    I just bought an 05' F350 super duty, and meyer doesn't make an ezmount classic frame mount for it. I already have the plow assemblies, so I really don't feel like getting a new plow. I was told though, that you can get an 04' frame mount, and modify it to fit the 05' with modification. I was wondering if anybody has done this, or know somebody who has done this, and what all is involved. Any help would be appreciated. :gunsfiring:

    Man your kinda out where your at the mercy of the official plow part suppliers. Try talking to some plow installers and see what they know,buy them lunch? I am good at picking someones brain for useful info, the counter guys will just look it up on the computer and tell you no way/not available! It may just be a matter of drilling some holes or welding tabs on to get it to work. Just don't have
    "Clem the back yard welder" do the job.

    The only thing that you need to change is the mounting (undercarriage) frame, and for the headlights you need to get an adaptor.
    I just purchased a new "05" 350 and wanted to swap my setup off of my "03" 250, and the everything else will work but the frame and headlights.

    Good luck

    Great Lakes, could you give me the part #s on the frame and light adapter that I need to make this work? Was there any welding or other modifications needed? My dealer says theres no way to get a Classic Mount to fit on an 05?!!!
    Thanks!

    The part number is MEYE 17150, the headlight harness adapter kit that you also need is part number MEYE 07417.

    Let me know.........

    Please let me know. Does this frame bolt right up to the 05 Truck??

    I am also from PA and was told about the same thing about using my classic mount set up from my 95 F 250.

    What exact measurements do you need? Unfortunately I sold my truck w/ the moutning frame still on it (not thinking Id need it anymore!!!). Im assuming thats the measurement you need though??!
    I got quoted around $250 for the adapter, but now that I have to purchase the $550 mount that I just threw away, I figured Id come back to see what you guys came up with!
    Steve, Finnegan, Skout,... ANYBODY!!!!..... i NEED HELP!!
    Thanjs
