    I just got a western uni mount plow for my 88 Chevy 2500, plow came off 99 ford e 350, dealer tells me $ 1100 for cradle to mount plow to truck, thats crazy. Any help on swap of cradles or possible info on adapting ford to Chevy or maybe aftermarket mount. Thanks

    I'd look on e-bay. I just bought a new undermount for a Meyer for around $400 and bought a new lift frame from Carnegie Body (Cleveland,OH) for $350. I hope this helps.

    Check with Storks in PA or try Main Street Auto up in ST. Johnsbury, VT ask for Ray, he's been very helpful getting used mounts for me.

    Search snow plow parts on the net. There are places with truck side mounts that are brand new fairly cheap.Try light truck junk yards soon. Now is the season that dead plow trucks hit the yards. They will flame wrench it off for you and even throw in harness too.Then you just have to buy some grade 8 bolts to attach it to the truck. Ask away we can help you make it work.
    Lights are cheaper if you use the web to find them. Keep your eyes open, deals are everywhere at this time of year.
