    I just got a new truck (chevy) and want to put my 26mt from my old truck(dodge) on to my new truck.
    My question is can you just buy just the frame mounts and reuse the crosstube? Or do I have to go buy a whole new subframe for it?


    Thanks

    If you have a 26 series than you can use the crossmember.

    If you have an mt you need to buy the entire mount.

    The picture looks like a MT you can check the serial number if you're unsure.

    The is not a 26MT it's an MT or a 26.

    Three attachment points or 4?

    Basher is correct in that it is either an MT or 26 series can't be both.

    MT= 3 point attachment

    26= 4 point attachment

    Its a 4 point attachment to the frame. I guess it would be a 26 then?

    Can you post a larger picture of your truck here? Looking at the avatar photo it appears that the blade is not a 26 series. The 26 would have diagonal rib bracing which I can not see on the avatar.

    If it is a 26 series moving it to the 2500HD is not possible as we do not support a mounting system for this model an a 3/4 ton application.

    If it is a MT series you would need to purchase a new mounting kit.

    Let us know what you really have.
