    deffinately get real lights, I got a ticket for using off road lights as plow lights. The judge was shocked to see the paperwork for those lights , but as he said thats canada and this is US different laws

    ok well that will depend on your truck and the lights u choose to get --- mine are as follows blue and green go to switch on dash then tapped into high beam switch to control plow / truck headlights, yellow is tapped into left turn, brown is tapped into right turn, and white is tapped into parking light--- then ran black wire to the radiator support for a ground
