    Does anyone know if a Boss Plow Frame from a 2005 Chevy Silverado 2500HD will fit a 1990 Chevy 2500 without "major" modification???:mechanic:

    There isn't one common part between those two "totally" different undercarriages, except perhaps some of the fasteners. Where did you find this "conversion part" because I am not aware of any such thing.

    Maybe it's a kit to put the 05 Body on the 90 Frame....

    Okay "Ladies"

    I changed the "push beam support plates" and the angle bracket fits like a glove.... You need any help, let me know!!!:laughing::laughing::mechanic:

    I would like to see pictures:confused:

    It seems impossible to simply change the "push beam support plates" and bolt a 05 Chevy mount for any type plow on a 1990 Chevy nor visia-versa. :confused:

    Please prove my ignorance by posting pictures, if you have issues posting I'm sure any of the Computer gurus on here would be glad to do it for you. :nod:

    I'm familiar with both of these vehicles and have installed plows made by many different manufacturers on them, and something doesn't seem right. :confused:

    Have you installed the blade on the truck and had it properly perform all it's functions?

    comma,comma,comma

    Sorry boys I forgot the comma between the angle bracket and fits like a glove. I replaced both parts the push beam support plates AND the angle bracket.... Sorry for NO pictures truck is already gone.... My plow guy hooked me up right away... He knew exactly what it needed... You guys need to get a life.....

    Told ya he was missing a comma. :nod:


    So replacing three of the four components constitutes as a "conversion kit". :laughing:

    The push beams are the same width (34") and will interchange but once it's used for a while you'll begin to see WHY they're two different part numbers. ;)

    Using that logic, I can list that ancient 8 foot QuickSwitch blade as a MM2. Just needs a conversion kit.

    Well I bought the plow in 2005 for $4200.00 I used it for 5 years, sold it for $3500.00..... Now minus the $295 I spent in parts to convert or retro fit (however you want to say it) the undercarriage to fit the truck of the guy who bought it instead of $500 for a new undercarraige, for a net price of $3,205.00 I would say thats not bad. Considering I made tons of money plowing in the 5 years I owned it..... Now I have a bridge to sell you.... Interested???
