    Alright this is what I've got: 8' Western straight blade some wiring and a truck. To be more specific the plow is going on a 1992 Chevy k2500. The wiring that came with the plow consists of the main harness that goes from the controller to the solenoid, lights and then to the the plow ( all truck side) I may add that the wires that are suppose to go to the lights have been cut on this harness. I also have both of the harnesses for the pump and the power harness for the truck side. My main question is how do i hook up the wires for the lights on the truck side?? I read something about a "plug-in harness". Is this what i am missing? does any one know what part number i would need for my truck? and what all comes with it? Thanks for you help in advance and Happy holidays:)

    2B/2D = Large square glass bulb

    LF/UF = 2 smaller glass bulbs side by side

    HB3/HB4 = long rectangular headlight assy with one plastic lense that hold hi/low beam

    figure out what headlights and B&B or i will be able to tell you what cross harness you will need.

    They're HB3/HB4's.....

    You need harness p/n: 61716 if it's a non DRL truck
    or harness p/n: 61586 with DRL's.
