And i have no idea how these push plates even mount up. I should of bought a Fisher!!! does anyone have any pictures of the mounts hooked to there truck?

    I will look at home tonight for pictures. I took a few of the plow bracketes mounted to my 2004 F250. I ran into a similar problem. Guy i bought my 32 from said it would fit 1999-2004. Turns out they were 2005+ mounting brackets. The center section is the same, the side brackets are different. Those also cost a ton of $$$$$ just like the wiring.

    Go to your local car parts store and buy a reel of wire and some switches. Plow wiring is simple.

    The complete mount is made of of five components. The center section and two of the side memebers will fit 1999-2005+. The bracket with the (3) holes is 199-2004 only. If you have a 2005+ bracket it will not work.

    Forgot to mention, you will need to tack weld a 12" rod to the side of the nuts and fish them thru the frame on the side brackets. I had to buy those brackets so I got new hardware. I'm not sure if you can purchase the nuts and bolt by themselves or if its only sold in a kit. If i remember correctly, the all four side brackets minus the center tube was $350.

    sounds like a cluster. I think i have all the brackets, so i will just go to napa and buy all the nuts and bolts i need from the install instructions.
