    It's possible but it probably cost you in the 2k range before your done.

    Nowhere near 2k - your wiring harness, plow and controller are all good. You need a mount designed for the 05, not un common at all and probably pretty easy to find used, assuming RTIII.

    New mount price is like 750-1000.

    You'll need headlight adapters also, those can't be that much 100-150.

    Used 500 plus adapters.

    I would find another dealer.

    Call BOSS tech direct and explain your problem. They will fix you up some how.

    It's perfectly do-able even if the plow is old enough to be RTll, as there were RTll mounts built for 99-07 Super Duty's. Problem is they're hard to find, especially used. But once that hurtle is tackled all you need is a set of headlamp adapters and you're good to go.
