    Go to http://www.westernplows.com

    Go to the Quickmatch plow selector. Input the truck you want to mount plow on and the kind
    of plow. It will show the part numbers of the mount you need. Compare it with the part numbers
    of the truck it came off of.

    A PIA for sure but the only way a non dealer can check for sure...................

    thanks for the input , the quick match is for new plows. i'm looking at cross referencing a older style conventional off a 1990 truck and i need to know if it will fit on my 1986 model year truck. i know a boss plow will interchange on those years but that doesn't mean that a western mount will interchange. that's why i'm looking for a listing od the older plows or interchange guide for the truck mounts. thanks, pete

    that's wht i'm looking for a western application guide. boss lists 81-91 fords all the same, and i'm not sure why. i know that 80-86, 87-91, 92-97 are all different. i guess i should call or stop bye a dealer and see what info i can find out.

    sorry was thinking GM, might actually fit on a ford but would have to do a little more looking.
