Can I use a 9 pin connector in place of an 11 pin?

    I am putting a fisher MM plow on my 06 Dodge 2500. I picked up a used 3 plug control module with most of the wiring. The truck side lights plug is an 11 pin, and got crushed. I am a tight budget and found this 9 min repair connector:
    My question is, can I just wire this 9 pin connector in, and then cap off the 2 extra wires? The plow side, bought the plow separately, only has 7 pins in it.

    it is what I need, but really did not want to spend $150 on a wire. I was hoping there would be another way around it.

    Get a wiring diagram from website, are all the wires used?

    4 pins are different size and therefore you won't get those to work.
