    Why are there different mounts for the F250 to F550 trucks. I notice a couple only fit up 99-04 and others fit 99 to 07. Did they make them more universal?

    I have 3 different 99-01 f-250 f-350 that have Meyer MDII Mounts and all 3 look different when they bolt to the truck, but they all work the same and look the same with the bumper back on the truck. Meyer releases several updates on the mounts, depending on the options and year of the truck. Most Meyer dealers can't even tell you the difference. The 2005 up, like said in the last post changed to coil springs, the mounts before 2005 had to contend with those huge leaf springs in the way. I installed an older mount on a 2005 and it fit with a few very minor modification. The opposite is not the same with the newer mounts on an older trucks. I buy what ever mount I can get the best deal on and make it work on the older trucks. I buy my mounts form car dealers in the summer who don't have a clue what the mount they took off a truck they are selling is worth.

    Yes they did make them more universal.
