need a head unit to operate.

regards to fuse center, air filter cooling package and also obdII connector. You could roll in to any GM dealership and have this truck serviced. This truck will pass emissions for

This truck was originally bought and used in a local utility company, that’s why it is

OSHA safety orange. It originally had a 6 cyl & 3 spd. It came with radio delete and dome lamp delete.
