    Whats the easiest plow frame to install on a 2001 GMC 2500

    Comparing either western unimount/ ultra mount/ or a boss plow.

    I installed a ultramount onto my f350 and it was a pain in the A$$.

    Please let me know what you would recomend

    Western Ultra mount.

    You could install one in 20 minutes with one broken arm... 30 minutes if both of your arms are broken.

    On a more serious note... the Ultra mount is very easy to install on that particular truck. No holes to drill. Remove the factory tow hooks and it uses all existing holes. I do them on a lift with air tools - 10 minutes per side.

    I can't speak for the Boss mount, but the most immediate issue that comes to mind is that you'd have to hook a Boss plow to it when you're done. :D

    They're all easy on that truck so don't use that criteria to chose a plow. Support is far more important.
