    Guys, while at a dealer yesterday I heard that Western and Fisher are the same company. Is there any truth to that? If so, are part interchangable?

    I know that the parent company is General Dynamics and they are both made in one of the Dakotas. I am unsure if the parts are inter-changeable or not.

    yes it's true
    Fisher, Western, and Blizzard are all owned by General Dynamics

    And for the most part yes fisher and western parts are interchangeable.

    Douglas Dynamics is the parent company.

    They also own Blizzard.
