    I am looking buying a used 7'6 Ultra mount plow.

    Came off a 2005 Chevy 2500.. I am mounting on an 06 2500.. Western shows same mounting kit for both. Woohoo..

    However the kit the guy has looks incomplete..Besides the lack of bolts what else is there to this mount setup??

    I don't see the receivers? Bolts are no problem, I would replace with new anyway. Are you getting the wire harness's? You can also check the Western site for installation procedures for the mount. This would show you what is needed.

    There is a set of U shaped brackets that go in between the U shaped mounts, I think they are just there for added strength once everything is bolted up.

    Other than this you just need the bolts, which you can get at any local hardware store. I'd be sure to use at least grade 3 or 5 for the bolts.

    Isn't there a piece of flat stock (with the western tag) that contects the two mounts side to side? Without looking there are 2 bolts on each side that hold it on. I know my '02 has it, I'm assuming yours should as well. It's actually a pretty easy install. Marc

    I thought the same thing to when I got my mount for my 01 but according to John(Garagekeeper) the mount didnt come with it. Otherwise, like stated above, there are 2 U shaped brakets that go inside the truck frame where the tow hooks were that seem to be missing.
