    alright, i have an 89 silverado 1500 with a fisher plow on it. the frame is junk with most of everything else on the truck (whoever had this before me let it sit for 6 years). i just picked up a 96 silverado 1500 with hopes of taking the plow iff the 89 and putting it on this one. cant really find anything else online, can anyone help me out? thanks

    At the risk of being wrong, I think they're the same. As far as I know, all the 88-98 1/2 ton frame and sheet metal were the same.

    Good luck, especially if your new truck has A/C. Fisher did produce an engine driven pump for the Vortec, I don't know if you can still buy them new, or locate them used. The pump used a remote reservoir.

    BTW, if the plow on the 89 was not a Minute Mount, it's illegal to install it on the 96...........

    The frames are the same on from 88 to 98 like said above the only difference that you are going to run into is in 95 they moved the washer fluid tank from the fire wall on the passenger side to the driver side fender. A little difficult to mount the valve body under the hood but if you get creative then all should work for you...
