    Hello All,

    I'm thinking of making the switch next season to a Boss V plow. I'm going to go with a used setup and may start piecing it all together throughout the winter/spring.

    My question is this- does Boss use one style plug for all plows straight or V, or are there seperate plugs with more or less pins depending on the style plow you get? I'm well versed with Fisher and that I'd need a different harness, but I thought that all Boss plows could be run by just changing the controller.

    Thanks in advance

    The boss wiring harness will run ALL its plows. Just need a different controller.

    Nice, so basically any wiring harness will work, I just need the correct headlight adapters and a V controller?

    Just be sure it's a 13 pin harness, don't get stuck with an old 11 pin as they're obsolete.

    If you end up with a vee controller you can run either a vee (duh) or straight blade with it, no need to even change controllers if you need or want to run a straight blade at some point too.

    That is awesome. Is it a multiplex system or just all pins in 1 plug? This makes things much easier, time to start searching the classifieds.

    No multiplex on a Boss, the 13 pin connector does it all making them easy to field diagnose and repair with common parts if needed. Wiring components are more inexpensive in comparison to some brands as well.
