Wide Out fit on V plow truck?

    I found a used Wide Out. Can I borrow my buddies truck that has a Western V Plow frame and wiring to haul it? Will the Wide Out controller plug into the V plow harness and work? And will the Wide Out plow plug into the other end of the V Plow harness and work? Also, my truck is a 2008 Chevy Silverado. The Wideout came off a 2006. The truck side should still fit, correct?

    Thanks!

    Are both truck and plow multiplex wiring?

    If your buddy's V-plow is an MVP plus with the two plugs at the grill then it is possible. The problem will be getting the plow into the receivers. If the two trucks are configured differently because of different front end heights but that just means you will have to fight a bit with pry bars.

    Truckside brackets will fit, both are GMT900 frames.

    You should be able to use either controller also, v plow controller works on the wide out and so on.

    Exactly. my current setup is from 08 when I had a WO. Since then I had a MVP plus and now MVP3

    I should add it would also run a newer style straight plow.

    Aren't all Wideouts Multiplex?

    To clarify as Nick already posted, if the v plow truck that your buddy has is a multiplex truck (two plugs out the grill and a 4 plug controller plug in the cab) then the plows are all interchangeable. You can grab a wide out with that truck.

    Wide out, MVP Plus, and Straight Blades all have the same wiring now.

    To clarify, MVP isn't, the MVP Plus is multiplex, or fleet flex as they are now calling it
