    If this is a new MVP Plus it will be a two plug multiplex system. If it's a used old style three plug MVP it will only require a control harness and controller. Iso module, relay and the other cables are all usable. But if you are installing an MVP plus you will need a new vehicle side battery cable (without relay) as well as a control cable and controller. You can leave the old cables in and rig it up to run both styles of plow. But don't worry about the isolation module or headlight harness, they will work fine for both systems.
