    I just got a western unimount 7 1/2ft No truck mount or wiring. Plow came off a 2001 2500 chevy.Looking for ideas where to purchase mount/wiring harness. Will only be used for my driveway and 2 neighbors nothing substantial. What upgrades would you suggest for truck if any? Truck does not have plow prep package. Thanks

    I would get on the western website and find all the dealers that are with in driving distance and call about a used mount and wireing . I had to drive 1hr for my mount but saves a boat load most of the time you see them going for 200-300 I got mine for $125 I think .
  5. Western doesnt make the unimount frames anymore. I was able to find one for my '02HD but it was gonna be $650! I guess they make an Ultra mount frame mount with a unimount conversion package...but even that end up being very expensive. I got a used one. I'd look on e-bay or you local newspaper/swapsheet. Maybe you can find one on this site.

    I'd add a tranny cooler and a set of Timbrens to your truck before doing much plowing. Be sure to add some Balast in the bed of the truck. Western site has a handy calculator to determine how much is needed for plow set-up and truck make/model/configuration.
