    I am confused about the following things...

    You have a green power wire #1 but that was cleared up with Markus and his STOP. I read it like 4 more times and got what you meant.
    salt spray is getting to your relays on a 2015 truck #2
    why you have relays on a 2015 truck #3
    how does the posi track rear end work on a Plymouth #4
    that is where I would start on the level of confusion

    What's confusing about relays on a 15? Or the fact that they may have corrosion from a prev installation?

    You're absolutely right Philbilly. A relay system has no business being on a 2015 truck.

    lol guys I had the harness installed by a boss dealer, the only thing I kept from the previous truck was the plow and controller, all wiring was new when I bought the truck sorry for the confusion.
