    Hi

    The earlier model SD's , 99-04 have leaf spring front suspensions, the 05 models have coil springs, and the earlier model mounting cartons won't fit without a refabrication of the early mounting carton.

    do you know how much refab you need the front bolt holes line up and the chassis is the same it looks like it would be real close

    Hi

    There was a up-fitter out in the Mid West (?) who modified one to fit the 05 up model, I can say from the photo's there was a serious amount of re-fabbing, not just a cut here and a weld there.

    Where your from NJ have you contacted Chuck from Smith Bros.? I'm sure he could do the re-fabbing, just don't know what it would cost?

    Good Luck
    Jay

    if you know how to fab its not hard.
    just use the classic clevis with two brackets from mdII/plus mount and some extra steel

    i ended up last year getting a western plow but i was told you can use the 99-04 front clevis then you order the left and right side frame mounts for an md II mount for an 05-07 and you just make your own piece of flat bar connecting the bottom of the clevis to the tab on the md2 frame mount but i never tried it just from what i heard
