    Ask all the questions you want, thats why this site is here.
    Unimount is what western calls one of its "quick" mounts, the other is the ultra mount. With the unimount, everything including plow,lights, hydraulic components, etc is removed from the truck when you are not plowing with it. Only the "truckside" mount remains on the truck. The truckside mount bolts to the frame on your truck. See the picture of the unimount plow and truck. Also go to http://www.southford.com/snow-ice/westernunimount.htm there you will find a good explaination of the unimount system.

    As far as the F-150 goes it will be fine with a western 7'6" plow. you should think of some timbrens (do a search for them on this site and on the internet) if the front end sags at all. Aux trans cooler would help also if you don't alredy have one.

    If your buying new and looking to go with a western, go with the Ultra-mount system with the isolation module wiring. The ultra is much easier to put on and off the truck with a higher ground clearance in the off season. The iso module is a great improvement over the old relay type wiring.

    Where in MI are you?
