    I Have A 1985 Plow Truck Which Is Over Due For Retirment... Just Looking To See If Anyone Has Modding This Setup To Work For A Newer Mid 1990's Truck... I'm Sure It Has Been Done Before Just Hoping To See Some Others/PLan Ideas To Get My Project Going

    You didn't say what brand of plow you have but if you have an under the hood pump it may prove to be a little more difficult to adapt the pulley system with a serpantene belt. That being said, I just fabbed up two mounts, one for a 79 F150 and a 7' meyer plow, the other was a mount for my 2010 Dodge 2500 HD with a C-8 Meyer. If you have the tools and the know how and the time, anything can be done. I googled the mounting cartons for the meyer and was able to fab mine up by the pics. A word of advice, take lot's of measurements!! I used a drillpress to drill the holes, I only had to drill a couple holes in the frame of both trucks, I used mostly factory holes.
