    I have a 1990 K2500. Does anyone know what other trucks/years I can get a plow frame from?
    I'm guessing I can take a frame offf any 1988-1994 Chevy or GMC full size pickup. What about frame differances in the 1500 or 3500?

    That mount should fit any truck from 88 clear up to 98. Up to 2000 on the old body style 3/4 and 1 tons.

    Chevy Made there frames the same from 88 to 98(half tons). You will be able to put your under carriage on a 3/4 ton classic body style chevy up to a 2000. The one ton frames are different. Make sence?

    Ok, so my 3/4 ton can use a frame from a 1/2 ton or 3/4 ton up to 2000 but not off a 3500 of any year?

    1500 and 2500, 7200lb gvw use the same frame. they will all have 6 lugs
    2500, 8600lb gvw and all 3500's 9200 -12,000lb gvw use the same frame and they have 8 lugs

    That makes sense. I have a 6 lug so correct me if I"m wrong, I can pull a plow frame off any 6 lug 4x4 88-2000 and it should bolt up.

    I dont see where the frame would be different at the very front where the plowframe attaches, even on the 3500. You may want to look at 6 lug stuff only for the fact that you would probably be better off with a 7.5 rather than an 8' which is more likely what you would find on an 8 lug truck.

    Well I found a plow setup off an 8 lug 2500 (93 I think) that I'm probably going to pick up. Hopefully it will fit. If it doesn't it looks like I have an excuse to wire up an outdoor 220 for the welder.

    Thanks for the help.

    I have an 8' Fisher that is currently on a 2000 GMC 2500, your body style with 8 lug wheels if your interested. When my new plow is intalled it will include all hardware that is currently on my truck.

    We took the plow frame off a 96 K1500 and mounted it on a 90 K3500. Exact fit....no mods.
