    I am getting a used BOSS rt3 with an 8ft poly blade, but it doesnt have the undercarriage or wiring/controller. i called boss directly and they gave me the part numbers of what i need... dont really want to buy brand new on the wiring cause it's like 500... but cant find anything on C/L either. can i substitute another truckside controller/wiring ?? i have a 2002 gmc 1/2 ton and the part numers i was given from boss is lta04766 on the mount and stb15103 on the wiring.
    need help... winter is closing in faster then i hoped

    Just saying this, a straight blade and controller are probably cheaper then any other type of wiring out there. There are other options other then cl

    Used mounts are OK but used wiring is a crap shoot, corrosion, broken wires, rotted grill plugs, all issues older harnesses develop. Whatever savings you realize from used wiring parts could quickly disappear with one during a storm failure.

    The better and less failure prone your equipment is the more productive you can be.

    so you're saying $450 is not a bad deal for a wiring/controller for the straight blade? Where would you recommend I buy from ?

    No not bad at all. What do expect to pay?

    Try your local dealer. He can help your determine what you need, may have it in stock and you will have developed a relationship you might need when the snow is flying.
