    I tried to have my 2004 ultra V switched over from the stock lights to the night hawk lights. here's the problem. The dealer said the way the plow was hooked up in 04' the night hawks can't be installed. All the controller hook-ups run through the same wire harness the lights are in, and with the night hawks, the controller is hooked with it's own plug. Heres my question. Is there a way to hook up the lights without rewiring the plow? I was thinking, splice the night hawks in to the old lights wiring.

    I think your dealer is full of it.

    I converted my old style 04 MVP to the nighthawks w/o any problem, they hook right up and no mods necessary.

    How many plugs do you hook up when you put your plow on? 2 or 3?

    See, that's the problem. Mine is a 2 plug hook up. 1 plug is the main power, and the other powers the headlights and plow controls together.
    They want another $500 to rewire the truck to a 3 plug!

    Bummer.....I'm still confused cuz i thought all the ultra mvp's had 3 plugs. All mine do.

    I know on the mvp plus they went with two plugs.

    What am I missing? I don't understand it.:confused:

    I don't know, that's just how they did it. I gotta tell you though, I'm kinda pissed.

    Yeah I'd be a little on the livid side myself.

    I Just Converted My Ultramount 2 Wire System To The Nighthawks. You Need Harness Adapter #29033 From Western. Adapter From Centralparts $40.00. The Directions In The Package Tell You Exactly How To Convert. It Took Me About 30 Minutes. I Can Fax You The Direction If You Need Them.
