    its not a unimount its a conventional cable plow-the old style. the pump and plow lights stay on the truck where the unimount system is all one unit

    It is a conventional Isarmatic cable pump....

    did you get the control box with 2 cables for the up/down, left/right function?. As for the mount...looks like it is all there but I couldnt tell you if it fits your rig. Mounting holes line up????

    That's not the mount for a 92-96 F250, I know that. You might have to "make" something work if you want a conventional plow on that truck, and definitely if you want to do it with that you have there. I have a Unimount mount for your truck if you decide you want to go that route, but you'd need a Unimount blade then too. Good luck.

    you need a mount for a 98 f250 light duty, which just so happens to be the same as a mount for 98 f150. its that easy...

    That mount is for an 80-91 F-series truck...

    I have that exact setup on my 82, and it works great for how beat up it is.

    Finding a mount for a 92-96 truck is difficult for sure. I have been looking for one for a while now.

    Yeah, he said LD, in which you'd be right, but they didnt put a 5.8L in the LD F250's

    I guess he needs to clarify what he has.
