Installation..

    Well, the fisher dealer is getting the parts needed to install my mm1 7-1/2' fisher onto my 2004 F-150. The two plug wire on the plow will be upgraded to 3, so the entire setup will be three plug. The headlights on the truck are h13. I'm told I will need to change the plow lights for this setup. The dealer will have all parts within the week. My question:

    I want to install this myself. How much work am I looking at? Is the electrical plug & play? How difficult to notch the bumper to accept the push plates?

    Thanks;

    Jake....

    I would say you'll spend 6-8 hours installing this plow if you have the correct tools and strong mechanical skills. Most of the wiring is plug and play, you will have to tap into the turn signal lamps and running lights on the truck, you will also need to find a keyed power source for the control end of the plow. As far as notching the valance on the front bumper, measure twice, thrice and four times then cut, I typically use a 5" thin metal cutting blade on a 5" electric grinder, does a nice straight clean cut.

    Good Luck

    Thanks for the info. I have done one before but wasn't sure how much different the newer truck would be. Didn't need to do the bumper notching before. I'll take your advice and measure a lot before cutting.
