    hey guys i came across this 7'6" fisher mm1 for sale.. he was asking 1300 for everything. i only need the plowside since my truck has all the truckside setup already. he came down to 650 for the ploside. the only problem here is it is a two plug and my truck is a three plug!

    can i swap it over and still be getting a good deal? what would it take to swap it over?

    thanks for the help

    to convert the relay wiring straight plow over to isolation module, you just need to add the 26359 harness to the coils on the power unit, and either change the lights to the 8435's (or Western 64100 - same thing) or rewire the old lights with a 26377 harness.
    It's easier to replace the lights. then you can either use the old ones for spare parts or save them in case you want to convert the plow back later.

    brad96z28- the patch job is about 3-4" across the bottom of the blade right above the trip edge. it goes across the entire blade.

    nealybird- so i keep the main power harness. and add the controls harness (26359). and add newer lights? or connect the (26377) harness to the current lights?

    Looks like it would make a nice boat anchor

    For a good sized boatwesport

    $650 isn't a bad price if it all works, rams/lift piston are functioning and aren't leaking or flaking chrome, it's not rusted away to nothing and doesn't show signs of tweaked Aframe/Quadrant or a lot of welding repair. Drop another 2K into it and you will have a good looking reliable blade.:mechanic:

    Its up to you take the one with a patch job or the one that needs a major patch job or use it the way it is and leave some small trails of snow. You are not gona get much of anything for 650.

    yes the battery cable on the plow is the same, so you don't have to change it.
    and then either replace your lights with the 8435/64100's OR use the 26377 harness which would be a new harness for the lights that would go clear up into the light housings replacing the entire harness that joins the two lights together.
