    Just purchased for our Sno-way Plows, Part # 99100969. I beleive its pretty new. Its a part that installs on your exisitng wiring harness. Once installed, when the plow is down, your vehicle head lights automatically turn on, When You raise the plow, the headlights turn off. Your regular plow lights work the same and always stay on as usual. When your plowing, your headlights and plow lights are always on, pretty good feature for night plowing. About 20 min install with no modifications to your exisitng system. Just a little FYI.................Works well

    Here's a pic of mine with the 4Sight. (plow down). Driving lights and Plow Lights replaced with SilverStars and Headlights with SilverStar Ultras. It's really nice at night!

    Here is a new Silverado with the 4 Site System. I have sold a bunch of trucks with the 4 Site this year and everyone has been very happy with it.

    All the lights on with the plow down.

    As soon as you hit the up button on the remote the truck lights turn off.

    The idea is good as you can always use more light...what are the battery repercussions if any? I would think the extra load could affect the charging system's ability to keep things "humming" along normally with no issues of dying batteries.
    I only say this because I have a single battery and at times my lights dim when raising the plow...

    I have a little 2003 Ford Ranger with the original battery. It does dim the lights for just a second when I raise the plow. But the amps jump right back up. I have had no issues with power so far.

    While any of the dual burn systems use more amperage then a normal system, you cannot help it, more lights, greater power requirements but the 4-sight turns off the second you go to lift the blade so it does not compete with the blade for available energy.

    Yes it will work on your truck.
