    Got a "9" pin 2 plug Unimount (1999 model) that came off a 2000 Dodge Ram 2500. Want to mount it on a 2004 Dodge Ram 2500, and have been told by local dealer that I need about $1,000 worth of harness and other items to make it work! (already have truck mount) Does that sound right just to switch to a 2004 model truck?? Can anyone suggest a cheaper way?

    Sounds close, I converted my unimount and you will need the iso module and all the truck side wiring. You will also need new light harness, and control harness on the plow side as well. I know know the control harness for my 96 gmc was 230 alone, and I think the harnessfor the truck side lights was almost 200 I would have to look because I bought a little at a time.

    I have a lot of cheaper ways. I run 2 plug ultramounts on all my trucks as my backup plows are uni-mounts and want to be able to switch in a hurry. I have my o7 Chevy on a 2 plug. Also, I just like the concept of $6 relays not an ISO box that you have to pay $100 everytime you need a new one.

    I can give you a wiring diagram of the harness that I make out of the harness that you have, but you need to have a fair amount of wiring and electrial knowledge to understand.
