    I have a used truck mount for unimounts on ford ranger, explorer, and bronco 2. $125/obo. New ones are $350 on ebay, don't know if you can still get them at western.

    The western assembly number is 61950. I have never used it myself. It came with a blade I bought last year, but I needed a chevy mount. I think it's 5 or 6 years old. I've just finished scraping the loose paint off and I'm about to give it a few fresh coats of rust inhibitor and paint. Seems solid all over. I will post pics as soon as I finish with it.

    The mount is bent about 1/2". The main section of the mount is a 30" wide "U-shaped angle iron. In the middle of the 30" span, it is bowed FORWARD 1/2". I have no idea how it was bent the way it is, someone must have been backing up and hit something from the back of the mount. It looks like it was hit on the bottom side. I can't see how you'd do it pushing snow and I don't think it will affect you pushing snow. The guy I bought it from didn't know it was bent, he'd been using it as is. As far as I can tell, there is no reason you couldn't bolt it up to your truck and plow with it. All the other parts look solid and straight.

    Please refer to the parts list at Western's website, or I can email it to you.

    Western's website is www.westernplows.com
