    I am planning on upgrading my truck this year to a 3/4 ton or possibly a one ton. Current vehicle is an 04 dodge 1500. My Fisher dealer says everything transfers over except the push plates and headlight adapters. I don't know what vehicles, if any, these items would work on so if anyone could tell me what these are worth and maybe throw in a couple part #'s that would be great. Thank you for any input!

    I think you dealer is wrong, the 1500's are completely different, and the frame will not work on a 2500 or 3500. The older dodge trucks, pre 2002, all used the same frames, but when the new body style was introduced, the 1500's went to a independent front suspension, where the 2500-3500 trucks remained a solid front axle.

    Hmmm..... They told me all I'd need is new push plates and lights adapters. Doesn't surprise me. My dealer is a complete ****** unless you own a fleet of vehicles.

    Yea our main dealer here in Chicago is the same way, unless you buy from them once a week, they dont want to deal with you.. Im 99% sure the frame you have on your 1500, will not fit the bigger trucks
