    It would help a bunch if we knew what kind of plow you were using. All makes of plows use different kinds of mounts.

    So what are you asking? If you have the mount off the 1978, you just need to modify it to fit your frame rails. The front part of the mount ( where the plow mounts) is going to stay just as it is, and the back side will bolt on to your frame rails. I am sure you can look up the specs on Meyers web site to give you the factory height from the ground to the center on your plow pins. After that it's just a matter of making it fit.

    i guess what i'm asking is for some pictures of plow mount. since i have never made any before and i'm not real sure how to modify them. on a '78 ford they mount behind the bumper and i would like to put it in front. just looking for ideas. i was thinking of making something to go in the tow hooks then down and under the bumper the to the frame. what do u thing?

    I( think you should buy the correct mount and save time, money and maybe someones life if it is not done right
