    Go with a fisher 7 1/2 minute mount. My friend has one on his 96 and 98 1500 and they plow excellent.You can probably find a decent fisher on craigslist,but I would start looking.The leaves are falling now,next is snow!

    A friend of mine has been running a Western 7'6" with wings on his 98 1/2 ton since it was new. The truck has gone through 2 tranny's and starting to show its age but the plow has performed very well and no major issues. Any 7'6" is going to work well.

    I hate to see my plow go its been great for me the last 5yrs but the truck is no longer being used ( won't pass emissions ) its got 265,000 somethin miles on it. One thing I would highly recommend, have the bottom of the frame horns where the tow hooks and plow mount bolts up reinforced. All it takes is a few small pieces of angle iron. If you look at where the tow hooks are bolted you can see that it is a week point.
