    Hello All.

    I have a 24 series plow and a 2000 style Dakota mount. I need to hitch pins to connect them. Are all hitch pins the same... there are two different colored ones on Ebay, but they both are 3/4". Do I need a specific model hitch pin or will either do?

    I also need guide markers... again, two different ones on Ebay... does it matter which one I buy?

    Thanks,

    --Rick

    Both items you ask about are cheaper at a trctor supply store. (Mills Fleet Farm or Tractor Supply)

    Good to know. Thank you.
    Do you know if all the hitch pins are interchangeable or do I need specific ones for my plow/mount combo?

    My guess is the guide markers don't make a difference.

    Just measure the length you need them. Just about any 3/4" pin will work.
    I carry spares with me at all times in the truck.
