    Helping a friend upfit a 1998 Ram 1500 with a plow. We're leaning towards a MM1 setup.

    We have found plenty of blades and are trying to figure out which one would be best (they're all MM1's or MM2's) based on price/condition and what not.

    I just want someone to verify that besides the blade, this is what we need to do to the upfit:

    -Blade, headgear, pump, and all plow-side wiring
    -Push plates
    -2-plug harness (vehicle side)
    -Isolation module
    -Controller

    Does anyone have any advice as far as the vehicle side wiring goes? Where to get the appropriate harnesses, etc...

    Thanks in advance...

    2 plug harness.... Well that depends on what plow. Older (more then 2years) are 3 plug unless it's a Vee or XLS, then its fleet flex.

    See its a1500 Ram, guessing straight blade also.

    I believe the one we are looking at is a 2 plug... And yes, straight blade...

    Actually, I might have to double check on that.
