Dash harness question

Does the wiring that goes into the drivers and passengers door disconnect from the main dash harness somewhere or do you have to replace the complete harness in the cab? If so I'm in need of a dash harness. PM me if you have one. Must have keyless entry and power mirrors.

Is there differences between an XL and XLT dash harness? I know that there are harness differences depending on whether the truck has keyless entry or not.

Usually they would be, I know the wire for power mirrors isn't in everyone, but if you have an xl and a bank of plugs with no wire other than 1 plug into your door then it's the same, although my 86 xl did not have provisions for xlt swap

From everything I've read an heard, has to be a diesel harness, the tach and gauges use different signals

That doesn't make much sense. Now if you meant the wire configuration is different...

My truck is an xlt but I want to add the factory RKE and theft. I don't want the aftermarket stuff. I need to pull the dash to insulate the firewall and I'd like to change out the harness for one that has RKE while I have it all apart.

Why does it not make sense?? Gas and diesel are very different trucks.
