    I am about to hook up some snow plow lights on my 86k5. The kit I bought interrupts the truck lights and turns on the snow plow ligts when the toggle switch is tripped. I almost have this completed at this time I just dont know what wire on the dimmer switch is for the high beam and whitch is for the low beam. I have to cut these wires and splice them into this new switch. So the question is does anyone know what two wires I need to splice?

    thanks

    On my '94 Sub the tan wire coming off the hi-low switch is the low beam. The light green wire is the high beam. GM rarely changes stuff like this, so yours could be the same. Check it out with a meter or test light.

    Brochures and other stuff

    Go to wiring, and choose either of the 1986 options:

    Looks like Harry is right ... but see for yourself. :D
