    thanks i know that the 7168 plates are for the 1500 but they look the same as the 7169 so i was wondering if anyone has ever used the 7168 plates on the 2500 and what the differance was thank you

    No, they will not work. The frame on a 3/4 & 1 ton are not of the same shape as the 1/2 tons. The 1500's are more square, and the 2500's + are more of a rectangle, not to mention the bolt holes are not in the same place as the 1500's, as they also use a frame extension piece on the end of the frame which doubles as a crimple zone.

    There is a set of 7169's for sale on here by PLM for $350....which as you're probably aware, is a very reasonable price. http://www.plowsite.com/showthread.php?t=115165

    in case your wondering the weight for shipping rates...48lbs, and they will fit in a 10" x 12" x 24"box.

    No thank you on the trade as I don't have a use for them. $350 plus shipping unless you want to pick them up in MO! Got a headlamp harness if you need that too.
