    I just purchases a used boss v xt 8.2 and the mount it came with was for a newer chevy half ton. I know theres a difference in the mounts around the 06 to 07 years. My question is does anyone know how to tell the difference to determine which years it fits so I can sell? Any input is appreciated

    99-06 and 07-current 1/2 ton mounts are very different in appearance so it isn't tough to tell them apart.

    Thanks B&B its for a 99-06 halfton. Do you guys do any trade ins? I need a mount for a 2001 2500hd and im pretty sure the light harness is the same on 1500 and 2500 correct?

    We generally don't do trades that involve long distances as the shipping kills the deal but you have a commonly needed mount and you're looking for a very common one as well so I'd imaging finding something within driving distance wouldn't be too tough. May try throwing something up in the wanted/for sale section here too.

    The headlamp adapters you have will work on your truck if they're also from a 99-06 truck.

    The change occurred between 07 classic and 07 new, Classic using the wide mount and new using the narrow one.
