    I WAS WONDERING IF ANYONE HAS ANY PICTURES OF A LEAVE LOADER MOUNTED TO THE FRONT OF THEIR TRUCK. IS THIS LEGAL?? I WANT TO DO THIS TO MY GMC 2500 BUT NOT SURE ABOUT THE MOUNTING. I HAVE A 20 HP. TOW BEHIND GIANT VAC BUT I CAN'T TAKE ANY EQUIPMENT WITH ME UNLESS I HAVE ANOTHER TRUCK/TRAILER FOLLOWING ME.

    If you have a Meyer plow, you can have a welder fabricate a rig to interface with the two large round tubes, and the bracket will come on and off with a couple pins.

    If you don't have a plow, you could probably find a cheap enough second hand plow mount on EBAY, or just buy a new one for about $300 from Meyer.

    I just welded a 2"receiver on the front of my truck for the loader. My other truck has a plow mount so I welded the receiver to it. I haven't got any pics yet but it is the same as a rear mount except that it has a plastic tube that goes to the box.
