    I had a 1997 Chevy truck that was totaled due to someone sliding threw a stop. I hooked the plow up on to my 1993 Chevy truck, it has halogen lights and my 1997 had the old three prong lights. How do I convert the 1997 harness to my 1993 truck to make my plow lights work.:dizzy:

    What kind of plow?
    There should be adapters available. Check with a dealer.

    Got any auto mechanic buddies? They can look at the wiring diagrams and figure it out. Bribes like BEER or plowing their drives all winter go a long way.
