    $250 for the undercarriage seems high or does that include wiring also?

    I paid, 450 To have the under carrage mounted, and wired up.

    I had to buy about 100 worth of parts from the dealer that I Couldnt find. He told me he usually had 300 to do that, but there was some wiring and part of a mount that he had to take off from another plow.

    I thought 250 seemed high just for the undercarriage.
    125-150 seems like a fair price to me.
    I'll have to shop around for the best price. I know I won't take it to the western dealer.
    He wanted 375 just to mount the undercarriage.

    You cant install the mount your self? Probably can be done with a couple buddies and a weekend. I didnt install mine, because I knew I didnt have all the parts, and I needed the truck within the week.

    Ultramount isn;t that bad, but a unimount is more work. If you can get it for $250.00 I would jump all over it. The front bumper has to come completely off the truck, and holes have to be drilled in the frame. Sometimes the bumper is a PITA to get lined back up.I used to install Westerns, and we would get 350-450 to install undercarriage and wiring with headlights and turn signals for Unimounts. Ultramounts are much less labor intensive.
