    I've got a newer (2008 29 Series I think) Snoway plow that has lights with a rectangular light plug. The trucks I have both have lighting wiring for the older style plug ends. Does anyone know if Snoway makes a simple adapter for this. I want the old style plug ends ( the one on the left) on both trucks so I can use either of my 29 plows on both trucks. I posted a couple of pics to show the mismatched plug ends.

    It is not quite as simple as cutting off the ends and swaping them. The EIS system is totally different then the old relay system. You have to change harnesses, adapters and add a relay on the truck and swap harnesses on the lights. If you are going to change then I would change the old unit to the EIS system. No consumable parts the plug ends are repairable and much less susceptible to corrosion.

    Here is a pic of the rest of the wiring I got from this guy who had the 29 series on a 2008 Silverado 2500. If I want to install this wiring setup on my 1996 Silverado I'll still need some adapter end peices to plug into my existing HB3/HB4 headlights. Then do I still need to scotch-lock the yellow wire on ones side to the parking/turn signal lights and the grey wire on the other side. I'll need an installation manual pdf file for this with whatever adapters I need to buy.
