    I have a mount off of a 2000 Dodge 3/4 ton truck and was wondering if I can possibly make my mount fit on a 1989 F-250? If anyone wants to trade mounts let me know too. I have a very good welder/fabricator that works for me. Any help is appreciated.

    You can make anything fit with a good welder/fabricator. I have an RT2 mount off a '98 Dodge modified on my '78 Chevy.... and a mount off a '93 Ford on my '82 GMC... and that one's been plowing since 1998 with it, the mount and blade are from '95. Still going strong. Just remember to make strong braces.

    Yes I still have the Dodge mount. It has most of the bolts and a fresh coat of paint. PM me an offer.

    I have a mount off of a 2000 Chevy 1500 mounted on my 2005 Dodge 1500.
    All I had to do is reverse the side mounts and add a 1/2'' spacer, so yes any thing is possible.

    Also that same mount was bought as a RT2 and converted to a RT3

    Good luck on your switch, Yon
