    I have a 2005 Boss straight and might be trading for a newer Boss vxt with newer style lights, will my harness still Work? I know I have to swap controller. I believe it's the same only change is from rt 2 to rt 3

    Is your harness 11 pin or 13 pin? 13 works on everything

    As long as you have the 13 pin harness you can run anything.

    Count the pins in the plug. Rt2 and rt3 are the mounts, irrelevant. I had an rt3 with 11 pin on my old truck
