    The op we bought from said he'd help install on new truck but split as soon as it was dropped off his.....and I was'nt payin attention to him un-wiring it n now Im sorta in the dark
    PS: been to the western site ....it looks very helpful ( posters) .also found out .it's a ULTRA MOUNT type plow ....not sure if that affects your in-put re wiring though...

    THANKS FOR RESPONDING

    Yes .....It's got the detachable recievers so I'm pretty sure it's an " Ultra "

    checked the e-bay links .....the harness he had has the BLUE connection fitting

    Update :

    Got the truck side mount bolted up and the bumper back on 2day...........whew, took longer than we thought it would.....(rookie wrenchers + drilling n grinding)......now , the wiring harness.....
    1. The lights are actually GLASS / single bulb type............ not plastic as stated earlier, so we may need the 2b headlight harness 29051 ?
    2. The op did not provide me with an "Isolation Module" ..........could he have been operating it without one ? cuz we saw it working before the purchase.
