    To run that plow on a conventional truck you'll need a truckside mount PLUS central hydraulics (fairly uncommon on pick-up trucks) OR you'll need to find the truckside monut, all wiring for the truck, head-gear, pump, etc....

    This is a prettty complicated approach to put a plow on a regular old pick-up IMO, keep looking.

    That's what I was figuring. I'll stay on the hunt. I was actually just looking for a mount so I could fab something up to work with my lifted truck. It's more because I enjoy the challenge than because I actually want to push snow. But hey, if it works out nice, I wouldn't mind pushin' some snow off my driveway. :nod:

    Lifted trucks and snow plowing don't work very well together.
    do a search and you will find tons of reasons why.

    I couldn't imagine that they would be the best suited plow vehicles, but searching on here actually netted me quite a few results with people saying they plow with a lifted truck and love it. Like I said, I'm doing this as more of a "just because I can" type deal. If I can't find parts at a decent price, I'll just keep waiting. If it never happens, I'll take the money and buy a round for the whole dam place.
