    Cut and splice either into your factory harness, or go to auto parts store and get the right plugs to splice in.

    Do you by chance know what color wires I would have to splice into on factory harness?? I have three plug prongs that plug into the light cylinode then I have the one going out to the headlight.

    I don't know the colors off hand, but a test light will tell you easily. Yours will have a ground for each light and the sealed beams will only have one. That's why there's 3 wires on the 1 type and 4 on the other.

    yeah, just take the picture and then to post it when you do a reply scroll down and manage attachments below to post it. Just remember to resize it before you post it or it will be huge.

    plow wiring

    here is a pic of the back of my headlight and also my original heligen lights cylinode.The square block ones are from the plow harness and there is a female three prong one that went to my old truck and a male one. I used to have a main wiring harness box i plugged in the male connector into the main harness in the truck the female plug plugged into the three prong light. I have a couple more pic but it would only upload one at a time. I am pretty sure i know were to splice for the main harness on the truck the brown and blue wires. i am not sure what the wires do for sure
