    Ok. So I am getting my hands on a Western 8' Pro Plow with an UltraMount.

    All i will be getting is plow side. So i am going to need the Truck side of everything.

    Including the plow mount. Now my question is what is the difference between the "Early" and "Late" style mounts. My truck is 2004, according to Westerns site "early" means prior to 12/1/03. my truck is 04/04. And the local western dealer to me gave me part numbers to the "early" version. By the way im reading it, the plow mount is a "late" version. So which one is the right one to get??

    Thank you in advanced
    Jason

    I would think that you are the late mount. I sure though, but that is what is making sense to me. I hope you have an easy time finding the mount. We just needed a ultra mount for my dads 2000 F-250 and it is on a nation wide back order. I found one new but had to call 15 different dealers to get one.

    Yeah thats what im assuming, but the dealer by me used Westerns quick match (herd him over the phone) to tell me it was an early mount.

    I have a couple dealers in my area that can get my new in about 2 weeks. but im trying to find used.

    Where you you located? There is a dealer around here Mishawaka, IN that has one used. You can verify what the dealer said online. You can do the quick match yourself.

    the difference is a coilspring (later model) front end verses a leaf spring (earlier model) front end. i have an ultramount for the earlier/leaf spring style front end and come to philly often. email for info. snydercontracting@h o t m a i l DOT c o m
