    Bruce, tell them about the mount so they know what it will fit. This would be mine if I had the use for it.

    the mount is actually for a G M .i just set it back using 6 out of the 8 bolts that's why i got the bolt running throw the bumper for the extra support

    I have the same spreader and that mount will fit virtually any truck with the proper (supplied) spacers from Boss. I have a PDF of the Boss hitch that shows which holes to use per vehical make/model, I would post a link but im on my cell.

    Here is the PDF of your hitch, well there all the same. it shows to fit
    1988-1999 CHEVROLET & GMC (CLASSIC)
    1999 & Newer CHEVROLET & GMC
    1971-1993 DODGE RAM
    1994-2002 ¾ & 1 TON DODGE RAM
    2003 & Newer ¾ & 1 TON DODGE RAM
    1973-1997 FORD SUPER DUTY
    1998 & Newer FORD SUPER DUTY

    plus I imagine it can be easily modded to fit others.

    Cameo89, thanks for the info. Last spring when I bought this spreader I was told that it's been in storage for two years (because they don't use tailgate spreaders, it came with a truck they bought) and it came off a GM. Thanks again, Bruce

    Not a problem bruce, I already did all the research before I bought mine. Its a great spreader.
    $1100 is a fair price imo but a tad high for todays market. But good luck on ur sale.
