    I've got a Fisher minutemount homesteader plow for my Yukon XL, which has essentially bitten the dust. I'm about to get a 2004 Chevy Tahoe and am wondering whether the hardware that was installed on the vehicle, to which the plow attaches, as well as the wiring going into the compartment area, to which the joystick attaches, can be removed and reinstalled on the Tahoe. I'm not very mechaniclly inclined so unfortunately it's not intuitive whether it can be done or not. Thanks very much.

    T be clear, when I first got the plow, the seller installed the brace/hardare and wiring on the Yukon XL and what I'm wondering is whether I can have the same removed from the Yukon and installed on the Tahoe.

    For mount compatibility it depends on what year the previous Tahoe was. 2000 or newer yes, pre-2000 no.

    Thanks very much. My Yukon is a 2000 so hopefully the transfer can go OK.

    You're good on the mount then but you will require a headlamp harness change if it's running a 4 port Isolation module. Everything else (wiring related) is good though.
