    I am planning on migrating my Ultra MVP from a 2007 Chevy ( 2 plug, 3 port ) to a 2014 Ram.

    Any parts masters out there can help me identify the parts I need to order?

    Any issues or gotcha's to keep in mind?

    Thanks!

    You will need a new truck side mount and a headlight harness. Everything else will migrate. Go to Westrnplows. Com and select "quick match ". Answer the questions and then at the end record the numbers for the mount and headlight harness. Call your dealer and give him about $600, then it's just a matter of mechanical aptitude and foul language. Be sure to consider both the course and fine configuration adjustments. It's important on a V to prevent the cutting edges from wearing round.

    Have a look at the exterior glass of the headlight, look for HB5, H13 or some number like that. Most headlights have the bulb type cast into the glass. Quick Match would have listed the possibilities, sometimes they already know what bulbs it has and it won't give you any options but if there are two or more options just look on the headlight glass for one of those number and Bob's your uncle..... done.
