    Call another dealer because the one you called doesnt know JACK!

    Go to westerns site and run the "Quick Match" , pretty much any blade that you want for the 4500/5500 is available in the ultra mount.

    W series Trucks

    There are NO mounts available for a W series 4500/5500. The other posters are thinking of the C 4500/5500 Trucks. I was just at the seasonal update course and I specifically asked this question!!! They are not planning on building a mount at this time either (not enough demand according to them)
    HOWEVER any decent fabrication shop can build a mount to fit.

    Nestech is correct a good fab shop can build you a mount. We tend to do more boss fab's on cab overs, but it shouldn't be a big problem.

    Sounds like he needs to make a trip to Erie.

    Crash mount any plows yet? Just did one Sunday. Real nice not slushing around under a truck. Have to take advantage of the weather when you can.

    looks good
    unfortunately since GMC is out of the medium truck business, I am not allowed to buy one.
    Looks like it will be a Ford F350 dually pickup 4x4 or a F550 stake bed 4x4.
    still want the Wide-Out plow and possibly liquid deicer, may end up with a v-box.

    Thanks for all the help

    Nope, not yet. Guess im going to have to light a fire under my dealers backside after i get a 5th wheel hitch in dads truck so he can move his newly aquired camper out from in front of the garage door.
