    Hi, I'm pretty new to the forum, but have been helped by many of the posts here. I'm in the process of switching trucks from a 94 Chev 3/4T to a 02 Ford 350. I have an 8' UniMount ProPlow - two connectors - and have been told that the harness for the plow will work, but I need to swap out the light harness. My dumb question is which headlight do I have, the 2B or the hB5? I'll attach a photo.....Thanks in advance for your help.

    Just need a 61591 plug in harness for your HB5 lights.

    Thank you! Just curious what the 2B and the HB5 stand for. If there is a reference somewhere I'd love to know.

    2B's are the old glass sealed beams...and of course the HB5's are the composites with a replaceable bulb like your truck. The letter/number designations are just different ways to identify the various light styles. If you dig around the net a little I'm sure there's a chart somewhere showing examples of the various styles.

    Hey B&B, I was reading your posts on diabling the DRLs, off topic but wasn't sure how to email you direct. When I get to the BCM in my 2000 Silverado, do you cut the white and grey wires and splice in the resistor ?

    Assuming you're referring to disabling the auto headlamp function, cut the two wires, re-connecting them with the resistor. Need to pull the DRL relay to disable those if you wish also.
