    Never done a Fisher, but I've done two Westerns on Fords, one on a Dodge. And a Boss on a Chevy. Biggest advice I guess I could give is take your time, and think it through. Have plenty of good drill bits and patience.

    You have to pull the bumper and also blocker beam behind the bumper if it has one. Pretty easy install otherwise, a few 1/2" holes need to be drilled on each side. Go to Fishers website and get the directions if you don't have them.

    I do not recall drilling any holes but it was a while ago. You do however need the bolts that have the 1/2" wide flat stock welded to the heads of them. The flat stock on some of the bolts is pretty long. You need this because the frame is boxed. This allows you to fish the bolt/flatstock assembly in the hole and then allows you to tighten the nut up from the outside of the frame without trying to hold the head of the bolt(which is near impossible). You need these.

    Well things went pretty smooth instaling the plow bracket today. About 2 hours. Now I just have to jack up the plow to get it to match up with the push plates! And then make some sort of deck so I can drop the plow on it to make it easier to unmount the plow and hook it up. Any ideas?? Angain thanx for all the help and tips!!

    Your plow does not have a jack to hold it up while it's off the truck?
