unimount straight blade to unimount MVP

Discussion in 'Western Plows Discussion' started by P_Lo, Jan 21, 2010.

  1. I'm considering going to an MVP 8'6" from my 8' straight blade, both are uni-mounts on a '99 dodge ram 2500 v-10 engine.

    Other than a new controller is there anything else I will need? Will the wire harnesses be compatable bewteen both plows?

    Thanks

    Check with your dealer first. I know you can switch back and forth with a Boss only needing to change to controller. I thought Western was the same?

    Assuming it is a relay wiring system ,

    You will need to swap your control harness to a MVP control harness P/N 66610(kit) or 66790 (harness alone)

    You will also nee a set of V plow truck side battery wires P/N 66623

    The adapter to let you use a straight blade with V plow wiring is P/N 66760K

    Add your choice of V plow (round plug) controller and you will be all set to use both an MVP or a straight blade .

    If you need them , I beleive I have a used MVP control harness and Battery wires if it helps, P/M me if you want .
