    half ton they are push plate 7138 for the mm / mm2

    they are a dime a dozen

    but my guest is you buy a conventional plow in that case you need AR289E and they are rare but you can convert your conventional head grear to a mm1 by making a lower gear so you can mount it on 7138

    Conventional Fisher mount is illegal on that truck.

    Any truck manufactured after 1/1/94 cannot use conventional mount plates.

    It is a conventional hydraulic plow...

    Couple questions....

    -Why is it illegal?
    -Is it illegal all over the country?

    It's a Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard. I don't know the exact verbiage, but I believe the nuts and bolts of the issue is that no permanent mounted device can extend beyond the front bumper.

    Thats kind of a bulls**t law if you ask me...whats the difference between me mounting my push plates and some big red neck (no offense) mounting a big cow catcher on the front of their truck? Its mounted know...well see how it goes i guess? Two chances right?
