    Hello,

    New here,
    Let me first say, I have already searched and read previous posts on this and am still stumped.

    I would love to put a new Boss 8 or 8.6 Super Duty straight blade plow on the truck.

    Boss, Western, Meyer, and Fisher websites say no compatibility for
    the beast.

    Additionally, I read the post about looking for an old Western universal mount. I searched ebay etc. and no dice.

    1) Is it practical or even possible to mount the Boss?

    2) If answer to Q#1 is no, then what similar straight blade plow is best and how do I get it on there.

    Thanks for any insight,
    James

    you can put a mount on it but you will have to make the mount ,it makes it a little tougher if it is a diesel with super cooling .it has been done just a little fab time :salute:

    You can do

    just get old style mount which for 80 to 91 Bronco or F150-F350 they kind wide but cut to short to your Frame


    After 92 too much to fab they have different frame which is box.
