    hello, all i am able to put my hands on a very lightly used mvp 9'6" plow i have a 2006 f250 that i am putting it on and i am curious on wiring to control the plow. the plow has no truck wiring with it. if i dont need use a headlight harness i wont get it. i will wire my headlights seperately . i currently have a snow way plu on it and have no experiance with western but have a dealer in town now which snoway i dont, and the sno way is getting tired. so my overall question what part #'s do i need and also can some one tell me what the isolation module is for once agian i have no idea, and i have not searched much on this since i jsut spotted the plow today and have a few days till he puts it for sale publicly
    thanks in advance

    Ok? What about the mounting? The 2 hooks? How many chains? Is the lift cylinder independent if the motor?

    Since it just has two plugs, that would be and MVP+ (the current Vplow with the cutting edges that curve backwards where they meet in the middle, instead of having a rubber piece behind the gap). MVP+'s use multiplex wiring (the control just has a little 4-pin connector, instead of a big round 10 pin round connector).
    Truck wiring for an MVP+ should add up to about $525, and a control (if he doesn't have that) is about $350. The part numbers you would need for the wiring for a 06 F250, if you have H13 lights on the truck, would be 29049, 29070-1, and 44486.
    And since you only asked about wiring I guess you already have the mount figured out?

    yea it says ultra mount right on it, i heard that system is better then the unimount. so any one know if i can get away with not taping into my headlights or is it a must for the plow and isolation module to work

    How much for the plow?
    Does the plow have the mounting carton (truck side mount) included?
    If not add another $500 for the correct one!


    Your better off buying and installing the correct light harness' also!

    Better figure at least $1500 for the mount and wiring harness' for your truck to
    do it the correct way and add that into the price of the plow.

    thanks for all the replies from everyone, the guy sold the plow on me for 2700 but my buddy down in pa said another company down there has a mpv with the ultra mount for sale right now for a good price and that includes the wiring and mount for a 2003 f250 as well as the controller. can i make that mount work on my 2006 f250 and will the wiring be the same

    Only thing needed is the headlights adaptors. Not that salty

    Are you still looking for a plow. I have a western 9.6 MVP with all the wiring and mounts for sale. It is off a 2002 F 250.
