Thanks for any help steve

The boards them selves install just fine... the wiring harness that they came with was for a 2006 truck(he has an 02), so he called AMP research, ordere the new wiring harness for his year truck, and everything was groovy.

Ah I see well unlike him I'm trying to wire up the 08-13 on my 2004 using the 08-13 steps. Newer designed steps, can use there factory led system with them. I guess I'll just have to get wiring diagrams for both and make it work will take lots of pics and post here

Did you ever get a chance to get the steps mounted?

I just bought a set also and in the same boat as you.
