    I searched and saw nothing in older post's so I hope i am not being redundant with my questions. I have a 2000 Silverado 1500 with a 7'6" Snowway. The truck is in need of lots of repairs or replacement may be more cost effective to replace.
    My question is this, if I replace the truck, without needing to replace truck side part's just remove them from the old truck for installation to a new one what am I limited to, Chevrolet or can i go to GMC, 1500 or can I go to 2500? and lastly what year's am I limited to? The downfall to answering my question may be that i have no model or serial numbers to go by this is what stumped the plow dealer I called, i think. Any input would be greatly appreciated considering we had an inch of snow today and time is running out. luckily i do have 2 other trucks but with 60 accounts in a 25 mile radius that 3rd would be awesome.

    Your truck frame will only fit the Chevy and Gmc 99-01 1500 The 2500 is different. Your wire harness will fit other GM trucks. If you want a bigger truck you will only need to change the mount.

    What model plow do you have? Three pin mounting system? Metal or plastic grill plugs?

    Take a picture and I can probably ID it for you.

    The mount you have should fit from 00-06 1500 Chevy/GMC.

    yeah? the wire harness? it was not right for this truck when I installed it so that is all a jumbled mess not even hooked into the lights except parking to set the system. the headlights are a self wired system separate from the truck did not have time or money to get the correct harness when I was setting it up I have a toggle switch on the dash powered from a line direct from the battery. toggle switch feeds to an old foot dimmer switch I mounted to the floor under the matts then lines go out to the wire harness and tapped in. it is real nice once you get into a drive to plow you can turn the headlights of the truck on and light it all up nice

    Basher sorry for the links but i did not get to take pics today
    this looks like my mount

    this looks similar to the plow and the frame looks kind of like mine

    this looks like my power supply lines

    this looks like the plugs for head lights

    and yes I would assume you are correct about the solenoid I have never had the cover off but did not need to put a solenoid in the truck. the only thing is a relay in the truck and the only thing hooked to that is the parking lights.
    and i dont know why i never noticed it before but i found the serial number today ( HTD 201717)
    Thanks for your assistance with this Basher
