    ok...so i have hid's in the truck...and they act stupid on the iso box....flickering

    so i am NOT using the headlight adapters at all for the plow....or i have to plug and unplug em every time i drop blade...

    i also prefer to use my hids as they go over the plow very nicely when dropped...truck is tall

    BUT......i need to be able to activate the low/high beams on the plow...with a switch...

    SO......short of a set of jumper wires to each headlight adapter isn't there a low beam and high beam wire "triggger" at the iso box i can tie too easy to make both light?..

    i ran a 3 conductor strobe wire to a double switch inside.....so if i can find a power wire and the 2 triggers i can just tie into all 3 right there and the switch will use the power wire to trigger low.high depending on what way i flip it.

    is it possible?.....i haven't jazzed with the iso box.......i know it's sensitive and stuff.

    does it require a lot of amps to make plow lights light?...isn't it just a relay in the box?..IE a low current feed?...how does the damn thing knwo left from right?..

    i really envy the BOSS where you can pick what you want.....but if i get a switch i am better cuz i can then do BOTH.....lol
