    I have a 1992 F-150 with a plow, wireing the electrical was diffucult because of the age of the truck and I did it myself. For the summer when I want to disconnect the lights is there an easier way to disconnect the electrical? I was thinking cutting the wires at the begining of the lights and using a male to femal plug. Is this a good idea? Any suggestions

    The male/female plug idea is excellent. We have a 1992 F-250HD that we cut the wires and did just that with. An auto parts store should be able to hook you up ith a 5 way plastic connector, male/female w/ pigtails (think mfr. line was Standard). You need high beam, low beam. running lights, turn signals and a proper ground. I soldered all the connections and used shrink tube, then used GOOD 3M electrical tape around all the shrink tube fittings to really connect it in a trouble-free manner. Top it off with plastic convoluted loom and it should be all set. One more thing in the off season plug up the connectors on truck side w/ something, I simply bought 3 packages of connectors and used the spares (wires cut off so as not to cause a short!) to plug in the truck.
