    Boss's instructions say to hook up the turn signal "purple" and "yellow" wire into the trucks lighting harness, but it doesnt say what color on the truck it is to splice into.

    Anyone wire one of these up themselves and know which color in the light harness i should be looking for? I used Boss's supplied superduty lighting adapter harnesses too.

    Actually, just to clarify on the plow harness....

    the PINK wire is the right turn

    the Violet wire is the left turn

    and the YELLOW wire is the parking lights....

    Sorry Ram, I can't help you on the truck wiring color's though... I don't have the diagram in front of me right now...if your not in a hurry, I can get them for you tomorrow though..

    Q you didn't get the adapters or pig tales??

    i thought there was no splicing necessary?
    just plug in the adapters?

    I have never had to do any splicing?

    The adapters only do the head lights... you still need to splice/hard wire the turns and marker wire...

    You can unplug the turn/park lamp from the truck and check with a voltmeter which wire is which. that's the safest way just in case the truck manufactor changed the wire colors.

    just use a test light,three wires,common ground,parking,and turn.

    I just put a sno way harness on an 05 the other day and I cant recall the colors either.I just used a test light.

    Turn wire should be:

    R turn = white/light blue
    L turn = light green/white

    Park light wire will be brown

    Boss sends a "scotchlock" type connector that clips into the wire and then you plug your harness into the connector you crimped on. All you have to do is find the wire supplying the turn signal and crimp into it. Usually very near the light itself. Without these special crimp on connector you would need to improvise.

    plug in

    My 05' had a place where the wires just plugged in. If you take the light assembly out it should be fairly easy to find. i had an 01' that was the same way, no splicing, no tapping into wires just plug & go.
