    I have a 2002 2500HD with a unimount. I am looking to put a set of nighthawks on it. Is this possible? If so what do i need to do?

    New harness and bracket mod.

    Find out what control module you have and buy the appropriate control harness. There may be some wiring to do to your parking lights, and the nighthawks have two mounting studs instead of one, so some modification to the headlight frame is necessary.

    Look under the hood and see if you have a douglass dynamics isolation module, the little black box that controls your lights, and get that number.

    No Isolation system on the Uni's. They were all relay setups. ;)

    Sure you can still do it. Just use the existing wiring harness on the plow side and tie it into the new lights.

    Being a Uni you'll also need to fab up some type of new mounting brackets as the Uni light brackets are not spacious enough to directly mount the Night Hawks onto. Have to first weld on some additional material..or start with a new set of light mounts from scratch.

    Western makes brackets for this application. Just bought some myself, cost $58. #28340 Headlamp Extension Bracket Kit.

    They sure do but you can fab it up for considerably less. :)
