    Hi everybody! I am new to the snow plow scene. I just bought a 8'6" Unimount western straight blade, plow only. I'm curious as to what wiring I will need for the truck and what controller I will need. The plow has a 9 pin plug (atleast thats what I counted) and of course the 2 pin power for the pump. I paid $750 for the plow and thought that was a pretty good deal. any help would be greatly appreciated!Thumbs Up

    well there are lots of harness's out there to pick from. youd need a 2 relay set up most likely, or that's the easiest set up to go with. depending upon your truck. since you didn't mention what its going on we cant go any farther theres 2 controllers a box and a handheld

    You could get away with the 2 relay setup. Look up any of the sponcers and they should be able to help you out

    That mount is very hard to come by in my area. I have yet to see one for sale on craigslist.
