    I currently have a Classic (tube style) setup on my '99 F250 Superduty. It has the E60 pump and a C8 blade. I have the opportunity to upgrade my setup to a complete plow that has the EZ plus type mount with an 8 foot poly blade and the E58H pump. Basically, what are the strengths and weaknesses of each mounting system and the parts involved.

    I can only speak for the classic tube setup, but it doubles as a great mounting point for my Bull Bar and cooler/fishing rod mounts off season. The flexibility is really great and parts are Hella-Plentifull on craigslist.

    One you own and know, one you have to pay for and hope it works.

    You guys are both correct. Actually, I have already bought it and got a pretty good deal. So basically it is down to which one do I sell.

    Stick'em both on the market at a healthy price and sell the one that goes first?

    night and day easier hook up on the ez plus. lifts higher, lowers lower. all pros, the only con is sticking with meyer!! you will need to change the frame mount on the truck. if your ok with that, its a no brainer if the cost is low. save your old pump for a spare because meyer pumps always let you down in a storm
