    8' Western Unimount pro plow. Lights work, plow works fine (been plowing until I took truck off road a week ago). Hoses just replaced last year, as well as one of the harnesses. Also has shoes, they're just not on it in pics. Includes controller, DOES NOT include mount, available for an extra $300. Asking $1,300.

    What year is the plow? I have a 2007 Dodge Ram 2500, how much would be involved to get this plow up and running on my truck?

    John has it right....not to kill the possible sale but you're better off finding a ultra mount for your truck.

    It's not difficult to built the frame for the carriage and a faceplate to mount the unimount to, it just comes down to measuring another one, cutting and welding a faceplate together.

    The stock unimount brackets for the frame were not very heavy duty in the 1st place as it's not a commercial plow unit.

    It's better to remake all the brackets and a-frame with 3/8 steel or better.
    Never forget to add xtra bolts to the inside of the carriage through the frame it adds alot of support to the carriage/frame.

    I built my own a-frame and plow mount/carriage in about 4.5 hours.
