    I have a 7.6 standard from 2007ish 13 pin on my 2001 2500hd that I want to swap to my 2002 1500. I was gonna get a new 8ft for the 2500 and put a new harness on the 1500.

    So basically my question is, are the 08- harnesses compatible with 08+ plows and visa versa?

    I only ask because I see the new harness kits listed with 08+

    The difference is only the dual burn feature. An 08+ harness will have the 5th relay for it, 07 and prior won't. But they both directly interchange.

    Great, I was hoping it was something simple like that. Thanks B&B, this forum would be lost without you!

    Happy to help.

    Something else I'll add for your specific truck already equipped with the pre-08 harness too; you know you can make it dual burn on both the truck and plow with nothing more than a short piece of wire, a few wire ends and a couple minutes don't you? Google " '99-'02 Dual Burn info " and you'll see how easy it is.
