Thanks sonic! I believe it is off 99-04 suburban, Yukon. Here is the ebay link I got mine from. It is very nice and they fit like they were made for our trucks.

Decided I better upgrade the wiring and after about 20 hours of work in the evenings here is what I ended up with. I wanted to keep all the old connections so I bought new packard 56 male and female connectors to install the new wiring into the original connectors. I also added a connection point for the digital dash.

Coming out great! That v6 is gonna shine in the truck. You may be introducing that engine to a whole new generation.
