    Hello,

    I have an older 7 foot Western cable-controlled plow that I am told came off a Jeep Wrangler. I want to put it on my 1998 Chevy Silverado for private occasional plowing. I don't plow commercially, and rarely plow for others. I do want to get the lights working so I can drive to work with the plow mounted. I have an old frame that came with the plow, and wonder how I should have it modified so I can use it with this plow. I have a neighbor who can help cut steel plates and weld to modify it to work. What I really need is a good sketch of what the mount should look like, and advice on what height the mount to plow connection should be off the ground.

    Thank you for any and all help and advice you have to offer.
