    Could someone tell me if the picture below is a unimount? I purchased this old 1997 F150 truck and would like to add a plow. The truck has the mount and joy stick controller so I thought I would look for a plow that can use the existing mount.

    Many thanks!

    No, that's not a unimount. Your missing a few parts that a Unimount has. And it's not lined up like one. I might be able to take a pic of my mount in a few days and post it on here for you.

    Many thanks for the reply. Any idea what type of mount it is? It has a Western name plate on it but nothing else.

    It is a uni-mount, just missing the little bars that hang from the top two brackets.

    Why do you think it is not a Uni-mount set up?

    Many thanks for the replies. I'll check the unimount parts drawings to see if I can figure out what's missing. The next step is to try to find a plow to fit it in Orange County, New York. I'm just going to be using it to plow my driveway..

    Any ideas on the cost and source for a plow in my area would be greatly appreciated or any advice on a different plow set up for limited use.

    The only things you're missing on the mount are the link arms and the pins that attach them.

    Link arms: Western p/n: 63497 (2 required)
    Attaching pins p/n : 63354 (a pair of 3/4" grade 5 bolts will do the same job)

    Thanks for the reply. I'll check out the parts and thanks for the tip on the bolts.

    I'm sorry. That was embarrassing. lol Well I thought that the mount was lined up a little differently. But I guess not. I have a decent excuse, haven't seen a Unimount for about 4 or 5 months now ;)
