    Hey its my first post. cheers:waving:. Anyways I need to be able to plow an 800ft drive //sand,gravel,dirt and concrete by the garage. I am trying to be careful not to buy the wrong plow. I kinda dropped part of a tree on my new neighbors pole barn already (700) damages. My wife is pissed with me.:angry: . I picked up a 99 4x4 185000 suburban 1500 this winter when my daily driver had issues. So I am thinking of making it my plow rig.

    Just a quick look. And all the plows your looking at are conventional mounts. All are gunna need to be fabbed up to your trk. Look into unimounts
    Almost everything you posted is scrap. Yout not gunna find good stuff unless you broaden your search area

    Serious question, 99 was a dual model year for GM. Some had red rear turn signals, some had amber rear turn signal. Same model year truck, different frames, different mounts, different headlight wiring, different plows acceptable..;)

    Well the 99 classic (red blinky fluid) 2500s and 1500s frame mount was the same and they were available before the 1994 cut-off date so the conventional mounts should fit. I'd research upgrading T bars on your suburban since you will carry the additional weight of the conventional mount and pump on a regular basis. Remember you are looking at plows 19 years old.

    I'd be looking for something easily removable like a Meyers EZ Classic or Western Uni-mount they are the most common for that size/vintage truck. They can be found for under 3K for a good unit with all the parts. Look for one off of your model truck.

    Western has the reputation of being the more reliable of the two but the Meyer is probably more prevalent.
