    Hello all, I just joined the other day. I'm not new to plowing but new to Western plows. I bought a Unimount 7.5 plow. I need a truck side mount for my 1998.5 dodge 2500 diesel. I saw there was one that was up for sale in the used section. But that might be possible sold already. What are my options? Or keep searching on E-bay. Could I modify/weld a bracket from another application. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank You,

    John

    You have the option of running a Ultra to Uni adapter. I use one on my 96 because what people want for a used truck side mount is crazy.payup

    Thank you for you response. I have been watching the ebay auction, It looks like the link you sent someone beat me to it. It state they are out of stock. I tried to call them but no answer.

    OK I'll try again, I spoke to a western shop about 35 miles away they have the ultra mount and the unimount adapter for it for $892 or something like that. So the place you posted is a great deal.

    Thanks again can't wait to get it.

    Well today I picked up my new ultra mount for my truck with the uni mount conversion. I'm gonna install tomorrow.Hope all goes well with install. I might have to do some fab work due to my DSS steering brace that mounts in the same place

    You should only need to purchase longer bolts. It should mount without any problems. Good luck.

    I pretty much figured on longer bolts. Do you have any pics of how yours is done? Thanks for the reply.

    Sorry no pictures right now no camera available, sorry.

    FYI I did assemble my adapter to the highest point available as I tried to keep it from having no clearance.
