    Just got '96 dodge 2500/ cummings, considering doing some plowing. (BTW i think it was a good deal?: $11k for xcab/slt/cap/5x10 trailer/all power/tow pack, CLEAN! Only 50kMi)
    Can anyone recommend any places for a used 8' snow plow in NJ or PA? I need complete set. Will pay cash and I will pick it up.

    Also, is any other year or dodge modes will have the same plow mount to fit my '96?, or what should i look for...

    Thanx!

    PS you can email me directly:

    Id look for a used fisher plow because IMO their truckside mounts are the easiest to work with. I would first look for the plow, if its and 8 footer its probley off a 250/2500 anyways. If the plow is being sold with all truckside equip. (mount and wiring), the mount may bolt right up to yor truck. If you get a fisher go to their website and they have tons of manuels on which mounts fit which trucks organized by year make and model. Generally if it was off a chevy it may not bolt up to a dodge. You can always buy the right truckside mount for your plow and vehicle from a dealer. I have worked with fishers mounts and they are easy to bolt and unbolt and fishers website told me what "vehicle attachment kit" i would need for the truck i was working on.

    I will check 'em out. But do you think it is less complicated to take blade on and off with mayers? Or does the fisher have 'easymount'?

    Have a GREAT W/END

    Just got home looked @ ebay and can't find any, probably too late or I am not looking at the right stuff. I was only able to find either 7'5 or too far from me (Vermot, Ohio..) Oh well, got to keep looking.
    I really appreciate your help!!!!
    Have a GREAT WEEKEND!!!!!

    I found meyers EZ mount 7'5" full and almost new setup, which i installed, but currently i'm trying to trade just blade for 8' (+-$). I really don't want to take everything apart.
    Thanx!
