    RGrimes and I installed all the truck side parts on one of his trucks today. I couldn't believe how easy the mounts went on. No drilling! Both went on in about 30 minutes. I'd consider buying a Chevy because of this reason alone :nod:
    I had to clear cemented dirt out of the cross member holes, so that slowed me down. The electrical wasn't too bad, but we didn't get turn signals on my plow lights when we tested them. Not sure what's up with that. All in all, it was a pretty easy and straight forward install. At least I'll have a much better idea on what to do when it's time for all the electrical to go onto my truck. Hopefully he will post some pics of the plow hooked up for us.

    ya i agree the installation went slick when i did mine. i got the wiring in a heap and somehow managing to throw it all in the truck in a fairly clean looking manner. i look at it now and see a couple things i would have done differently but its no big deal. the frame mounts bolted right up, nice and easy. my only issue was interpreting the silly wiring diagram i printed off the fisher site. everything is nice and clear until you get to the parking/turn signals. but that was figured out with a brief test session and it was good to go.

    as far as the chevy thing goes, i thought all the new fisher mounts were designed to bolt right on to trucks? or is chevy the only one with holes throughout the frame? lol is that good or bad?

    Most of them are designed that way now. They had no choice as most of the other mfgs were going with the same thing.
