    I know there out there. I have seen them. I thank western has or did have them. You may have to do a little Fab work to get it to fit

    Boss and Western both make a kit that can be modified to fit almost any truck. I think both companies call them a universal mount, but don't quote me on that. Good Luck

    I've heard speculation that the issue isn't the plow, but the lack of strength in the front sector truck's frame. Mitsubishi cab overs are supposed to be of the same issue. Weakness in the frame, combined with the rigors of plowing, mean damaged truck frame.

    Anyone else heard of this ?

    In fort Wayne there is a company that's all they have and for the last 6 years he has had no problem. When he comes back to my store ill ask him what mounts and plow he is using.
