Meyer plow mounts for a Dodge??

    I have a '79 Meyers plow on a '79 Ford F250. Plow works great. Truck runs but is about to fall apart. I just got a '97 Dodge Ram 2500 with only 32,000 miles. What do I need to do to appropriately mount the Meyers plow on the Dodge?

    Its barely worth the time or expense to transfer that old of a plow to a truck that new Arnie as the only thing you'll be able to reuse "as is" is the blade itself.

    You'd need to purchase everything else, updated style mount (EZ classic, EZ-plus for example), lights, light wiring, A-frame, lift frame etc to be compatible to your newer truck...and it all gets more expensive than simply purchasing a used newer style plow for the application.

    Watch the used auto parts section of your local news paper. People are starting to sell equipment.

    Arnie,

    South Central PA huh? Try Storks Plow and Jeep parts in Bernville east of Harrisburg and about 10 miles NE of Reading. You may be able to pickup what you need from them. Huge inventory. They also list some items on eBay:

    GM Muscle Car Parts of PA is also another one in Hooversville.

    Too far for me to drive and plows and parts in my area are very scarce and more expensive.
