    I have always bought new plows from my dealer, so I've never had to deal with this situation. I am looking for a used plow for one of my trucks- a 1999 F450 Super Duty. Im just wondering does any plow fit any truck and is it just the mount that you would have to buy that is compatible with your truck? Or is it alot more specific than that? I put an ad on craigslist and am getting alot of responses but they are all different makes and models from different years so im kinda confused. I know I could probably call my dealer and ask him, but Im sure that other guys on here have the same question so I hope any answers may help anyone else in the same situation. Any help would be great. Thanks!

    I have mounted a few different plows to my truck. The only thing i was really changing was the mounting brackets.. Other than that it was a snap.

    yea, you need the correct mount for your truck. and the wire harness to fit your trucks plugs.

    other than that, any plow can pretty much fit any truck? That makes it alot easier!

    To assure you can use a plow you are considering use the manufacturers website. go to their vehicle fit guides. Enter the information for your truck, it will give you all the manufacturers recommended fits. That will tell you if a particular plow will work with your truck.
