    Will the new Western Midweight plow fit on a 79 K20? I've been using their quick match program and it says that it will fit a 79 K2500 (diesel, right), so did they use the same frame? It also says the K30 works, too, but no mention of the K20. I can't imagine it wouldn't, I'm just looking for some confirmation.

    Alternatively, you can suggest some other new plows that fit if you know of any.

    73-80 same frame specs for the mounts and 81-91 same specs also.

    chevy used 10 - 20 - 30 and gmc used 1500 - 2500 - 3500 .

    diffrence is few bolt holes between the 2 . but basicly if you need to drill the extra hole or 2 if required . 73-91 frames take the same plow mount brackets .

    and a true k30 4x4 or c30 2wd has a taller frame under the cab to the back than a 1/2 -3/4 ton frame.

    if full electric plow setup then gas or diesel motor wont make a diffrence in parts. if it was a old belt drive fisher then specific brackets for each motor style.

    Your K20 can handle a larger plow but I see Western only offers the 7'6 Midweight in there quick match. Boss and Fisher recommend up to 8'6 HD plows for your truck. I have the Fisher MM2 8'6 HD on my 85 K20.
