I have a Meyers plow on my 1990 K1500. The main assembly is mounted into the frame horns and hung down from there. I'm wondering what years that might be some what easy to switch this plow assembly over to. My current vehcike has a 4.3L v6 an 5 speed manual. I'd like to switch over to an automatic and possibly even a short bed versus a long bed. From what I have gathered some manual list 1988 to 1998. If this is correct would my plow setup likely fit any of these years.
Thanks,
Bill

That’s old... what year of trucks are you looking for?
Probably something in the 90s. The only reason I'm looking to change is because of the 5 speed manual. Bad arthritis in my left knee, plus I need to do a lot of back and forth driving to plow my drive which is rough on a clutch. It's about a 1/2 mile through open field and woods. Some tight spots and I thought an automatice would be better and also would consider going to a short bed. Dream vehicle would be a jeep cj or wranger with an autoomatic, but that's out of my fixed income range.

I was just kidding around about the manual. I think your best bet is to find a similar year k1500 truck with an automatic put it on that. That way it is basically a direct swap from vehicle to vehicle.

Hoping to find something just a little later. Trying to find out what years had the same dimensions on the front end frames and then matbe able to do a swap. Supposedly there is a lot of similarity between 1988 up to at least 1998. Just don't know for sure, may need to go around measuring front ends on sales lots.

you could ask storks Plows.com what years they will fit.
