    I believe you need a 3 plug control harness and battery cable. Remove the plastic cover and module. If you want to be able to swap trucks and plows all around it would be easier to put both 3 plug and 2 plug in each truck.

    u need a 3 plug control cable 26345 and a 3 plug battery cable a solenoid and a 21' battery cable and lastl a control harness adaptor and install them then depending on which plow u want to use u'll need to do a little unplugging and plugging depending on which module u have heres a link of the different setups schematics so ull see wht u need to do easier than explaining it

    Idk it says "I just picked up my new plow truck". Good possibility your correct. If so just convert the 2 plug plow to 3 plug.

    The truck and new plow has to be Fleet Flex. There were no relay style two plug X blades. That being said, you need to just wire the truck for both two plug and three plug systems. It's not bad to do, and it's much simpler and cheaper than trying to convert the three plug plow to fleet flex... That's not a practical conversion.

    sorry, i was a bit vague. it was dark out by the time i got home and am exhausted. didnt have time to look at it closely. I have one truck set up for the three wire blade, and this new truck set up for the new 2 wire blade. I d like the new truck to be able to run both plows if needed.

    they never made them from the factory that way BUT although unlikely It could of been converted to 2 plug relay some time during its life since OP didn't specify .....

    since you guys say to just wire the new truck for both 2 and 3 plugs. I just need to unclick the fleet flex box in ematch to get the right harness and then splice it in?

    Fisher makes a kit to add 2 plug wiring to a 3 plug set up (truckside). I just did one for a buddy.

    You've gotta add a three plug control harness, relay, and battery cable under the hood of your fleet flex equipped truck. Then you build an adapter to join both control harnesses to the module via the lighting harness. Or you just swap plugs under the hood whenever you swap back and forth between plows.

    gotcha.....dumb question would it make more sense to just convert the three plug truck and plow to fleet flex and be done with it?

    You could convert the truck, but converting the plow is pretty cost prohibitive, in my opinion.
