      well it looks like you are going to have to buy the harness and wire it up. to do it all you do is take out the tailights, figure out which wires go where( blinkers brakes etc.) its only 4 wires. both blinker, one for the barkes, and a ground. simple job. good luck.

      I think you can buy just a plug in adaptor that taps off with a trailer harness. I haven't put one on a 1st gen, but on my 95, I think it mounts right under the driver side rear taillight. Any good auto parts store should have them.

      I was just asking about this on my other post. ;)

      Which harness did you buy? Where at? And how much?

      I need to do one for my truck.
