    I'm replacing my 97 K2500 with an 03 Ram 3500. I want to move my older 2-plug UltraMount plow (relay system) to the new truck.

    Can the relay system be used on the Ram or am I better off upgrading to the module setup?

    From what I can tell I need the following to properly outfit the Ram:
    63883-2 truckside mount
    29070 3-port module
    63411 truck side power cable
    26345 3-pin control harness
    26357 truck side light harness
    56131 motor solenoid
    22511 power wire
    29050 (HB-5 HB-1) headlight adapter
    28053 2-plug to 3-plug conversion (plow side)

    Is this correct? Am I missing anything?

    I would convert the plow to a three plug system.

    Yes you would need to convert it to iso, unless you just want to make the plow work and don't care about the lights changing over automatically. If you went that way, if you have good relay wiring, you could install it, but don't plug into the truck lights at all, and run the plow light wire to a toggle switch.

    If you do do it the 'correct' way, and convert to iso - yes, your list looks about right. But, you should get a 28055 kit instead of the separate 63411 and 26345. It will be cheaper. In fact, the 26345 is actually higher than the 28055, which includes it and the 63411 and some small connectors and stuff. Also, the 26357 will be in that 29050, so scratch that off your list. Also, you'll need a 29047 Y adapter.

    So your list should be 63883-2, 29050, 29070-1, 28055, 28053, 29047, 22511K, 56131K-2. And the 29050 will have the instructions for the wiring, and the mount will have it's instructions.

    If you are looking for used mounts, I have about 5 sets! (315) 868-0548 Boondocker Equipment.
