GM standalone cruise control swap

Anybody done it yet?
I have a unit from the wreckmaster I bought for punishment, er I mean parts.

You know the one, used on GM cars/trucks 80s & 90s.
I am guessing it will be an easy swap.
Especially since I have TBI already, the column stalk is GM, etc.

Be nice to lose the stupid vacuum crap archaic setup!

I'd be interested as well if the column switch was cruise only. Would be perfect for pre 1986 jeeps

column switch on 86-91 is turn, headlights(hi/low), wipers, and cruise.
earlier just cruise stalks could work? I'd have to see one...

The Dakota Digital unit is so easy, clean and works so well, I'll never have a vehicle without cruise control again.

Made some progress on this recently.

Got a VSS buffer from boneyard and wired it up.



Rounded up donor stuff from my stash of junk.



Here is where it will live.



Still need to go grab female pigtail from junkyard for column cruise switch.
Stay tuned for more.
