    I have a friend that is going to sell me a fisher plow off of a ford f150. I want to put it on my 2door tahoe with a 5.5 diesel. Will it be easier to find the correct mounts for my vehicle or can I modify the ones from the Ford. Also what about the wiring harness how much modifying will have to be done. Thanks Diesel

    Is this a minute mount? If so, push plates will be easy to find. What year is the Tahoe?

    MM push plates are dime a dozen for those GM trucks. You can't legally put a conventional mount on that year anyway.

    When you hit the reply button there is a paperclip button. To the right of the font buttons. You will need to upload it, then hit the paperclip button to attach it.

    That's a minute mount, so you're good. That's a Regular/Heavy Duty. So it's a bit on the heavy side, especially with the diesel in a Tahoe. You will likely want to do some mods to your front end to help carry the weight better. Search for torsion, t-bars, timbrens. Plenty of reading and info for you. I wouldn't begin to try and mod the Ford push plates. You should be able to find some used pretty easy.
