    What plows and truck side mounts should I look for.can take hands off steering wheel at 70 and close eyes for a few and truck drives it self straight with no shakes. I tell my kids to save money for gas. Will be almost 10 bucks a gallon by the time they drive. Cheers.

    I can tell you for sure that the mount is the same from 96 - 2001 I have this range of Dodges. 95 should be the same, But don't know about a 94. I have a BOSS V on a 96 like that. Turns nice and tight.

    Unless you are a experienced hydraulic tech you need to increase your budget.

    whatever plow it is keep it below 600lbs and run a counterweight.

    Check your front end (ball joints, hubs, steering components) very well before installing plow, that vintage Dodge 1500 can be a decent plow truck, spend your $500 bucks on heavier front springs and components while you save the $2500 any decent ready to use plow is going to cost.

    Well - if it has been on there for some time you will need a torch and a impact wrench. It would be the easiest to cut it off and buy new bolts.

    Well I went and bought the plow tonight and removed it. Took 2 hr to get every thing apart. Will get back to update when I get plow installed. Seems like a great design. Thanks again for the help. Cheers. Wish me luck.

    The plow I got is a old fisher mm sehp 7 1/2. Included everything I need I think? Mount,wiring,control and plow. Just got done printing out mechanic manual. Will get pics of plow soon. Wanna get mount installed before wiring harness. Any other tips? Thanks again.

    Welded up hood latch. So no more ropes holding it down. Called b&b truck about a new truck side bolt kit.some of the bolts had long peices of metal welded on them to fish. Or will track um down and make. Dan from b&b said people usually never take the truck side frame off.

    Parked next to a SLT 2nd gen short box regular cab and noticed my sport was sitting higher.it does not have off road package. Those bolts with handles are like 7 bucks a piece. Thinking about installing some bolts and welding the bracket to frame.got some picks of frame and plow.kinda dark. And a picture of bling it on. Guy said it goes a buck thirty.
