    I have a chance to buy what I believe is a meyer ez classic?? It is the style with the 2 round tubes. All I would be buying is the plow and the lights, pump etc. What is the truck side mount called for the plow? And I guess what Im asking besides the plow, what else do I need to make this a complete setup? It would be going on a 1999 dodge ram 1500. I've run westerns for 15 years this would be my first meyer. Thank You for any help!

    here's a link to the meyer install manuals page. you should be able to scroll down and find the one for your truck. there should be a picture in the file. Good luck with finding the "mounting carton" you are looking for. you could try and PM Jim from ESI trucks and there are also a couple of others that sell parts that are members. http://meyerproducts.com/TechSupport/ServiceManualsandInstallationInstructions.aspx:nod:

    Correct. Try to see if you can find a used mount though, their not cheap. Around 400 to 500 new.

    Thanks for the help guys! I ended up finding a frame, and wiring harness for the truck 20 mins away from my house, never thought I would find a meyers frame that close to home! Ended up having about $1000 in a complete setup for the truck, now the fun part installing it all!

    $1000 for everything isnt bad at all.good luck with the install. the ez classic seems easier to install than a lot of other style mounts.post up some pix when its all done
