    i just took delivery of our new GMC and it has plow prep group: dual altenators, winter cover (front), wiring for roof mounted beacon, skid plates, and wiring to the front for plow lights

    my Q is where is the wiring for the plow lights and what do you have to do to get them up and runnin

    i ran into similar trouble finding wires on the new body style. I went to the local dealer cuz I wanted to know where the wires for the beacon light ran through the truck, and they didn't know. Information still seems to be scarce for the new style. I don't remember mine having plow light wiring listed for the plow prep? I would assume a socket right near the actual lights. I'll look in the morning as we are putting strobes in.

    i looked today and it seems to me that they are right behind the lights, that's where everything is tied in. The lights are a )*(&$5 to get out.

    here is how you get to the beacon wires

    take a pocket knife and release the clear dome light lense

    remove the 2 torx screws that is directly underneath the lense

    pull straight down on the fromt of the console and it will "snap"

    and the light wire is the green+ and the black-

    i just ran mine through the rear 3rd tailight

    B&B helped me on the headlight harness
