    Brand new to this biz, bought some used equipment, truck, plow, etc. Got everything I need, climbed under my truck to see about installing my unimount. Found that the guy who had this truck before me welded a bunch of heavy plates onto the frame for his plow mount. Before he sold the truck, he just cut his mount off leaving the plates. I'm pretty sure my mount will not go on over this junk. Any suggestions on how to get this off or another option? I thought about a cutting torch, but it would be easy to wreck the frame if one wasn't careful/skilled. I have a grinder, but that would take forever.

    A good welding shop should be able to torch them off quickly
