    You can use everything except the headlamp harness and possibly the isolation module. You will need a new mount too of course. The relay, battery cables and control cable will all be the same. Don't forget that you have to reconfigure the plow for elevation. V plows are especially sensative to this. If you don't have it set right your cutting edge will wear round. You have to measure the height of the recievers and then look at the table for which of the four configuration options to set it at. There is also a secondary adjustment at the rear of the A-frame. Either a sliding wedge or the bolt holes. This is in addition to the main configuration at the end of the pivot arm / pivot pins.
