    We were getting ready to transfer my MM1 to my 06 Ram 1500. Was looking for push plates, 7180, and I was told I can't get a MM1 on that truck. Called a local fisher dealer and they...kind of confirmed. Does anybody have any info on this? History, ways to make it work, any info would be great.

    Thanks

    7'6". I was told it was 06-08 ram 1500 and a couple years of Chevy 1500, like 07-09 or around there

    As long as the plow and truck are both 3 plug it will work

    Its not the wiring or anything. Its that it physically cannot fit. The plow frame hits the bumper before the pins even reach the frame. Just want to see if anyone has any first hand experience with this

    Go here and check and make sure you have the correct mounts for your truck.

    Push plates are the same for MM1 and MM2. The difference is in the head gear.

    Aren't the headgear on a mm1 a little closer to the truck where the mm2 are more out in front? Might be where your problem is.

    The last time someone posted about this issue the headgear was badly bent. Post a picture of you plow.

    I've gotten word that the MM1 frame and headgear are shorter than the MM2. When trying to hook up the pins never reach the frame.

    If it was on another dodge and chevy before yours why wouldn't it work on your truck?Did you get the truckside setup with the plow? I think you have the wrong pushplates for your truck.The pushplates bolt up,but don't stick out far enough from the bumper to mount the plow.Could you post some pictures of just the plow,the pushplates,and what it looks like when you go to hook it up.That will give us a better idea of what your working with
