    I am having a western mid weight put on Friday and have a question. If I decide to switch the plow from my Tahoe to a pickup later on can I switch to the pro series without buying a new mount?

    i'm not following the question. are you looking to:

    1. midweight on tahoe
    2. swap midweight to pickup truck (with possibly new truck side and light wiring)
    3. then upgrade to a pro plow at some later point on that same pick up?

    if that is the case then it is possible if the midweight uses the ultramount 2 then you can upgrade the blade at any point in the future. but that being said you have to make sure the 1/2 ton pickup you choose can handle the wight of a pro plow. to be honest i'm not sure the tahoe can handle the midweight.

    That was my main concern on the Mid weight. I first wanted to buy the HTS and the dealer fudged the numbers and said he could put a Mid weight on.

    Your truckside mount, no. The frames changed in 2000 model trucks

    Your 1999 Tahoe has a 67865 mount and a 2000 1/2 ton will have a 67960-1 mount.

    Your harness might work depending on what headlights you currently have (2B or HB3/4) Both were available options on the 1999 Tahoe. And that also depends on the year of truck that you actually get as your new truck.

    you also have to think that the HTS and midweight are going to be harder to sell and sell for far less because they are more homeowner type plows.
