    1. If a utra mount has a hand held controller can you just unplug it and plug in a mounted box controller ?

    2. I am looking in to getting a 03 chevy 2500hd with a ultra mount that is the older style pro plus. If i wanted to could i purchase a newer pro plus that wester offers wings for and just put it on or will the wiring be different ?

    Thanks in advance Denny.

    No issues there Denny, it's simply a plug and play. No changes needed.

    No issues here either. The wiring won't be affected between the straight blades. It's only if you're changing to a vee or wide-out would you need to address wiring changes then needed.

    Not so fast. The early ultramounts where a two wire connector setup. The newer ones are all three wire setups for the straight blades. Better check this out?

    The first Ultra's were but it affected so few of the Pro Plus's it's not worth even mentioning.

    if your looking to just use the joystick would you be willing to trade the handheld for a joystick (if you don't already have a joystick)? Or would you be willing to sell the handheld controller? Just thought i'd ask. thanks

    The old one looks to be wired like the uni mounts with 2 wires and then the seperate plug with it think 9 but haven't counted yet. If I do buy this truck I already have 2 extra joysticks and would just through one of them in there. Where you located ? I should know buy the end of the week if i am getting it or not.
