    No the mount will not transfer over.

    O.k if the mount will not transfer over where could I find how to modify my mount to fit if it's even possible. I am pretty good with tools but I have always just bought trucks with plows already attached and have learned my lesson on that.

    a welder should be able to make it fit on the truck for you or call a western dealer tell them what you have and that you need to retro fit to your ford does western make anything or were can i get the pieces i need or do you guys fabricate them on.

    If your going to have someone else do the work it wilo be cheaper in the long run to find a used mout to fit the truck.

    Yeah I was going to have someone else do it simply because I do not want to be driving down the road and have my plow fall off lol. But I have to now back off of buying a new truck until next year (unexpected expenses).:mad:

    Search out Western1 here on the site, hes in your area and might have the mount you need.
