    Hello everyone, I purchased a 1983 1/2 ton chevy k10 pickup off ebay and need to replace the plow lights according to a mechanic. It is an older style fisher plow called unit G. I've looked on the fisher site and on ebay, but cannot find the older style lights. Should I replace them with newer style fisher's? Thanks.

    Plow Lights

    Welcome to Plowsite cward05!
    You could use just about any of the universal replacement lights that are out there.
    If your looking for used lights check out e-bay or ask around, may be one of the other plowers on the site have something you could use.

    Thanks guys! One last quick question. Do all trucks need a balast or is it just for added traction? If so, how much weight do I have to add? As said above, I have a '83 chevy k10 1/2 ton pickup. I am going to most likely do just my driveway, but it a pretty steep slope. Thanks.

    Ballast is for traction but more to level the truck out front to rear.

    Just remember when plowing on steep grades if you get stuck it is easier to back out downhill than it is to back out uphill.
