    Did you switch to them from the old style lights ? My newest plow has them, but the other truck I drive doesn't, wondering if it is easy & reasonable (I know it isn't cheap).

    If you've got a mm2 headgear you should have two holes in the headgear for lights.Unbolt your old ones and unbolt the ground wire from the motor.Install new lights and bolt ground wire back to motor.

    What about turn signals ? Hooking into wiring harness ? Etc. I don't think it is as easy as 4 nuts & a ground wire, I don't know if you use existing wiring, spicing into harness, open up rear of light & swap wires, or if the wiring is completely a different animal all together. My MM 2 with the extreme v is a 2 wire system, MM2 with standard Ez v is a 3 wire,

    Just did the swap to intensifires on EZ-V 3 plug system and it was just simply unhook old ground wire and 2 nuts, then bolt on new lights and zip tie the wire to the headgear so it didn't move around, no ground wire needed.

    The Intensifiers/Nighthawks don't use an external ground wire to the motor ground. They're very simple to install. Mount the lights, plug in the harness, put the back panels on the lights (3screws each). aim them, and you're done.
