A-Frame/Mount Adapters- A-Frame Needs to be 3" Wider

    I have a plow that I need to switch over to a truck that has a 3" wider mounting. A frame is 24", truck mount is 27".

    Does anyone know if fabricated adapters are available or has anyone made any to widen A-frame by 3"?

    I'm picturing some sort of an offset maybe bolted to the a-frame or maybe a collar/tube around the 1" square stock, and another piece of 1" sq stock run parallel with a spacer and maybe a longer pin to go through both.

    The other option would be to weld another two rings on the mount.

    Just didn't want to 'reinvent the wheel' so I thought I'd check here first. BTW- this is for off road/farm type use so the truck is not tagged , so the welder would need to make a field visit$$$.

    Let me know your thoughts, Thanks

    I Just added another sets of brackets on the truck side mount to make it work, in fact i only had to weld 2
    2 1/2" x2 1/2" 3/8" flat steel on the inside of the originals and now it will fit both sizes plow A-frames.

    Yeah the best/strongest prob would be the extra flat steel inside. Thanks

    weld 2 tabs to the bottom of the truck side frame to fit inside the a frame. You may need longer pins but tractor supply or southern states would have some that would work.

    Sorry, I guess you pretty much said that already
