    I just read through the installation manual of the 8100PP. Not rocket science. Very straightforward. I'm leaning towards buying the plow and doing the install/assembly myself.

    The truck is an 09 Chevy 2500HD. My question is on the wiring harness. Is it plug and play factory and model specific or is there cutting/splicing involved. I didn't see that in the manual at all.

    The new ones with the iso module are close to plug and play. You need to splice into the running lights and turn signals.

    When hooking up the headlights there is an A and B side. Make sure you have it the right way.
    Have fun taking the headlights out. They took something very simple and made it harder.

    On the 09 Chev there is a 10mm bolt between the bumper and the fender that you need to remove. It is to the side of the signals.
    Don't you have to remove the drivers side lights. I took the air box out on the passenger side on my 09 GMC

    Ive tried it both ways and if you are splicing the wires properly with butt connectors its far less frustrating to just pull the headlights out.

    That's kind of a contradiction...splicing the wires properly is to solder them, not use a butt connector! :jester:

    Properly was as opposed to using those wretched little blue scotch locks that hack installers use.
