    You should be posting this in the Used Plowing and Truck Equipment Forum instead of this Snowplowing forum. That's where people will see and give you an offer if they have a plow for your truck.

    This thread probably will be relocated to that forum anyway.

    Stephen, I believe he's asking if a plow from a '92 Chevy will fit a '88.

    I believe '89 is when the body style changed, but I can't say if the frames are different. There should be plenty of help here for you soon.

    Welcome to this site. If both trucks are four wheel drive, that plow will fit.

    Welcome to Plowsite.

    If your truck is a 3/4 ton in 88, that would mean that it's the older body style, am I correct? Meaning that it looks like the 73-87 chevy trucks? If this is the case, then no, the plow from the 92 (which I beleive to be the first year the 3/4 and larger trucks were the newer body style) will not work.

    If the two trucks are the same body style, then yes, the plows are interchangeable between your 88 and that 92. However, I think that if the plow has been sitting outside in the junkyard for a long time, it may need lots of $ to bring it back up to a dependable running state. I'd start by taking off the motor to see what it looks like inside the pump and housing. If there is any rust, Its probably best to look for another plow. What shape is the blade in? I would imagine is pretty rusty, as are the tilt cylinders. If you think it is in decent shape, then its probably worth your time. $500 for that plow froma salvage yard, however, is probably too much.

    Irocz does that truck look like your truck? For more info go to Fishers website. In any event if the plow looks brand new it should be a minute mount and all you need to be concerned about is the mount which isn't too big a deal. Hope it works out good for you!

    Model change was between 87 and 88 models. The plow should bolt right up.

    Welcome to Plowsite.

    1988 would be the new body style,unless you have a V series,but they were only one ton crew cabs.

    The plow may be different.There is a difference between LD (7200 lb GVWR) and HD (8600 lb GVWR) 3/4 tons.The frames are different.Check the GVWR on both truck to see if the match.If not,you might have to get a new peculiar attachment kit to make that plow work with your truck.

    Even at $500.00 plus the cost of the new kit is still a good deal if it's in really good shape.

    iroc, I merged your new thread here with the existing thread. There's no need to start a new thread if you are continuing on the same topic. Good luck!

    First question: That plow is just fine for your truck, in fact, thats the most common size of plow for a 3/4 ton truck like yours.

    As for the pushplates, I cannot say, as I don't quite understand, however, I think that everything from the 92 (plow-related) needs to be bolted onto your truck. I'm a Western user, so I'm not real familiar with Fisher, but many other members are, they'll be able to help you out.
