    I bought a conventional mount pro plow off eBay. I was told it would fit my 98 ford f150 but after buying it I found that this mount may not fit my truck. Can anyone help me? here's pics of the 2 mounts it came with. Thank you

    They're not for a 98' F150 I promise you that, because Western never produced a conventional mount for '97-up F150 due to the changes in Federal motor vehicle safety standards.

    They are Ford though, F250/350.

    You can make anything work with enough time, money and fabrication work. Would I personally recommend it? Not even if it were free.

    Thanks for the advice. Now I have this plow and not sure of what to do with it. Whats a plow like this selling for. The plow is new I put it together the other day and all the parts are brand new except for the mounts. It came with two used mounts two controls 3 wiring harness for the lights one is the old 3 prong and two sets of lights.or maybe someone knows what truck these mounts fit and I can find a cheap truck.

    Plow prices are rather regional but post some pics so we can see what you have.

    Like I mentioned previously, they're both F250/350. Could be 80-91and 92-97.

    that first mount looks like a 80-91 250/350. the second mount in pictures 2 and 3 look like the same thing, but the undercarraige mounts are nothing i've ever seen before. they look so weak and flimsy compared to the undercarriage mounts in the first picture - looks like a homemade job to me.

    for sure neither are 92-97 250/350.
