Need Help! What replacement A-frame do I need?

    I have a complete ST 7.5 EZ Mount Classic on my 1999 Chevy K2500 crewcab (this is the old Chevy body style like the 1998 and prior trucks). My A-frame is bent, torn, and overall in bad shape and I don't trust it anymore. I need a replacement. The sides where the handles are measure approximately 40-41 inches from king pin hole to truck mount hole. The Meyer dealers I've talked to tell me I need part # 13612 A-frame but I'm concerned as that part number is listed as having a measurement of only 34 1/4. Is this really the right A frame for my set up or is there another part number I should be looking for?

    I'm concerned that if I go shorter, I may issues with the plow rubbing on my bumper when it is fully angled to either side

    This set up came off a 1996 or so K3500 about 4 years ago and bolted right up to my K2500. I've been using it ever since without any proiblem.

    The 13612 A-frame is used on all Classic mounted ST 7.5 plows.

    13612 is the short " EZ Mount " A frame, 11 X 34 X 23.5

    13306 is the Conventional A frame , 11 X 38 X 23.5

    13306 is 4" longer to accomidate the mount being back further under the truck on the earlier models.
