    Hello,
    I recently bought a truck that belonged to the local school system. It is a 99 chevy k2500 that was used as a snow plow truck in the past. It has a Boss mount on the front and appears to be all wired and ready would just need a plow and a controller to operate one.
    Would I only be able to use a Boss plow? Or could I find a universal setup that might work and be any cheaper?
    I have no Boss dealer or any snow plow dealer near me. This would mainly be used to do a few small business lots and a few residential drives. It probably would not be used more than 3-4 times a year.
    Any help would be great. Thanks

    Where are you located? As mentioned, guys on here are always selling them. Give Craigslist a shot too.

    I'm not familiar with boss plows, so I'm not sure how many different mounts they've had through the years. You may have to find a certain plow to match your mount.

    I am located in eastern New Mexico, probably will be hard to find much used equipment without driving or shipping something. I will check out the used postings here though

    Need to know how many pins on the plug. Boss used a few different styles. Always helps to put up pics.
