    Hey all, I'm new here and have a quick question. I bought a used 7.6' Western Unimount plow that came off of a 2001 2500 Ram. I'm putting it on a 2001 Ram 1500 Sport. The plow is complete with mount and harness, but it has the 62917 harness for dual HB1 headlights. My Sport model has the quad HB5/HB1 lights so I'm wondering if I need to buy the harness for the quad headlights or if I can just run the one I have hooked up to low beams only. It wouldn't bother me to not have hi beams. I didn't realize the harnesses were so expensive. Thanks for the input.

    you would need the correct light harness or you wont have high beams. and make sure your harness has 4 relays and not 2. i made this mistake and my lights didnt work only the plow.

    Thanks for the reply. The harness I have has 4 relays but the one I'm "supposed" to have has 5, one for the extra high beam relay. I'm thinking I'm gonna get some plug ends and a relay and just modify the harness I have. The pin-out is the same for connection to the plow side harness.
