    Just picked up a steal of a deal on a 2 year old 8.5 xtreme v SS with full harness, fish stick and wiring harness off of a 2009 F350. The part number for the truck side that fits this truck (years 08-10) is 7183. I am trying to put it only my 2012 F350 and fisher dealer says that everything should transfer over. The only thing that I'm not sure about is that when you look up the truck side part number for a 2012 (years 11-12) the part number is 7183-1. Holes are not all exactly right when comparing it to the mount on another 2012 F350 I have with truckside already on and working with with another xtreme v. Can anyone help me through this. Thanks in advance.

    Thank you Brad. However I did already throughly read that post and I was simply wondering if anyone else had gone through this experience. I'm wondering if Fisher saying that I or anyone else going through this needing to buy another one is a marketing tool. The mounts are identical other than the two holes that they talk about in the other post. The change of fit for cooling is what I am questioning. Anyone else?

    What does it take 20 min to pull the bumper off and try it. Ive done maybe 8 of these but have always had the correct mounts I dont always go by the directions on these sometimes where they say there is a hole there isnt and if there is a hole there I put a bolt in there weather they like it or not. If you put them on you will know if they are hitting something most of the ones I did had gas engines.I have a set of the -1 I wish had a regular set to compare. Its tough to tell in a picture.I will try to ask a friend of mine to see if he has run into it, he does alot of installs too.
