    Hey guys,

    Recently bought an 8' Ultramount to go on my 1994 F250 and it is an early Ultramount with the 2-plug wiring. I already have the mount I need and supposedly all the wiring but it was uninstalled poorly and I haven't tried to lay it all out and see what I've got yet so I'm debating just getting all new truckside wiring.

    With that being said, I assume now is the time to upgrade from 2-plug to 3-plug? I'm new to Western so please educate me. I previously had a Sno-Way on my F150. If anybody has part numbers etc. handy that would be awesome!

    This plow will probably find its way on a 99+ Superduty eventually so I am looking more long-term. I suppose I can make the wiring investment now...

    Thanks

    I just haven't checked out the truckside for completeness yet, I just saw some cut/loose wires when I was quickly going through all my mount and wiring parts. From the bit I've read it just sounds like everybody is a fan of the 3-plug isolation module setup.

    I'm in West Lafayette!

    Thanks

    Ok. I'm in Griffith.
    There should be 3 loose wires 2 on the drivers side and one on the pass side

    Alrighty. I'll check it out next time I get a chance. I'm working on finding my 2 missing mount parts (67874 & 67875 plates) then I'm moving on to getting it on and wiring.

    I'll revisit this as soon as I've got more of a clue haha

    yes, the first year or two of ultramounts were relay wiring like unimounts, with two plugs at the grill. there is relay wiring still available for the 94 Ford. It should be about $275 approx new. going to isolation module wiring would be alot more. the wiring for the truck would be about $550, plus you'd need to convert the plow, which would mean adding a little harness to the coils, and either changing the plow lights or rewiring them. so about $225-350 depending on which way you go there.
    so I would just stay with relay wiring. if you go to your 99 ford later you could still use most of that wiring again, and would just need the diff headlight harness.

    Ok thanks nealybird, thats some good info.

    Thanks both of you, I'll get this harness laid out within the week and see what I've got to work with. And I'll try and find a diagram. I've had good luck with Western's website so far.

    Thanks

    Went through the wiring I have last night with the wiring diagram and it turns out what I have is complete,every wire that was a splice into the turn/parking lamps had just been cut pretty short, and a wire into each relay has been too. But every color-coded wire is there and accounted for, so I'll just be adding where I need to to make everything reach.

    I got my Sno Way sold this weekend and picked up the missing mount brackets this morning so hopefully I can make some progress this week on getting this Western on and running!

    Thanks

    Got it all wired up and installed last night. My mystery plow that I bought in June worked! I was glad to see that. I did have to get the HB5 headlight adapters wiring. I had the DB2 style and didn't even notice :dizzy: until I went to wire it earlier last week.
