I've heard of trucks with no AC, but never of one that didn't come with cruise control. Look under the driver's side battery. If there is an actuator under the battery shelf you just have to troubleshoot the cruise. The factory service manual has it.

This one doesnít even have the buttons on the steering wheel for it. No actuator no nothing. Thereís a dummy cover where the switches normally would be.

That is one rare vehicle you have. If you are going forward with adding CC there are some things you need to know. The controls are not the same for every year. 1500 parts are easier to find in u-pull-it yards, the components are the same. You might have to source a clockspring. That could be a problem.

Would the actuator be the same as a gas burner? I thought those year gas burners were fuel injected already?

Good question. A look under the battery box will tell you.

Just did a little poking around because I'm kinda surprised by the idea that any trucks didn't come with em too. Looks like you can pick up new switches (though I wouldn't bother, they are a fail-unlikely part, and $120 new!), and the actuator cable and clockspring is available. Everything else you'd need to pull from the yard (or ebay, or whatever). I can't swear that the engine/dash harness is wired for cruise, but it would really shock me if it wasn't. There's a small harness that goes from the main engine harness to the cruise actuator you'd need to pick up.

Here's a 'parts list' for the underhood parts. Unfortunately, as you can see, most is discontinued and you're on your own, but none of it should be difficult to find in a yard. The clockspring with cruise, 56007627, is available new, but pricey at $150 or so. That's probably the only part I really might consider going new on, though. They do wear out and pulling the steering wheel is no fun, might only want to do that once. It looks like they indeed had a separate clockspring for non-cruise models, so you'll need it.
