    '73-'91 solid axle GM.

    Looks to have last been on a '73-'80 judging by the bumper brackets.

    The only similarities in the mounts between those two body styles is that the pump mounts in the center. Nothing else is even in the ballpark.

    You'd have to completely change the mounts configuration. For starters the rails are wider on the '88-up bodied trucks so you'd need to first cut it apart, and then cut it in half and widen it. All the rear bracing would have to be made from scratch as the IFS truck isn't even similar in the mounting locations.

    Not worth the time or effort IMO. :salute:

    Nothing in your pics will work on a Unimount mount...you need a Unimount plow.
