6'6" boss V on Ford Ranger

Can i put a 6'6" boss Vxt on a 99 Ford Ranger? I was wondering if the mount was the same as the sport duty? For the price ide rather run the V plow over a Snow dogg straight blade...Any input would really be appreciated

I can't see why someone couldn't fab up a mount. We run Blizzards and they are pretty light, but a v around the same weight would be alot nicer for jumping up on sidewalks.

I don't believe it will, I seem to remember a Boss dealer saying in another thread that they are different to discourage people from using the UTV plows on vehicles.

The mounts are much smaller than the sport duty mounts....but it would be easy enough to fab something up. You would also have to put a light tower on it....the harness on the utv is 7 pin, so lights wont be plug n play.

I like the pushbeam idea but im thinking that the whole unit is built on a smaller scale....i thought they used sport duty headgear......when the hell is boss gonna make that vxt for small trucks....i think that would be a hot item

Probably with some spacers I would think the push beam would work. They are pretty narrow

Theres another company that makes stainless plows that will be doing flared wing stainless plows...and for smaller trucks and utvs

Eh I really dont want to do any engineering. I was kinda hoping that it fit the sport duty mount. Boss should really produce that V for smaller trucks such as the ranger and canyon/colorado......i think it would be quite popular to be honest

I have an original 80's Boss 6'-6" Power V on my Sonoma. They didn't make many because they WEREN'T popular. Almost as much money as a full size v-plow, fraction of the size. It is quite handy for tight places, though!
