    Does anyone know of a site that sells plow mounts? Controls & parts? Lights & wire harness's? I've a Meyer 7.5 plow w/E-47 pump and need mounts to adapt/install it to my 2006 Chevy Silverado 1500 4x4. I have no clue what exactly I'm looking for either. I'd like something for easy install/removal of the blade setup. Any help would definitely be great! I know I need controls for this thing and I'm assuming I can probably construct my own with some toggle switches, bracket & a solenoid? Some pictures of the plow and what all I've got with it are here: http://www.fairpoint.net/~rccooke/images/plow/ Any help with getting this thing together and working on my vehicle would be really appreciated! Thanks in advance!

    That's an old "conventional" style Meyer setup. Any way you end up mounting that frame to your truck will be custom fabrication. You may be able to utilize the blade assembly with the newer EZ mount style mount/frame assembly, but I can't say for sure. My other concern is; Do you really want that old pile on your 2006 Chevy? From the pics, it looks to be in kinda tough shape. Pistons look pitted, the motor on the hydro unit looks pretty crusty. If you do get it on your truck, how reliable will it be unless you rebuild it all?

    If it were me, I'd throw it on Craigslist and get whatever I could for it, and use that towards something newer, with the vehicle specific mounts for my truck. That's just me. I think it will be more hassle that it's worth trying to retrofit that to your newer rig.
