    Excuse my lack of plow knowledge here but would a Fisher MM1 off a GMC Jimmy have any vehicle specific wire harnesses? Or is it just a generic hookup? It's going on a 94 Toyota PU. I have a new mount being shipped in, but the wires and joystick would come from the GMC with the plow. Will I have any swap problems?

    You'll need vehicle-specific wiring and push plates. The plow itself and the joystick should be reuasble, but all the wiring between them will need to be replaced.

    Check EBay and the forsale section here...I bet its pretty pricey at a dealer. The two Fisher dealers near me quoted me roughly $300 or so for the push plates and $1500 for the electronics (including joystick controller), that was not installed. I think the electronics are almost as expensive as the enither plow assembly if you buy them new. I was lucky enough to find a complete used MM1 8' HD with push plates, wiring and fishstick for my specific truck.

    I purchased a push plate off ebay. I will call the stealership now and see what the deal is for wires

    plow dealership told me to figure $500 for harness, relays and headlight wires. The plow would come with the joystick.

    Sounds like you're good to go then.

    Check Fisher's website for your particular application, all the mounting instructions are there. This is also a good way to make sure you have everything you need.

    Incidentally, you mean an S-15 Jimmy, right? Not a full size I hope.
