    My 2005 gmc 4500 has a minute mount 2, 3 plug plow.I just bought a xls and whatever harness/controller to run off/with the existing truckside wiring.(haven't opened box yet) Can I leave the mm2 wiring and just move some plugs in the module if I want to switch plows? Open to options/ideas.Can the mm2 plow be rewired to accept the fleetflex 2 plug system? Thanks

    You can run both systems on the same truck. I suppose you could rewire the mm2 3 plug plow, but you need to add the plow module (That's why the new ones have the weird looking covers).

    Haven't looked at new plow yet,should probably check it out so I can be sure what to ask! Never really checked into the fleetflex setup.

    You need to add a second control, control harness and battery cable. There are a few threads on this setup. Some one was making an adapter to have everything hooked up at once or you will need to swap some plugs under the hood.

    Thanks,I'll see what they sent me and see if its worth the trouble.Might just sell the mm2 mc 10'.That plow has been a beast, only had to replace motor and pump once,strongest plow I've owned,still looks like new!

    I sell the adapter if you decide to run both

    What kind of adapter do you sell? One that plugs into a 3 plug truck and makes it 2 plug? Info and price?

    All set on install.Once I got into it was very simple.Didn't realize that the existing iso mod was still used.Also the light plug of the 3 plug system becomes the 2nd plug in the 2 plug system.Only had to plug in new control harness into the same plug that the old 3 plug system was plugged into.I can see where the y adapter would save from switching plugs back and forth.How much do you sell them for?
