    Found a 94 full size bronco 5.8l 351w 63 miles has an old behind bumper western plow mount and pump. Has anyone plowed with this truck? Also what type of plow will this accept. Thank Patrick

    i seen one once that was shot on the front end. most guys around here use old blazers instead of the ford bronco. front end is better on the blazer i guess.

    I see a lot of Bronco's plowing snow around here. You need a regular duty 7 1/2 foot Western plow for that mount and truck. Don't try to go big or heavy (plow) the truck will not fair well or be safe.
    Just beware of old plow trucks!
    They can have a boat load of new parts and repairs needed due to the past life they led.
    That's how my truck got the name " The Big Red Drain".

    i plow with a 95 f-150, and i have installed heavy duty coil springs on the fron, and i am getting ready to add air bags, and 2.5" leveling blocks due to adding 3/4 ton rear leafs in the truck. I have found you can make the f-150/Bronco just as strong as a 3/4 ton truck. There is a nice catalog LMC truck that is good refernce for parts. You can use 3/4 ton tie rod assembly for these trucks, and use sprngs from the mid 80's 3/4 ton when they used coils in the fron. From what i have heard the axles are just about bullet proof in these trucks. Hope this helps

    I have a 94 full size Bronco (Eddie Bauer) with the 5.8 liter. I have a 7.5 Meyers Poly with a classic mount (about 500 lbs). I installed a set of airbags inside the front coils as the weight of the plow will cause the alignment geometry to change due to the front end design. The Bronco seems to handle the plow OK.

    I have had the plow for 3 winters and since I got it, no snow in central KY. :cry:

    Big snows every year prior. Maybe this year I'll finally get to use it. :gunsfiring:

    I need HELP/advice

    I have a 94 bronco 4x4 and am tryign to mount a used meyers classic style plow that I bought. The crumple zone on the frame near the front looks like it'd be tough to fabricate an brackjet to

    what do your mount brackets look like? Do they mount to that waxy area?
