    Hey guys, I had this plow on my 98 2500 silverado, and now have to get it put on the new dodge. Was hoping that some of you have done this install and could share your wisdom with me. Biggest fear I have is if I have to drill the frame. That was the only nice thing about the bowtie it just bolted to holes that were already in the frame. Thanks for any pointers in advance. Joe

    There is no drilling to do on the dodge. I think you will find it's easyer to install a plow frame on the dodge. As long as the frame is made for it and it not comming from the chevy.

    I have put 2 of them on my 2001 Dodge Ram. No problems with bolting up to the trucks. just be sure to get the correct wiring harness for your blade when you switch!

    Ive done both GM and the Dodges,the Dodge is by far the easiest to put a plow on,no drilling either.

    Hey John, welcome back to the forum! :waving:

    I love our new Dodge 2500! Man does that truck pull hard! We put a Western V on it.

    Good to be back Chuck,im glad you like your Ram.If you want it to really pull,give me a call.Mine is a dream towing with 450RWHP,and 950 RW ft lbs of torque,hills are flattened without ever having to downshift,except when a struggling car in in your way.I love the western V,I hope your Ram serves you as good as mine has been,its real workhorse.

    Thanks guys for the responses. I hope it goes as easy as you have said. The wiring harness is the same for both trucks. I double checked with my boss distributer. And I do remember when I installed it on my chevy one side of the light plugins say dodge on them. They said actually its a little less wiring due to no daytime running lights on it. I of course just had to buy a different pushbeam and mounts. Cost me about $290.00. By the way anyone need mounts for a 98 Chevy for a Boss III 8'2" V?? I have some that are heading for scrap if I can't sell them. Joe
