    Hello ,

    Just wondering how big of a hassle it would be to mount an older plow on my new sierra. I know mounts change and such but i'm wondering about wiring and all that good stuff?
    Just curious of it would even be worth trying to put an older plow onto the new truck because I don't want to massacre the thing.:dizzy:
    We could use an older fisher for an example if that works.

    I only know meyers but it takes new light wiring harness/relay and a way diff plow mount for the new sierras.
    they have a way different front end than all my older trucks.

    Actually the fronts did not change much from the GMT 800 (99-07 classic) to the GMT 900 (07-current). I know on the Meyer plow mount selector my old tubular style mount from my 00 2500 would go right on a 09 2500HD. Check the your plow manufacturers site and see if they have a swap chart. That would answer all of your questions 100% But you would for sure need a new wiring harness though
