    How different are the mounts between different models. Can the HTS fit the truck underbody mounts of a Suburbanite? Are the three extension wiring plugs the same between the HTS and Suburbanite? Any assistance on this matter would be great....

    The Suburbanite doesn't share mounting components with any other Western plow, as it does not use the Ultra Mount system.

    The HTS is a Multiplex hydraulic/wiring system. It only has two electrical plugs, so it is not compatible with any three plug system.

    Which other Western models beside the Suburbanite use a 3 plug system??? Can the receiver brackets be replaced to fit other models? What about the Ultra mount to Uni mount conversion kit???

    All Ultra mount straight blades, except the very early two plug ones without isolation module systems. And MVP V-plows, But not MVP Plus, Wide-Out, or HTS.

    The Suburbanite doesn't use receivers.

    The HTS receivers are specific to the HTS, but they fit the regular Ultra Mount truck mounts.

    It fits any regular Ultra Mount truck mount.

    My old Suburbanite had receiver brackets that could be removed during summer and held in place with two pins on each.....

    That's correct. I guess I sorta mis-spoke. They do have a reciever of sorts... It has a spring loaded pin assembly on it where the plow attaches. I forgot that this part was removable from the truck mount.

    Would I be able to replace this receiver body with another receiver body to fit a different Western plow with 3 plug system??

    No. The suburbanite receivers are different than the Ultra Mount receivers. Plus, I'm pretty certain that the Suburbanite truck mount isn't heavy enough to carry a full size plow.

    I am referring the the Wide Out (900lbs), more like the Middleweight (500lbs). Thanx for all the assistance.
