    Hey all, im new to the site but not by any means to plowing! I havent done it for a few years (sold the last truck) but I have the itch to get back in this year with some residential accounts. I'm looking at the Western Ultra-Mount pro 7'6", my last was a uni-mount and it never gave me any trouuble.

    Next question, how hard is it to install yourself... I just cant see paying what the stealership wants for it. My truck is a 2005 Silverado 1500 Z71.

    Look forward to talking to all of you, as well as the comming snow!!

    If you can operate a wrench you can install a snow plow. The toughest part is the wiring and Western makes great directions. If you are mechanincally inclined at all you can do this no problem.

    I was thinking about installing the plow myself, then I thought, for one, where am I going to put the 900lb plow when I go buy it, and 2, how am I going to take it from where ever I put it when I bought it, and put it on the ground? Call over 6 friends to move it?

    Old trick

    The dealer would probably put it in the back of your truck, and with the tailgate down it may just fit depending on the length of your box.

    And before someone else says it, to get it out --- get some speed going in reverse then slam on the brakes! :)

    4-6 guys should do it if you get some beer ready for afterwards!

    Cheers, GL
