    2 questions here.

    1)I bought the factory switch that would be for a roof mounted light and need help locating the harness in the dash that this connects to. anybody know where this is located

    2) The truck is a diesel and does not have the plow package what do I need to install to bring it up to snuff.

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    You need to figure out what options you have. Do a little research based on the VIN#

    I know there is more than just the switch. there is a relay that goes on the pillar behind the drivers seat.

    If it is anything but a reg cab I don't think there was a plow prep offered. The weight of the duramax with additional people in the bigger cabs can overload the front suspension.

    Regular cab and Extended Cab/Short Bed could both be ordered with the plow prep package. Calhoun is right about the switch - you're going to have to run your own wires and everything to the switch. However, I would use a relay, because that switch is probably not rated for as many amps as a strobe package will pull.
