    Any competent welding/fabricating shop should be able to modify the mounts to work on your newer truck, but before you spend the $$$ on that - have you looked into the proper mounts (new) for your '97 from a dealer?

    The plow itself is different from the 89 to the 97.

    It's only the A frame and you'll need to shorten it. That's the good news 'cause a new A frame is $200. (sounds like you're budgeting tight.)

    A welding shop (or yourself) should be able to handle the shortening process, just measure a new one so you know by how much. (I think it's like 5-6" or so.)

    i checked on new mounts for the plow on my truck and it would cost around $600 dollars , because they say i need a new pump mount and undercarriage brackets, may have to build my own for that price. thanks for the input guys, i appreciate all the info i can get.

    thanks guff72

    Look around for a used mount. Junkyards and Clssifieds are a good start.

    i have a very old plow mount, it is not the new system, that is why i would have to buy all the mounts. will probably end up just building my own.
    thanks for the input.

    That is why the parts are so much. I am not sure Meyer even made a old style mount for a 97 vehicle. Everything was pull off by then. Probably be easier in the long run to locate the whole plow frame for the 97 then adapt the blade to it.

    If you can do a little fabricating, you can make your own.
    I picked up a Western unimount undercarriage, had a Myers conventional mount setup from a Ford, and a Pathfinder blade. It has worked fine for the past two seasons. I built it so I can either pull just the blade or the whole setup depending on which pins I pull out.
