    The western unimount plow is an older mounting system. are you looking to buy a used plow?

    Yeah you'll have to give us a few more details. It's

    1-conventional (old)
    2-Unimount (early 90's-02)
    3-Ultramount (02-current)

    Conventionals retain the pump, lights and mounting assy on the truck BEHIND the bumper, and uses a cable driven elec/hyd pump. Uni is where the entire system disconnects from the truck and stays as one complete unit aside from a truckside undercarraige (uses all elec). Ultra is similar to Uni but a more advanced easier to use mounting system.
