    Currently have a 860SW want to switch to power plow, what do i need for switch? Im assuming the mounts are same. Both are pre DD. Do I just need wiring harness for power plow and controller ?

    Misread. Yeah, with the wiring harness you should be good. Might not be worth it though.

    You can buy aftermarket controllers cheap.

    Ill have to call up for wiring harness and see how much it is. I could get the plow for under 1k so only reason why im considering it.

    All you need is the controller. Wiring is the same on all the 00 and up HD plows.
