    Any good fab/welding shop should be able to make short work of that without charging you too much. Or like was already suggested, hit local junkyards, craigslist & ebay, see if you can find someone that has the older framework you need for the Dodge.

    If you can find a Dodge like yours and see how the brackets are made then modify/fabricate to get yours to match.
    FWIW, sounds like you have a C8 plow. That's pretty heavy for a 1/2 ton pickup.

    Here's the classic mount for your truck. You can at least see where they bolt to the frame.

    Forget it. Do it the easy way, Go to your local salvage yard and get another Chevy engine and put it in the truck.

    Cheaper, easier, and you still have the dump body and 4x4 if you need it.

    Pull the hood off, take the engine out, swap it, and off you go. You can do it in a day if you have a good oak tree to pull it !

    There is a way to do it, it just has to be figured out. I've made some of the most impossible stuff work and work well. But it most definately will cost you some $$$$$$ to have a fab shop do it for you. Your cheaper route will most likely be a different engine for your Chevy.
