Question Please Help ... I can't find a in-dash wiring harness

Hey guys,

I really need some help here ... I can't find a in-dash wiring harness for my 2004 Ranger XLT 4X4 with the 4.0 SOHC and 5-speed transmission.(Yes I tried Car-Part.com and I've called about 28 different salvage yards so far) Not only that, I can't even order one from a dealership because the part is obsolete. (Yeah, It's pretty crazy that parts for a 6 year old truck are obsolete but the parts guy told me that some vehicles that are only 3 years old have obsolete parts)
I pretty much know that I can't find one because my truck has a manual transmission and most people that got a 2004 or 2005 Ranger with a manual transmission didn't get the power options.
How hard would it be to buy a dash wiring harness from a truck just like mine all except the transmission and then wire in my speed sensor that goes to the manual transmission? I know if that ties into the ECM then it's not doable. Plan B would be to take my PW/PD/PM connectors from my 3.0 dash harness and wire them into the dash harness that doesn't have the PW/PD/PM.
Which route should I take? I'm really between a rock and a hard place.

I found one in Pennsylvania! I can't wait to get this thing in my dash so I'll be able to put my windows down again.
I had no idea how rare these things are.
