    Are you sure it is a Ultramount?

    look at Ebay and Craigslist. I find alot of misc. Western parts there.
    Be careful, make sure your light duty truck can handle that plow.
    I doubt you have "plow prep", and I hear that if you put a plow on a F250, without plow prep, it could void the warranty.

    By any chance you have the part number just to double check i don't know what it needs all i know is i have the blade and i need the mount and electronics. like i said this is the first time i would actually be plowing with my truck everytime i rode the plow was already on and ready to go.

    And no i don't have plow prep they didn't offer that back then. it's just a standard 2wd 302 ext cab f-150 i have to get new coil springs up front to stiffen it up and some weight in the back but i was told im only gonna be doing driveways so the truck should be able to handle it as long as i keep up with the snow.

    Works till you need 4x4. Then you screwed. I had a 91 factory hd half-ton 4x4 in highschool. Still I don't think it would have made much of a plow truck. A lot of strain on that light front end. Good luck...
