    Hi guys,
    I've sold a 2006 Silverado but kept the Western ultramount plow setup for it.
    I now have a 1998 Silverado and plan to install the plow on it. It looks like I may need a different harness, can anybody confirm this?
    Thanks for your help,
    Steve

    All the wiring should be the same between those trucks. They both use HB3/HB4 lights.

    IF he has the HB3/ HB4 headlights. There was also a sealed beam option back then.

    I think you will also have to switch the common on the HB3/ HB4 harness. they switched in like 02 or 03 iirc

    Thanks for the replies. Yes, I have the HB3/4
    Headlights.
    Philbilly, can you elaborate a little on changing the common?

    It’s going to make a difference on what would need to be done depending on whether it’s 3 or 4 port headlight setup
