    Hello,
    I am putting a Meyers C-9 plow on my 01 Chevy 4by Silverado. I got it from a 03 Ford F-350. I know all the plow stuff will work on the Chevy, but was wondering if anyone knew what would be needed to mount the pushworks to the truck, it's obvious the the Ford stuff wont work, anybody got any clues. Thanks!:waving:

    Meyer site EZ match states that my new vehicle (the Chevy) cannot accept the original (the Ford) system. It says to call closest distributor. Nelson Truck in Seattle may have something in stock. All I'm looking for is the right part to bolt on my truck with that plow. EZ essentailly said you can't run a C-9 with a 2500 truck.

    Any you guys out there can help more than Meyer.

    Just to clarify for MKD. Nobles p/n is for the EZ-Plus series mount and of course as Basher stated the p/n he provided is for the EZ-Classic mount. You need to determine which mounting series you have first but now you have the number for either.

    Thanks guys! Plus vs Classic, how do you tell? My computer wont support pics. Dealer in Washington quoted me 2k, but I don't think he understands that I just want the part that bolts to the trucks frame. I have everything else. I am going to use Lightforce lights as well. Thanks for all the info. I'm sure you'll here from me again.

    Noble, me and my son are thankfull to Almighty God, he is a twin, his brother died two days after birth. He's 23 now. Just had 2 grandaughters, one born 9 weeks early. It's awesome to see people give our Creator the glory He deserves.

    Thanks you guys, the links and pictures are what I needed. I have the EZ Classic mount. Pictures tell the story. Now I can tell my dealer what I need and don't need. I'll let you guys know how I get along with this project. I talked with a local Meyer person (I think he has 9 or 10 plows, all meyers. He said I'd have to do some fabrication and mods to the truck. He aslo said that manufacturers don't recommned plowing with a crewcab truck and it weakens the frame at the second cab. I told him I am not going into business, but just my drive and church lot. I was also thinking about Timbrens, do you guys recommend these? Do you guys have any recommendations for a dual battery kit. I have only 1 battery. Or should I surf the other threads on this site for not meyer specifics? Thanks again for your expert help!
