    I bought a 91 150 with a fisher Minute Mount this summer for 600 bucks, and now i wanna put the plow on our 96 Chevy 2500, I bought some push plates, but i'm not real clear on how the push plates moutn to the frame? i havent' had the truck up in the air yet, probably tomorrow or saturday i'll take it to my uncles garage and lift it up and see, but I was just wondering if anybody has any pics of how the push plates mount? i can't come up with anything on fishers site, and our local fisher guy isn't exactly the best guy to see, likes his mark up:D alot... I imagine when i get the truck up i'll see better how they mount, do you have to take the tow hooks off?

    thanks for any help

    Very easy to install. If I remember right 3 holes to drill on each side then bolt it in.
    Remove the tow hook and they have a plate that slides in where the hook comes out of.

    Make sure you set them right. There is a cetain distance they need to be set apart from each other. I used two washers on each side to bring them together the same amount.

    thanks, that could have caused a little bit of a problem... do you know the distance? if not I'll just go out and measure the plow...

    Thanks again
