    Afraid not, '08-up is different from '07 and prior.

    In the beginning there was a '99 to early '04 mount, and then you had '04 late to '07, and then '08-newer.

    But with the current redesigned mounts there is no longer a mount specific for '99-early '04. They replaced that mount (as well as) the late '04-'07 with a current "one size fits all" mount to cover all '99-'07.

    So, if you have a '99 to early '04 and you want to swap it to a newer truck (up to '07) you really need to know if you have the first or second design mount to know if it will also fit late '04 to '07.

    '08- current is still all it's own...

    I think 08 will be like 94, the beginning of radical change as the manufacturers began to prepare for 2010 regulations. Over whelming computer control over all systems will require even more separation of vehicle aftermarket and factory systems. Weight and material saving will lead to even lighter frames and the "domestics" start to emulate the "Imports" in minimizing the front frame horns both for weight/cost savings and to meet crush standards.

    how can i find out what i have, does it say on it or do i have to call the dealer that installed it? The plow was new in 2007 when it was installed would that mean i have the new mount? Thanks

    look at page 3 ; your angle bracket will hopefully look like this. This is the newer designed lta03654c. If you have this one you are good from 99-07 ford superdutys. If you dont have that design all you need to do is go to page 5 and buy both angle brackets; all you need to do is switch the angle brackets to up to the 05-07 ford superduty. As stated before the 08-10 use different undercarriages. As long as you have a 13 pin wiring harness you only need new light adapters for the 08+ ford superduty.
