    Alright western makes 2 Different Harness For the Trucks 1. Relay 2.ISolation. If you have a Uni Mount plow and can not find a Mount they make you go Ultra Mount with Uni Adapter. Fine well With the Isolation mod. The wiring is Diffrent with a 3 one battery and one Less on the Plow side. How Does this work? can you convt. A newer Ultra mount to Old uni wiring? or do you HAVE to Covert. Plow to NEW ISOLATION wiring?

    There's different ways of doing it depending on exactly what you have and what your attempting to connect to. But generally if the truck side is set up with a 3 plug Iso system, you'd change the plow side over to match.

    Some trucks (depending on the specifics) you can run the old relay 2 plug setup on the truck side....

    Just depends on what you have, what your trying to do, and if you can purchase what you need for what you want to do. :dizzy:

    It's easier and cheaper to change the plow from 2 plug to match the trucks 3 plug. Also with the ultra mount you can use the conversion kit and still go back to a ultra by removing the kit.

    They do use a 2 plug Iso system BUT, its the newer system for the MVP's plus/Wideouts etc with the multiplex wiring and plow control module mounted directly on the pump. Not the same thing as the old 2 plug relay systems.

    But yes like BM mentioned, you can convert a 3 plug Iso plow over to the older 2 plug relay system.

    No kits. You'd use the same plow side wiring that the older 2 plug relay setup would use..

    21294 Battery cable

    61438 light/control harness (9 pin)
    (or)
    61558 light/control harness (12 pin)

    Have to disassemble the lights to change/modify the harness.
