Need help with a Unimount wiring on a Chevy 2500HD

    Hey guys, I've been pouring over the site looking for the answer, but can't find it.
    I have a unimount 7'6" plow,with the 9 pin connector. I'm mounting it on a 2002 Chevy 2500HD, I DO NOT have the DRL module, and the wire harness I have for the truck has a bunch of loose wires, with no relays attached. It seems to me there is a part of the wire harness missing that would connect to the lights on the truck, I found something on Ebay, but I'm not sure if this is what I need, or if it would even work.
    This is the item in question:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=230396987407

    Basically, I need to know if there are connectors that replace the light connectors on the truck, or if this harness is just run with the 6 relays shown in the instructions on the western site spliced into the trucks light wiring, AND, can I do this without the DRL module, or do I need to buy this harness from ebay.
    Is there a way to make all of this work?? Will I need to buy the DRL module?

    Thanks a lot, I appreciate and and all info on this matter.

    the question is how much do you want to spend. if you have the hydraulic harness (with the white small 6 pin connector, the 2 big pin harness and the starter relay you can operate the plow. if you want you can purchase a relay style headlight harness (approx $100 - $150 from a western dealer (they may have to order it as it in not popular) or you can find the headlight wire in the harness and wire to a switch in the cab. the disadvantage to this is you would have to shut of your truck lights and unless you hook up a 6 pole switch you will only have low beams

    Thanks for the responses guys. I ended up purchasing the wire harness and dlr from a dealer, got it all done and running nicely.
