    I would say it's a fair deal at best. I would try to get it for a few hundred less if you're interested. I can't tell which mount it has, but the RT-3 is simple and quick. I run a 8'2 Boss Poly V and I've been very happy with it. The hydraulics are quick and the RT-3 mount is easy to take on and off.

    Just make sure all the hardware is with it, and it should fit your truck without any real fabrication. If you're not familiar with the install, I would just pay a dealer to do it for you. It will probably cost somewhere around $200-$300, but it would be worth it. I have taken a Meyer blade/controls off one truck and put it on a different one, and it can be a job to do if you don't have a garage (in this weather) and the right tools. If you have the time and space though, go for it. If the seller doesn't have the instructions, you can probably download them somewhere or ask around on Plowsite.

    thanks, I have the space and tools because my dad is a full service mechanic and he owns the businesses and it is a family businesses so I have access to every tool I would ever need and he is very knowledgeable about every thing that i would need so i will probably do the install along with his help.
