    What do you mean by the frame mounts? I just have the two push plates that mount onto the bottom of the truck for attaching the plow to the truck...

    do you have a pic,I got a plow off a ford trk that I am trying to put on my 92gmc,but I need to know what the mounts look like,also how much do u want for them,I just thought I could use 2 flat pieces welded to pushplates and bolted where tow hooks were,any help would be great,and it prob wouldn't cost too much to have them shipped to me,just over on the ferry

    Nope wouldnt cost to much to get them shipped.
    I am asking $275 for them

    They look just like this


    They will mount directly to your 92 GMC and allow you to put your headgear and blade right on the truck. I just removed them from my 1996 and 1988-1998 is the same.

    May be able to do a bit better on the price considering shipping cost.

    Not uncommon on these frames. Had my passenger side fixed last summer & will have the driver's side done soon. I believe the shop used something in the area of 3/16" plate.

    right on,do u know if they used a mig welder or a stick welder? I want to use my mig but I can never get it to work right.it always keep spitting,I never get a nice frying sound,and then it seems like the wire gets jammed and I gotta take it all apart,it is a gas/no gas welder,I have gas hooked up,do u know what the problem could be?

    You probabally are not getting a good enough ground on your welder. Make sure you grind off a spot on your chassis to put the ground. What kind of welder do you have and what is the rated output? I have a Miller and it puts out 135 Amp at I think about 22 VDC. If You have a simliar output welder you will want to have it up as high as it will go (welding 3/16" plate you shouldnt have to worry about burning threw it) and your wire feed at about 3 or 4 depending on how fast you can "puddle". But my bet is your not getting a good enough ground.

    are you using a flux wire with the gas? That will make it splatter a bunch. I'd say .30 gauge wire with the Argon set at 35-40 psi. If your welding something thick, you'll need the heat setting close to max as well as the wire feed.
