    I'm looking to possibly buy a boss rt3 mount for 88-98 GM trucks. Show me what you guys have.


    Thanks, Mark

    No mount, but I do have the headlight adapter for a GM. $25 plus shipping and a set of timbrens for $125 if you are interested.

    I'm probably interested in the adapters, I'll let you know probably tomarrow.

    Your mount does me no good as far as I can tell, its for a nbs (99+) and I need one for an obs (88-98).

    I just traded my classic mount to a dealer in duluth mn about a week ago. I believe they will want about 200-250 for it. The number for the dealer is 218-729-6000.

    Thanks, sounds like you have the parts that I am having trouble finding. I have found plenty of boss blades, but all on newer gms or fords.

    when I traded the mount he only gave me $100 for a trade on a mount for my Ford, but he only charged me $200 for it. Only $100 out of my pocket. He even gave my a brand new box of hardware with it. So I guess I got a pretty good deal.

    I'm pretty sure the frames are totally different. The mounting points are different between the two.

    The mount that he is selling is just like my old one. It will fit 88-2000 classic body style. There was a new style as well as an old style GM truck in 99. Old style was like a 88 pickup new style was like a 2001.

    I think the split year is 2000. I thought the plow mount I need for my 2000 classic is the same as the 90's frame. The mount I have is off of a 2001, and that doesn't fit mine. So if your saying that there is 88-98 mount, then there is a 99 and 2000 classic only mount??? Thanks, Bryan

    Go by the body style, not the year. You could still buy the "old body style" in a 2500 all the way up until 2000 even though the 1500's were the old body style only until 99..So if your's still look's like the OBS, then you need the mount just like the '88 to '98 would use as it will fit '99 and 2000 3/4 ton trucks if it's still the OBS.

    My mount was a LTA03656. On the instructions it said it would fit 88-2000 classic gm. B&B is right, go by your body style.

    It would have worked. If it was still there. That kinda sucks that it sold right away. I should have advertised it myself. Oh well

    Don't worry, it makes it more exciting.
    It would be boring if everyone just said I have this, I want this much, etc.
    Its more entertaining this way. lol
