    I have one on 2008 tundra and only issue as far is the plastic deflector up top shattered the second night out but now have a rubber one and should not have that issue again.Other than that i suggest when you pick yours up ,have installer show you how to take off and put back on with your help,it can be tricky for some. Goodluck

    PlowingMI try a 15 amp fuse in the controller wiring that truck has a little more draw on the fuse the wiring can handle it fine 99-2002 GM's have different wiring like the S10's

    I am driving down the road today and it is snowing. I check my outside temp gauge in the rear view mirror and it says 63 degrees!!!! I know this is not true, the only change was the addition of the plow. Anyone have any thing like this happen to them? any fixes?

    This is normal.It does it on my 02 Chevy and my Dodges before.Temp. sensor must be in the grill area and with plow on gives false readings. I've seen them read 100 before.Pay attention in the summer sitting in a parking lot running it will go sky high then too.

    Correct- temp sensor is right in front behind the grill or in the bumper. With the plow raised its reading the warm air from the radiator and obviously giving false info.

    I just had an hd75 installed last night. I ran it for 12 hours today without any problems and it is much much nicer than my previous western. I also had problems with my headlights but managed to fix it.

    I am now having an intermittent head light problem....
    When I shut the truck off, the head lights on the truck come on and the only way to turn them off is to manually shut them off by using the dome light switch.
    This has happened twice. not a huge problem but something that is annoying.

    Any ideas????
