    you will need a new main harness. the v plow plug is different. there is an adaptor i believe, but i don't think you will find one.

    You will need a new control harness as No-Lead mentioned P/N 66790, also a new set of Battery wires as the V plow has an extra wire for the control coils on the plow P/N 66623 .

    You will also need a V controller if the new plow does not come with one.

    If you want to retain the use of your straight blade with your new V plow wiring you can use adaptor P/N 66670 , it will let you use a handheld or joystick straight blade controller with the V plow wiring.

    To buy everything new , probably around $450-$550 for the harness , battery wires and controller . Maybe more , maybe less if you can score a deal on this board with some used stuff.

    If I look hard enough I might have a V harness and battery wires , but I do not have a controller as my last one left last week.

    I still think you would be O.K with the plow , if it is what you want.

    Let me know if you want me to check on the wiring for you.
