    the frame stays on the truck with the lights. it doesnt come off unless u take everything off he truck including the lights. push plates are used on the minute mount's

    Fisher never made conventional pushplates for any Dodge trucks after '93 model year. Beginning with the new sheet metal in '94, only Minute Mount style pushplates were ever offered.

    possible first mm1 blade on old speedcaster stays on truck style frame work. speedcasters and mm1 could swap farly easy.

    In order for him to have done that, he would had to have customized something himself. In all likelihood, he probably put some type of quick release hairpin cotters or something on the a-frame pins so that he could disconnect his a-frame/blade, rather than disconnecting from the headgear like a normal MM would do.

    It's a conventional - no question.

    No, never. Only MM style from '94 model year and beyond.

    That is a minute mount blade but that frame is not fitting a 94-97 Dodge. I'd stay away from that. You need a 7.5' max for a 1500 truck. 6.5' is too small.
