    Some guy on Ebay is selling a brand new Meyers plow and it is sitting on a Western Mount, I am wondering if it is possible to fit a Western Mount on a Meyers plow? I find that Meyers Mounts are almost double the price of Western Mounts and that would save me a TON of trouble if its a fact....

    I saw that too, a meyer pump and blade on a western pump rack. yes it can be done it just takes a little welding and metel fabrication. I would say go for it , you shouldnt have any problems with it.

    I think Crumm is using somethin like that up there in Fairbanks on his old Ford truck. Can't remember which was what but, I don't think it's all a match..

    mylittlescoop,
    Plenty of guys on here that can help you get going with the set up I'm sure. But I just want to mention to be careful of what you buy and who you buy from on ebay. Seems that stolen plows are something to keep an eye out for on ebay. And when someone is selling a plow with a different mount it just leaves the door open a bit on where the unit came from. We just had a member here get his plow & truck stolen last month, found the truck and couldn't even tell it had a plow I guess. Just something to keep in mind, sorry for bringing it up if you've already checked it all out.

    Buck

    I would turn and run if i were you it will work but it is probably a cluster f*** i would just buy a complete unit and not have to worry about it.
