    This thing was almost lost in this guys yard.Looks like new.He said it was on a GMC,but used to have it mounted to an f 350 using the GMC mount and some pretty fancy welding,bolted It on though.I don't think i want the mount and we priced it with out it.I would really rather get the factory mount,just want to feel like i am doing the right thing.I will try to talk him out of it if i can and post pics.I will post pics when i pic it up next week......$2,000 bucks Lovin it already.Hes going to pull it out with his truck and show me all works well.....Is there a good-place to pick it up with a bucket and chain when i trailer it home.......saving lotts of money is better than earning it sometimes!!!!!!!!!! i am also going to have to pay attention when he starts to break down the electrics,cause it did come off GMC and going from a f 350 to another f 350,or should i buy a light kit to make it easy? Sorry for the long post,just a lil x cited bout this deal and gettting going this winter Please give me the good the bad and i already know ugly.

    You need to post the years of the trucks involved and the brand of the plow.
    My Evil cousin "JuryRig1" may make a mount / lights work. It may not be safe but he don't care.

    The years of trucks are important to. Year from and Yr going to. Frames have change points over the years
    I had a Meyer plow and mount from a S-10 went on a Bronco II with a western Cable controlled pump off a dump truck. Worked fine.
