    Does anyone have instructions , or has done an install on the Fisher 1000 tailgate spreader? Shops here are charging 395 for install, and I think it might me as simple as running the control wires into the cab to the controller, and power to the battery?
    Can anyone give me some specifics? Id love to save the $400 if I can.
    thanks

    Very easy to do.
    I use to do my Western 1000 in about 20 minuets total time. Can't believe they want that much for such a easy job. Buy some tie wraps so you can get the harness leading to the back up along the frame under the truck.

    I'd email/contact Fisher and ask for the manual to be emailed to you, the “other guys” have their manual’s available on their websites.

    Just looked at the Docs, should be fairly simple, do the assembly, run 2 wires along the truck frame to the controller in the cab, run 2 wires to the battery. Hell, I installed a complete new audio system in my truck, with nav, and a backup cam (into the tailgate) ...this should be easy by comparison.

    Make sure to run a fuse between the controller and battery + Thumbs Up
