    Hi I have added a new truck to the fleet and I am thinking about wiring it up for my polycaster just incase I have to throw my sander in it

    How much am I looking at to set it up? Also what is the cost to have it installed?

    I'm making a trip to langs in the morning for a whole bunch of parts and would really like this too if it Is not too expensive

    Looking like I might need it in this truck for a storm coming wednesday.. my main truck with the wiring in it already is still in the shop with the bed off waiting for the flatbed to arrive..

    Should I attempt the wiring myself?

    Check Fishers website for installation instructions. http://library.fisherplows.com/publications.asp?cat=397 Looks like the hardest part is deciding where to route the power cables to the rear of the truck. Positive and Negative connection at the battery, and one power connection in the cab for the controller.

    I did 2 recently and it wasn't that bad at all, basically the same as a multiplex plow plus tapping the brake light.

    I just bought a polycaster 2.5, where do you tap into the truck to get the brake light lead? or do I just use one of the wires to the dump bodies brake lights maybe?

    You need to get the high mounted stop light wire or the stop lead at the connector under the bumper.
