    Hello all, Will a Western snow plow and DSS steering brace work together? It looks like the ultramount will mount where the steering brace is now. I'm hoping I don't have to make modifications. Thanks for any help.

    Wow! I'm surprised no one had issues being how crappy the front ends are on these trucks. LOL!

    From the picture you posted and the instruction photo, they look like they will not fit together.

    Hello, I worked on the mount today. I worked on the passenger side of truck. I lowered steering brace and sway bar. I was able to get the bracket up and in. And remount the brace and sway bar. The drivers side should be more of a challenge. So far so good. If not I will weld up some me brackets for steering brace. Good thing I'm a certified welder and my bro has a fabricating shop. I'll post my results.

    Thanks,

    John

    Did this go well, I am thinking of getting a plow on my '96 cummins and I have the steering brace.

    Hello, And yes it did. All I had to do is a little grinding on the snowplow bracket. Also need to get longer bolts for the rear portion of bracket. It slid right under the steering brace. And went in great. I plowed thru all the storms this past year. If you need pics or info on the bolts I can get them to you. Just to let you all know I did the ultra to unimount set up.

    Thanks,

    John
