    Exactly what model plow are you looking at?
    If its a Conventional mount or a Uni-mount the mounting cartons are discontinued and
    very pricey IF you can find one!

    If its a Ultramount then:
    You can count on having to buy the correct mounting carton ($500)
    along with the truck side wiring harness' $250 x2. and the correct module $200
    Depending on the light set up on the plow the existing ones may be used or
    plan on another $200 for a new set !!!!!!!!!!!

    It cost me $1600 to swap my Western from my 04 to my 07 gmt-900 Chevy.

    Keep this in mind with the price of the plow your looking at!

    Im really looking at getting a setup for a few hundred bucks. there are plenty for sale, but they are just not custom desgined for my truck, so no matter what i get i will have to do some fabing to it to get it to mount. i guess i will have to wait untill i find one i want and see what peices i will have to build to make it fit.
