    I have a 89 f 250 with a 8.5 western on a unimount. I know that the bracket will work up to 91, the there is a bracket from 92-99 available. Here is the question, I need to replace this truck and am looking at several options but I would like to have an idea of what years the brackets are the same for Chevy and Dodge. The thinking is if I buy a earlier model now in say Dodge or Chev, how late will the brackets be good for? I am sure there is a place I can get this information, but I have not found it yet and finally came across this site today. I don't plow much, just the church parking lot and my father-in-laws farm.

    Unimount vehicle specific mount applications

    Be forewarned, the Uni's are and have been obsolete for a few years now so new mounts are hard to find. Often ends up being a treasure hunt. Also if you purchase a truck that never even had a Uni application you'll be forced to purchase an Ultra style mount and then buy an Ultra-to-Uni conversion kit...which equals more $$$.

    I finally found what I was looking for on the Western site. And you are right the uni's are hard to find, but I did find a snowplow salvage yard that has several available, the issue now is finding a truck that I don't have to give up an arm and a leg for. I have been searching craigslist, and all the auto sites. It is fun much, but not much.
