    Iam changing my plow from my 96 1/2 ton to a 2000 1/2ton chevy pickup.
    What will I need to change new frame for truck?
    Complete light harness or can old harness be used?

    Best bet is to go to your plow dealer for that information, yer gonna end up there for parts anyhow.

    I called three dealers two said need new lights and harness
    costing around $250.00

    one said only needed adapter plug at about $60

    also e-mailed meyers who said I would need new lights and harness

    just trying to find out why new lights and harness are needed.

    is there some new light system that doesn"t use a hot wire and a ground to power it ?

    maybe it is thermo-nuclear powered.(ha-ha)

    appreciate any one who could provide insight.

    If you have a 2000 silverado you will need a new sub frame, and my bet is a new light harness. They have changed the DRL from 96-2000 and the new harness needs that upgrade.
    Check with Bill Nero from CPW and he will set you up. I believe he said truck side changeover (sub frameand harness) runs about $ 500-600.
