    I'd say take that old mess of wiring off the plow and truck and get all new and everything will work like its supposed to. The blade isn't in bad shape. I'd be happy to plow with that thing.

    When the cutting edge and mold board meet ,time to change the edge,As for the turn signal the Boss ones seem to rot a lot.may have to replace the insides of it.

    Sorry for not answering the question. But instead if everything works other than the turn signals ...(you did say the headlight work right?) Just keep it the way it is. No offense since its all ready rigged and working add another 4 FLAT or seven way in the front of your truck and just plug it in like its a trailer! :nod:

    PSH! I would keep the blade the way it is. I keep all my plows outside. (All boss) If you want you can get a New Cutting edge on it. If you're REALLY fancy you can take it apart, repaint it and put new decals on it.

    Also as RBRONKEMA GHTFD was saying. It might be easier down the road if you rewire everything now....Because your plow never breaks in 90* weather its always on the coldest day! And with that No offense again... mess of wires its going to be hard to find the problem. Would i change it??? probably not...but then i would regret it.
