    I have been looking on the internet for western mounts for a 2002 chevrolet 3500 dually dump. the truck is 4x2. I have a western unimount 8'..... just wondering where i could find this mount.....I have a unimount on my 96 2500 chevy thats also 4x2, would that mount work on the newer truck? another option, I do have the uni to ultra conversion so i would be able to use the unimount on one of my other trucks if need be. Should I just put an ultramount on the 3500 and use the conversion?
    Also, would the wiring on my 96 chevy work on the 2002, its calling for the HB3/HB4 headlamp style on the 2002.... what headlamps are in the 96... anyone know?
    thanks

    I highly doubt that the mount off the 96 will work on the 2002. Your best bet would be to call the dealer. It takes mine less time to find that out for me by crossreferencing part numbers than it does for them to yell "abuse" when I bring a part in.


    Anything other than Unimount wiring harnesses, the cartons themselves are very hard o find.

    well I have rewired the plow for the newer style wiring because I was originally going to put a ultramount on it.. I didnt figure the mounts would be the same

    I believe the wiring from a 96 2500 would be different on a 2002 3500

    If B&B, Crash, or Repo jump on here they might be able to tell you

    I know from 88-99 2wd 2500/3500 would be
