    Just bought a 87 Jimmy for plowing and got a Poly Meyers plow from a 89 Chevy truck and noticed that the bracket on the plow that bolts to the from is ALOT wider than the frame on my 87 Jimmy. Is there some way of modifing the plow bracket to fit the jimmys narrow frame?
    By the way I got the plow for nothing from my father inlaw and the plow is about 10 yrs old so I gotta make this work some how.
    Thanks
    John

    Buy the correct mount. If you fab something up it will cost you plenty anyway.

    I agree with hydro_37. You don't want something to break when you have a ton of snow to move.

    get rid of the jimmy and buy a truck that it fits on, It will be cheaper in the long run

    Well I went ahead and fab'd up my own custom mounts out of 3/8" plate using grade8 bolts, I can't see there being any issue with the set-up in the long run.

    I paid up the a$s to have my plow fabricated to my Ford frame never again...
