    Hey there,
    Had a question concerning a used plow Im able to buy. I have an extra truck that we would like to put another plow on. Thought I would try to save some money and buy a good used one.
    I found a western ultramount pro, it came off a 2001 gm truck. I have a chevy 98 1500. According to westerns website, this truck should be able to use this plow.
    My question is, can I still use the same isolation module that came with this plow? Just need new wiring harness for lights? Sort of hard to figure out what I need on westerns website.
    I figure I will need a new mount as well. Can you just order a mount?

    Thanks for any advice

    Go to your local plow dealership and tell him that you have a 98 1500 and need a wiring harness and a new mount. They will be able to get you everything, and get you a price. All you would really need is the two plates that mount to the frame. Also buy some timberns for the front of the truck. Hope this helps

    Timberns are some sort of spring? Where do they get installed?

    Timbrens are a thick rubber cushion that get installed between the two arms on the truck suspension. They add a little boost so the truck doesn't squat as bad.

    push bar (mounting carton) for a 99-07 GM 2500 if you need one.
