    Hey guys, I need alittle help. As the topic states I have a 97 1500 with a Boss Plow. I have 95% of it hooked up and am just waiting for a few parts to come in to finish it up. I am having a small problem with the wiring. The parking light and turn signal wires I am unsure which to splic into on the vehicle half. The Boss instruction are very vauge and don't state which color to specifically tap. I hope someone can chime in and let me know which to splice. Thanks!

    Alright one more question. The negative cable, the one that's like 4 gauge. There's not way to hook to my batteries negative term. Can I just ground to the firewall?

    Not to the firewall, the plow would be "searching" for a ground through the body. I would suggest the frame or engine if the battery isn't an option. I would also consider getting a battery with both top and side post connections, that would make wiring a lot easier and more reliable
