    I just bought a 1996 F250 crew cab, short bed diesel 4x4 for plowing and recreation purposes but blew most of my savings on the truck without a plow...

    I was thinking if I installed (NEW) a western ultra-mount, isolation module and handheld control... then I could get by with a used blade this winter and just have to get a new blade next year???

    Am I correct?

    Besides the ultra-mount, iso module and control is their anything else im going to need to have installed that wont typically come with a used blade? Where is the cheapest place to find these items on net or near Detroit, MI? I know mechanics that will install the items in the garage probably cheaper then what a authorized western shop would...

    Any help would be appreciated...
