Night hawk lights on a MVP

    I have a MVP plow with the old style head lights. Can I purchase the new Night hawk style headlights and swap out the old ones. The plow is a three plug set up and has the Iso box. It is only 2 years old. The tower part where the lights mount has the two holes in it for the new style head light. My main concern is that it is a direct swap out and that I do not have to cut and splice wires. Plug and play would be nice.

    Thanks for the help

    The 3 plug plows have one plug dedicated to the lights (11 pin i believe) so all you have to do is bolt on the new ones, they are a stand alone unit with their own plug. I was thinking of making the swap myself, let us know how they look!

    Definitely worth the swap and $$$. no splicing or cut needed. direct bolt on and plug. I did it to mine and could believe how nice these lights performed. Good luck!

    Could I do this with a Unimount plow as well? If so I may be interested in it. How much do a set of the lights cost?

    for a unimount you will have to make extensions for the light brackets, because the nighthawks have 2 mounting bolts. If it is a 2 plug style (not converted to the new 3 plug isolation module style) you will need to cut and splice wires. These lights seem to run in the low to mid $200 range, depending on where you get them.
