    First of all how do you know which is which, I tried the search function at Fishers site usind the serial # 45221 and came up with no match.

    Now more importantly, Are the push plates the same?

    yes push plates are the same. you can tell the two apart by looking it up on google. the mm2 is more "modern" looking and has a different style lift triangle that is more rounded and not flat on top like the mm1

    MM2 has a newer style headgear, and it has the single lever pin system. The truck side mounts are the same for either MM1 or MM2, so everything is basically interchangeable EXCEPT the wiring setups sometimes (2 and 3 plug setups will vary obviously).

    That is a MM! with under hood hydraulics.

    First the mounts from a 2500 to 2500 are different. They look simliar but are different.

    Second that is a belt drive setup and may not be able to mount to a different motor.

    I'm sure you meant to say that the 1500 to 2500 mounts are different.

    I don't know if this link will work but the Fisher site lists the same part number for both, unless I'm reading this wrong which is very possible.

    As far as the belt drive setup goes I'm pretty sure I can figure out a way to mount everything but the pulley at the crank, again I maybe wrong:D

    Yeah I did. It depends on the years and whether its a 2500 or 2500hd. I should have gone into more depth. Follow the Fisher guides, just make sure your model matches.

    As for the hydraulics, I swear by the belt drive whenever I can mount them. More time consuming to set up initially but much more reliable.

    Flipper,

    Would you mind taking a look at that link and let me know if you think I'm correct thinking that I can use a 98 K2500 push plate on my 88 K1500.

    I just want to make sure I'm reading this correctly.

    Thanks for all the help guys:)

    As long as your GVW is 7200, I read it that it will.

    Here's what I'm taking the plow from.

    Here's why and why I've never been a Ford guy:

    Here's what I plan on putting the plow on. Same year and mileage as my brothers Ford by the way.

    If the 88 dies I'll put the plow on this.
