    I can't find help to do this. I have a 95 C3500 dually w/ a 7.5' Meyers plow, that I want to put on a 95 K2500. Will I need a new mount or wiring?

    Thanks
    Jeff

    8 lug 2500 are the same as 3500 but 6 lug 2500 are the same as 1500 least thats how the fisher truck mounts work.

    I finally got a call back from one of the plow places locally. He said I need a new mount because the 3500 is 2WD and the 2500 is 4WD. Cost ~ $800. Way more than I can afford, I bought the C3500 truck with the plow for $1,800! I was hoping to swap it onto the K2500 for the 4WD and its a solid truck. Any other options/thoughts? Is there a used market for mounts???

    FYI, the 2500 I have is 8 lug so that's not an issue.

    I'm 99% sure its a classic. I'm new to plows, but I've taken off the blade etc. and the light bar and everything is still on the truck. I think that means its the classic based on schematics at the Meyer website.
    Thanks - Jeff

    I am almost positive I have the mount you need but I would need to know more about both trucks to be sure. You can look on E-BAY also but those are selling high because they are 800 new. With you so far away it would be expensive to ship even if I sold it to you at half price you might have 475 or so in it. I think you need a 17089 mount. let me know
