    Anyone know about what the cost would be for the frame mount for a 99 jeep wrangler and the wire harness. I have a md 68 plow. I'm thinking of selling my truck and getting a jeep. My truck is giving me nothing but trouble with the four wheel drive. GMC Sierra with push button 4x4. NEVER AGAIN that stuff is junk.

    Aint going to be cheap. Just got a quote from my local authorized dealer - changing from a 96 Dodge Ram to a 96 Ford F series- quoted me $595.00 for mounts and wiring harness. Must be a bunch of over-piad, over-compensated union employees over at Buyers, or maybe the price of copper is up there close to the price of gold. The mounts are about fifty bucks worth of steel, so the wire for the harness must be pretty expensive.

    I would think I could reuse some of the parts from the mount I have now. The front piece where the plow hooks must be the same on all the mounts.

    The actual attachment points of that piece would be the same but the length of the part may be different depending on the width of the truck frame. If the width of the truck frame is the same as the width of the jeep frame you would only need the right and left frame pieces. If not that cross member that the plow actually attaches to would be a different length either longer or shorter and would need to be replaced as well.

    Why would I price a Boss or Western mount? Its a Snow Dogg plow. Completely different attach points. Does me no good without a Boss or Western Plow.
