    Hi, my father has a 2002 Silverado, 7.5 HD Min Mount 2 plow. This weekend we're putting on the push plates (part #7160), and we ran into a problem with the rear two holes. We can't find a way to put a nut on the end of the bolt that goes into the frame. Does anyone have any tricks to mounting these? The front three bolts were simple, but the rear two are a pain. Any help is appreciated! Thank you!

    Mine had a long thin rod welded to the nut.

    Fisher sells those plates new with what they call handle bolts, they are half inch bolts with a piece of half inch flat stock welded onto the top so you can put them staight through the frame rail to the holes, Fisher dealer's sell them for about 8 bucks a peice or you can make them yourself if you have access to a welder.

    Ahh I understand now. I actually put them on using a magnet and snaking it into the hole. Worked like a charm. And no, this wasn't a new install. The plow is like brand new as are the push plates. Thanks for the help everyone!
