    I have an 02 F250 Superduty. I'm looking at getting something newer and keeping the 02 as a farm/plow truck. Problem is it doesn't have a plow setup. I own a western ultramount and found the 02 F250 truckside and wiring on craigslist for a good deal. I took pics of my wiring and the craigslist wiring and am wondering if this will work or if would need to modify it somehow and how much that would cost. The first image below is the wiring from the craigslist ad for sale. The second is my wiring

    That c.l wiring is for the plowside not the truckside.
    Unless I'm.wrong your looking for a new truckside harness, and controller?

    Correct I'm looking for truck side controller and wiring. Ru sure you are correct bc the bottom pic is the wiring on my plow and the above wiring is from the craigslist ad. It looks like the craigslist will fit in mine. Particularly the two hole one. If they were both plow side wouldn't they both be male or female?

    Yea sorry it's my first time setting up a plow. Yes it has iso module and controller. My issue is two of the connectors look like they match up correctly but the ones to the left have more holes than prongs. Idk if that will work out not?

    The CL wiring will work. It will even work with the earlier 3 plug V plows. If you have a straight blade it only uses 3 prongs on the control harness. V plows use 7

    hmmmm. not quite enough info.
    yes they are both three plug isolation module wiring, but the CL guy has v-plow wiring (7 pins). It WILL work with a straight blade, but his control connector is going to be the big round screw on 10 pin connector, so you'll an adapter from that to the 6pin molex straight blade control connector. That adapter is a 66760K. maybe the dude has that already if he has had straight plows too.
    If he doesn't have the right headlight harness, you'll have another $200 approx for that. 2002 F250's could have HB5's or 2B sealed beams. HB5 would be more common, but if one of you has a real plain jane work truck, that would probably have 2B's.
    .. Oh I just read again, and you haven't said what truck you are looking to put this on. So, depends on what you go to. You might even end up needing a different module. So if you end up needing a module and a h/l harness kit, you'll be spending over $300 plus that 66760K adapter for $50 or so. So, unless the CL wiring is free, or unless it IS all correct for whatever truck you are going on, then probably not worth screwing with.
