    I swapped from a '93 F250 to an '04 Ram 1500. Had to custom build...surprisingly the carton fits exactly between the framerails. I'll look for pics.

    yea if u could find some pics that would be awesome!! the dealer told me that it would have to be fabricated or i was gonna have to buy a new plow all together but i dont really want to do that cause this is just gonna be a backup truck.

    Here is the carton, stripped of all the excess brackets. The empty frame holes are for the bumper mount.

    Here I'm using the bumper bolts as placeholders, the bolt holes almost line up perfectly. If you enlarge the frame holes in the right direction for larger bolts you can make it line up perfectly. I'll look for pics with the new BIG bolts in there. Keep in mind with this method you will have to fabricate a way to drop the clevis mounting points if you want to angle and still have your blade flat.

    Yeah, works nicely....no power angle yet though. I need to make some detachable drop brackets to my AFrame is parallel. I have been working on the bull bar/cooler/fishing rod rack that I will be running in the summer season.......not a flake of snow in the forecast....boooooooooo

    Looks like the mounting carton is right where your bumper is supposed to be. :confused:
