Factory wired and not used?

Just wondering if Workhorse/Damon wireing harness might have wires for options not included. I did look for fog light wire but didn't see anything obvious.

Yes, nearly all vehicles have extra wires in the harness. The reason for this is very simple.

Depending on the options you order and. in some cases the model of vehicle you order. Different wires are used.. Since it is cheaper for the auto companies, including the chassis manufacturers. to stock one "universal" harness than to stock 20-leven different harnesses. They put in the extra wires.

Sometimes, they are even useful.

Two things, Yes there probably are extra wires. The second is that they still use different harnesses for different applications. Otherwise the wiring harness would look like the old trans-Atlantic cable in order to accommodate all of the options.
