1991 F250 to 2000 F150 Transfer?

    I just "procured" a Meyer ST 7.5' plow with classic mount #17092 from an older F250. http://www.meyerproducts.com/upload/forms/17092 Mtg. 1-651R5.pdf.

    Thoughts on transfering to a 2000 F150? The clevis frame uses removeable side members and braces. I'm sure it's too good to be true to think that I could get different side members and braces to mount up to my F150. Any chance that this could be done? I believe I can buy the 17108 frame, but if I could save cash and reuse the 17092 that would be great.

    Also would appreciate your comments on using my standard 2000 F-150 4x4 without any special plow package. I'm only going to be plowing my driveway, and maybe one or two family members. I would be traveling around different towns with the plow, and highway. What are the minimum additions I should put on the front end? Alternator?

    Thanks for your advice!!

    The clevis frames are not the same width between those two applications so you'll still need a complete (and of course different) mounting carton.

    A set of Timbrens on the front and a few turns on the torsion bars will do the job to support the plows weight.

    An upgraded alternator, battery, and cables is never a bad idea on a plow equipped truck. And if it's auto trans equipped be sure it has a heavy duty trans cooler on it. If not add one.
