    I can't comment on that truck but the mount was very straight forward for my truck as was the wiring. Very simple install.

    There really is no tips on this one, GMs bolt up pretty easy. Sometimes you have to make a hole or two. Just measure twice as the rule goes. You'll prolly get the left side and right side turn signals mixed up so just check before you tuck away all the wiring nice and tidy.

    New body style or the classic one?

    Figuring it is a classic since you have the 5.7 in it (does it look like my picture?)

    Truck Mount: 16062130 GM '88-'00 CLASSIC

    If you're the New Body Style

    Truck Mount: 16062150 GM 2500/3500 '99-'10

    Well it wasnt snowdogg it was dealer but it was fix have wait now on truck mounts but going do the wireing and the plow side
    I should caught it but I thought dealer had different thing then Snowdogg site
    Key word is 5.7 motor should been known as the old truck style It can happen to anybody
    Think who at fault is GM for building 2 different frames in 99to 2000

    The engine is the clue, but the dealer should know better. Especially if you're shipping something out so far.

    I hate GM man there no room for anything Fords are easyer to mount
    This Chevy have to drill hole in the firewall Pretty much got wire ran still waiting on the right truck brackets Think tonite will put blade side together have it ready to hook up
