    I have an '04 f150 hritage(old body) and I want to add aftermarket plow lights for my snowbear plow. Do I need special adapters for the lights or just use a toggle switch and tap into directions for directions to work. I'm planning on getting Grote or Peterson light kits. Any help would be appreciated and please, no bashing on my snowbear as it works perfect for my application

    I just run a 3 way toggle switch....1 pos=low beam 1 pos= off and the other pos =high beam
    Tap into the blinker and marker lights and you will be good to go.
    Put an inline fuse in the power wire to the toggle switch

    thanks,I'm not convinced I need them as my snowflap on top of the blade is what blocks my headlights when driving down the highway,but when plowing and driving slower ,the vehicle lights work fine. Thanks again

    Lower the plow a little bit on the highway.
    You will also get more airflow to the radiator too
