    Does any know if you can uses the same plow mounts and wiring from the old F450 / F550 and transfer it to the new 2005 F450 /F550's?

    nobody here has the 2005 F450/F550's in stock yet, so I have not been able to see the new frames.
    I've heard that they frames have changed, but don't know this for sure.

    Also, did they stay with the 19.5 wheels for '05?

    Western and fisher both have mounts out for the 05' 350/450/550 SD's. Western part # is 33259. Cant think of the fisher #. These new mounts are quite a bit different than the 04 mount so dont bother trying to fit up a 04 mount to the 05.

    You will need ALLLLLLLL new wiring and a new mount for that 05. The headlights are totally different on the 05. I priced it out for my 04 to 05 switch, don't be suprised when i say 600-750
