    I am having trouble getting ahold of wiring to swap my unimount from an 02' 2500hd to an 08' 3500hd. The mounts will actually swap, but not sure if the wiring will be needed. Any help would be appreciated.

    As far as I know they do not make a 2 plug harness for a 2008 chev U will need to convert plow to 3 plug and get a 3 plug harness for the truck. Not the end of the world just expensive. I have some truck harnesses if thats the route u end up going.

    Am I not thinking straight when I assume the plow just needs power and joystick controls, regardless of the truck its mounted to. Maybe Im off the mark, but I thought I could just connect it the same way it was on my old duramax. Let me hear it! LOL

    You can for plow functions but you won't get headlamps, that's why an Isolation swap & setup is needed.
