Default Wiring harness for 59 f100

My wiring is a mess. I have a 59 f100 with 292. It is a 12v system however there is a mess of wires from factory. I have seen some wiring harness however they are very expensive. Does anyone offer a basic wiring harness for my truck that wont break the bank? I will also be having to hire someone to redo all wiring because I am not the pro in that department. Any idea on hours it takes to run a basic harness? Thank you

When I rewired and converted my '39 p/u I used a Rebel wire kit. Very straight forward. You should be able to do it yourself using either a Rebel kit or another universal kit. If you run into any issues they have great tech support. Kits are USA made and tech support is USA based. Took me less than a day but I did have help from someone more experienced than me. I am getting ready to convert my '54 Ranch Wagon to 12 volts using a Rebel kit. My advice is rewire it yourself using any of the universal kits available. I'm sure others have had good luck with using universal kits from Rebel or others.

Paid $135 for mine Found them on E-Bay.Wired my '56 F100 in about 18 hours total (a few hours each day for about 3 or 4 days) Nice wiring with decent but not great instructions. 5th car(truck) I wired with the set up.You don't need the big names in the wiring field to do it.

The Kwik Wire 14 circuit one I used ran me around $275. The Rebel 9+3 is probably good for the truck. Speedway has some basic ones I've heard good things about.

+1 for Rebelwire, and you cannot beat their customer service after the sale.
