    I am new here. I just purchased a Boss V plow, 8.2' RT2.

    I'm going to need to buy a mount for my truck, an 97 F250.

    I think i have mounts in hand, buying an RT2 pushbeam i found and a RT3 main mount. I will keep the RT3 pushbeam in case i ever upgrade. The RT2 mount is a 81-91 F250, and the 92-97 mount is RT3 i think.

    I'm more concerned with wiring, should i go with a more common 13 pin harness with an 11 to 13 pin adapter, or just get a used 11 pin harness?

    I am trying to keep my options open since i may switch trucks at some point. I have an 86 F250 that's in really nice shape, that i may swap the plow over to at some point, since the 97 is pretty rusty.

    Suggestions or comments?

    I would stick with the 11 pin. That's what I have on mine. 05 2500hd
