    You will need a set of push plates, a wiring harness, and a controller. The cost should be about 900 to 1,000 dollars depending on location, and so forth. Is your 99 a 3/4 ton or 1/2 ton? Fisher plows are pretty heavy, so if it's only a 1/2 ton, you may need timbrens or air shocks on the front of the truck. Timbrens cost about 300 plus an alignment if I'm not mistaken. Air shocks or helper springs will be much cheaper, but the ride of your truck will suck. It will be like driving a log wagon fully loaded. Good Luck

    Timbrens for a chevy are only about $200-$250 and should not require a re-alignment is done properly. Air shocks will cost around $350 and on up from there.
