Do I need new mount and wiring to upgrade from Fisher MMS to V Plow?

    I have an 02 F350 with an 05 Fisher Minute Mount 2. I am looking at a used Fisher 8.5' V Plow.

    I assume the mount is the same. But how much of the wiring is the same?

    Am I lucky enough that I just need to change out the controller for the extra v-plow controls or are is the wiring all different?

    Thanks for the help.

    Mounts are not the same. The 02 was leaf springs and the 05 is coil

    He means the mounts for the plow, a straight blade is the same as the v

    So the mount that is on my truck will not pick up the V-plow?

    Ok thanks for the help. Let me confirm I have this right.

    I will need the 26346 Harness (about $260) but my ISO is fine and my light wiring is fine?

    I also need the 9800 controller (about $350-$400) to add the v controls.

    Sounds like I got it?

    Thanks again
