    I am purchasing a used plow to mount on my 07 f150. The mounting bracket that i need 99100642 isn't made any more, and i cant seem to find one. I will have a mount from the other vehicle that I may be able to modify, but with all the truck and plow swapping going on this stuff must be out there some where. Any ideas.

    Im sure you've tried, but have you tried talkin to sno way? I know we've had a few people come in with some antique sno way plows, and was lucky enough to find mounts direct from sno way. Of course, all these trucks were chevy's.. ive never inquired about a ford mount.

    I talked to the nearest dealer, and they didnt have any answers for me on new or used.

    Im sure you can find one, like i said ill ask them tomorrow while im on the horn with them for ya, and post it up if you'd like. If they dont have one, Tom usually has a good idea of what dealers have what layin around, altho he's on vacation this week, maybe once he returns, he could locate one for you, if there isnt any in stock

    Did you call the shop yesterday and talk to Kim? That's not enough plow for that truck. The dealer network doesn't show any sitting around in inventory. You are not the first request for one of these mounts I've had this season. Maybe Brew or one of the other DSMs know of some not on the list but I doubt it has I have looked.

    I know the plow is a little small, but I am only doing my own driveway. I did'nt think it would be such a problem to find a mount. The mount that came with it is for a 2001 Nissan Frontier. maybe I would be better off to sell this one to some one that has this plow truck, and pick up something else. Is there a classified section on this site? The plow is in great shape. An ST model with DP option. snow foil, wireless remote and everything needed to mount on a 2001-20?? Nissan Frontier.

    OK so maybe I will keep this plow. I still need to come up with a mount. Does anyone have specs for the mount I need (07 F150), or pics, or maybe even a mount from another brand plow that I could then modify using the nose piece that I have. The mount I have fits an 01 Nissan Frontier, and is not even close.Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, Maurice
