    Is that the one that was on CL in GR for $250? I'm pretty sure that is actually an older B&B by the looks of it, if thats the one you got. I was going to buy it a few days ago.

    Give me a call tomorrow sometime and I can measure one of mine when I'm at the shop. I've got brand new pumps and controls if you need one.

    Top links. 1 1/4" square stock 19" overall, 17 1/2" center to center holes. You could also go to tractor supply and get adjustable links but the shortest I have found were 2" longer so you would need to adjust your lower link to make up the difference. I did this on the back blade I just built.

    Bottom link
    Same square stock but overall is 22" and 20 1/2" center hole to hole.

    how does that mount to your truck? i do not want to use that huge bumper that was included with mine, it sits way too low and is way more heavy duty than i would ever need, especially for my 1/2 ton and its only a 7 foot blade.

    I made my 7' mount to the reciever hitch then I added 2 more box tubes to the hitch so it doesn't wobble. I added the center piece first then mounted it and tacked the two outer box's in place so it would all line up, pretty simple.
