    I have a 06' GMC 2500 and I wanted to know if an 8 yr old Western plow will fit my truck. I know I need a vehicle specific bracket for my truck, but will this old plow (which is in very good condition) fit with the new bracket?

    thanks

    A Unimount model plow will fit a Unimount mount. An Ultramount model plow will fit a Ultramount mount. A Unimount plow will fit an Ultramount mount with the conversion bracket.

    Think I decided on a 7'6" Boss Standard Duty. What do you think?

    Well thanks for the feedback everyone. I hope this deal goes through. I found the Boss plow and the bracket for my truck , used in great condition and for under $2000.
