    Yes you can. What you need to do is make a relay pack harness. If you hook up to your factory wiring, you will burn up your switch. I did this on my truck a few weeks ago.

    If you do ,you tend to get a lot of light kickback at you when the plow is up.

    You can wire a set of relays for each plow light, or run the plow light wires together, then to just the headlight by the battery and run off one HL. I did it this way to cut down on wiring.
