Depends on what kind of money you are dishing out and what you want to add to your truck. If you are gonna rewire it individually I would say set up relay panel and run from there (ex: headlites, injection, fuel pump,etc) with the relays you can wire teh ground to fault if you lose oil pressure or whatever is neccassary for that circuit.

Could replace it with a OEM harness which would be expensive but easy.

Could just replace the damaged circuits with like colored wires

Not sure if Painless makes a wire kit for the trucks, I have one in a mutt car I am working on and although I am happy with the quality and simplicity I would rather have bought the fuse block and run relays.

I would recommend you do what Slampig suggested, and use relays. Relays are a great source of protection, and they also prevent you from running higher current carrying wire through the cab and for extended lengths. Relays offer a great deal of flexibility when running electronic accessories. No matter what route you take, purchase a good quality set of wire crimpers and terminals. The packs of 1000 crimp terminals for $1 aren’t built to last for the long haul and the colored inulation usually falls off. Back when I had a hook-up I purchased some Snap-On crimpers that work awesome. They are part # PWC30. My friend is an electrician and he has a pair of Klein Tool crimpers. I haven’t used them but they look pretty much the same for a lot less. The Klein is part # J1005. If you want to go the relay route and need help setting up a schematic, e-mail me or post your concerns and I can help you out. [email protected]

I pull them colored insulation things off anyways and crimp, solder and heat shring the connection. Most of the time at least. Sometimes I may get lazy on a non-important low load deal and crimp and tape, but usually I get annoyed and end up redoing it in the future sometime.
