    Going to be installing my "new" 8' pro plus ultra mount on my 2003 chevy 2500hd.

    Any tips or suggestions? Going to have my uncle help me out on this but still could use any advice from you pros on here.

    Thanx in advance,

    Jared

    If its anything like the ford mount have a good drill and bits.

    Other then that it is a real easy install. Good luck and post some pics.

    No drilling...pull out your tow hooks they wont go back in...then put your rear 3/4" bolt in...then put the middle bolt in...and then the front 2 with the spacer Takes like 20 mins wiring will take longer but its not bad

    Not very hard...How i do it...

    Pull grille and headlights

    use the Velcro stick on things and stick your module to the top of the fuse box
    plug your light harness and grille plug into the module. theres a ground wire to plug in right there then as well and a reversible plug with a green and blue wire...If you mount the module there (drivers side) you put green to green and blue to blue.

    Run your headlight harness theres 2 splices on the drivers side one for park one for turn (There will be another blue wire in the western harness its for your DRLs you dont have to hook it up). then theres one turn splice on the passenger side.

    Mount your solenoid, run your power cable.

    You have one harness left at this point. it splits 4 ways. one goes into the cab (i run that last) another plugs into your light harness with an adapter. the third one goes to your solenoid and the last one is another grille plug.

    You should have a plastic cover that you can drill a hole through and use a grommet they provide to go into the cab. tap into to the fuse box inside the cab using the fuse labeled IGN 3

    ;)

    I made a bracket that mounts on the left side using the factory hood brackets for the iso mod. Yes you can re-install the tow hooks. Just grind or flat sand the mounting hole ends. Certainly you will have to raise the T-bars and install timbrens. Gain another inch by getting 265's.

    If you're running a 3 port Iso be sure to plug the headlamp connectors in the correct way. There's an "A" and a "B" side. You need the "A" side and be sure they're all correct.

    There not always A for chevys. You need to match the wires. The Western harness labels the wires. You need to match the western harness to the truck harness. But once you figure one out they should all be on the same side.

    They are for an '03-up classic body GM. Which is what he has.

    I did a GMC today that was B...Not sure if Chevy vs GMC makes a difference though...
