    Anything is possible with the right tools and know how. Heck, I once put a complete old school 8' Meyer from an '88 Dodge D150 onto a 1995 Chevy 2500 diesel :dizzy:. Looked better on the Chevy than it did on the Dodge. I would probably take some time and try to find the correct mount first. I got a Minute Mount mount and an Ultramount mount for my Dodge off Ebay, $150 each. So they are out there for not too much money.

    Not sure what year Dodge you have, but I'll hook you up with my Ultramount mount for a great deal. Western even has an adapter that allows a Unimount to be used on an ultramount mount. I saw it on Ebay once and almost bought it.

    I am still waiting on my buddy for ya about that unimount for ya. But I do have a Dodge meyers mount. Which you could fab the western on to front of it. The dodge and ford mounts are completely different.

    Yeah, I found exactly the same. These Uni-Mounts are selling for top dollar! Seems a good idea to fabricate a hundred of these and sell them on eBay or elsewhere! Can't understand why Western doesn't make them any more, there's obviously a big market for these mounts.

    They still make them. But on a per order basis, and building just one at a time is costly. AKA why they sell for $650+. Your only other choice is get a ultra mount then get a unimount conversion kit.
