    hey everyone hope its a good day where you are,
    wondering if anyone knows if a conventional plow set up on a 1988 1500 will fit on a 1997 k1500? thanks for the help im very new to this so take it easy on me as this may be an outlandish question thanks in advance.

    It sounds like you're speaking about specific truck and plow that you haven't defined.
    Anything can be retro-fitted - how much work and expense is it worth?

    sorry for the lack of info

    I have a 98 k1500 never been set up for a plow Im wondering if an old conventional style fisher plow off of an 1988 chevy 1500 will bolt up on my newer truck or if the frame design etc is totally different.

    Use the fisher quick match system on their site to see if the part #'s on the push plates are different


    btw, where in NH are you from?

    :waving: Aaron, the truck frame's are the same between the '88 and the '97 1500's (same body style). You may have a bolt hole or 2 you may need to modify but other than that the frames are the same basic width and shape.
