its not hard or expensive to pay an auto electrician to replace those fusibles. And you don't have to use OEM fusibles, they can use better parts to replace. It should only cost u like 50-100

My dad's truck is a 95 and still has the original fusible links. They're extremely reliable as long as you don't short anything out by working on stuff with the battery connected.

Mine are also all the factory fusable links. Treat them well and they will last.

I had the factory fusibles but hated how they were attached, so I replaced them and mounted them on the body

Default Bad Fusible link

Would a bad fusible link cut power to the interior? I lost power to my radio, gauges and dome light.

No, that would typically be a bad fuse. Sometimes they go out, but don't look bad.
