Help needed-2001 Dodge Meyer wiring

Discussion in 'Truck & Equipment Repair' started by NPMinc, Dec 2, 2010.

  1. I recently added to the fleet a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 SLT with an older Meyer setup on it. The guy I bought it from never had the plow lights hooked up as he only used it on his own driveway. I took it to my regular mechanic (who is not really familiar with Meyer, they sell another brand), and after messing with it for a few hours, and a few phone calls later was informed about the positve ground etc. He was also told that I would need to buy Nite Saber lights to work with this truck. Is this true? I was under impression a light assembly is a light assembly as long the proper adaptor kit was used.

    Can someone shed some light on this for me and help me with any information regarding part numbers for a meyers headlight adaptor kit etc or any other information on specifics for setting it up for this vehicle. Any and all information would be greatly appreciated> Thanks and happy plowing!

    On mine i put a toggle switch in the truck and then ran a wire from the lights and a wire from the battery to the switch, also added the inline fuse. That was the quickest and cheapest way to do it
  3. Yeah thats what I ended up doing this morning. I used the harness for the turn signals n marker lights, n put the the headlights to a 3 way toggle-down for low, middle off, up for high beam. Now just have to turn on the marker lights at night when plowing so I have rear lights. Gotta love a cheap solution. Now all i need is snow because a 4 truck fleet sitting isn't helping the bank account any!
