Holy bad wiring job Batman! :duh

That little thingy next ot the coil is th radio capictor. It is suposed to stop the coil from making the radio staticy.

You might want to buy a solder gun and fix that bad wiring.
You're about 3 months from the coil wiring falling apart :banghead

as far as the coil wires go, one goes to the battery where does the other go? and where does the radio thing plug into?

A bit of advise.....

Start with the battery / alternator / charging circuits.
Then move to the power distribution (you might want to add a single large fuse block under the hood if you have lots of features and add on's. Pick a underhood fuse box out of a junk yard)

Once thats done work on the engine compartment, then move to the rear of the truck. replace any bad grounds and make sure the tail lights are good and LEGAL!

Once you have that good base to work from you can work on the interior. You don';t want to keep redoing circuits each time you do womething, so plan in advance. Make room for power and gounds.

Oh don't use cheepo crap like whats on your truck or what JC whimpy sells

It plugs into the neg wire on the coil, redo that circuit soon, but start with that list above!
