    Not available for anything manufactured after 1994. The only manufacturer still listing them is Meyer, though you may be able to build one a piece at a time from westerns parts books either waypayuppayuppayuppayup

    Why do you want conventional? Go with the newer mount and adapt your plow to fit it. We adapted an older Western plow to a newer Meyer mount.

    the 92-97 F250/350 conventional mount is very difficult to find as it was made for only 2 years before production of the unimount setup began. i know becuase i was looking for one. i lucked out an found one in NJ, but have not been able to locate any others since. i wanted that frame cus i swear by the old cable operated western pumps. heres a pic of my truck with that frame.

    EXACTLY. We bought a used Meyers set up for a 98 Tahoe. We welded new tabs so the Western plow would mount to the Meyers frame. We now have a nice Meyers E-60 frame mount that we take off for the summer, and use a Western plow.

    Ah yes....I am an old cable pump man myself. See the one in my pic....I have another pump that I will be rebuilding soon, and another controller. I need to buy new cables and I will have an extra pump and cable set up.
