HELP Removing Meyers plow wiring

I need help fast. I'm removing all the Meyers snow plow parts for my 99 F350 7.3. Got all the brackets removed. Now I need help with the wiring. I have a switch under the dash the switches from the plow light to the truck lights. My question is does the Meyers plow wiring harness replace the factory installed harness for the left and right head lights. I can't figure out how the factory wiring is connected to the head light without a harness between the lights .I'm leaving on a long trip Friday and wanted all the plow parts off the truck
Thanks in advance.

Never worked on a myers but I have owned a few Fishers and they would cut (older models)into the headlight harness behind the lights and the switch in the dash would direct the power to the truck or plow lights when you flicked the switch The newest one I had would plug the headlight plugs it to the harness and had plugs for the headlights so you didn't need to splice the wires
I don't know if this helps but I tryed

Unhappy

I've been working on this all day. It looks to me if Meyers has it's own wire harness that they substitute for the factory wire harness between the headlights. The plow has its own lights and the Meyers switch would either turn on the plow lights or the headlights on the pickup. The Meyers switch has 12 different wires going to it from the wire harness to the switch under the dash. The switch is just a toggle switch mounted and is does say Meyers on it. From the searches I have done it looks to me that there is a harness between the headlights that comes with the plow kit for the wiring.

sounds right just follow it to see where it cuts into the factory harrness and follow the factory headlight harness back to where it hooks to the myers harrness and the too should go back together

I bought the pickup used with the plow and plow lights hooked up already. I do not have the factory harness that goes between the headlights. I tracked the wires back and the color coding of the wires does not match up. That's why I'm thinking that when the plow installed the Meyers wiring replaces the harness between the headlights with their own wiring.
