2008 F350 2wd Dually Mount Question?

    I have a 2008 F350 Dually Cab/chassis. I also have a Western Ultramount plow side sitting around. Does anyone know what mount will fit on this truck? Western does not show a mount on their web site due to the 2wd. I am planning on putting a vbox on the frame and figure I might as well have a plow on the front. Let me know if someone knows if the 4x4 mount for this truck will fir the same? Thanks

    I want to say no, as an 08 350 uses a twin I beam suspension and not a solid front axle like a 4x4. The front end will not stand up to plowing and you will be over the legal limit.

    Im not too worried about the weight limit. Im over on my chevy too but that doesnt really concern me. I just want to find an actually Ultramount bracket that will mount up to the truck

    Again, I would still think not because the brackets were made to line up with the SFA, and not the TIB. Don't quote me on this though, but I am pretty sure it won't fit.

    Are you high? He wanted to transfer a mount that fit a 4wd truck to a 2wd truck. I said I think the brackets won't line up because of the different suspension designs and that the truck will be overweight. What part of this do you not comprehend?

    Easy now. I think he just meant that I really want a western mount to work on this truck. So your answer wasn't what I was hoping for

    Have you tried your local dealer at all? If you are hell bent on it, I think you might have to fabricate something up.

    Yes I was high! My reply wasn't disrespecting you one bit. I know that he really wants this truck set up soon. Therefore he didn't want to hear Western doesn't make a mount. Lets not be so quick to jump on someone's a$$!:waving:

    Sorry. Text is emotional vague. Makes things hard.
