    Plowing with a Ranger? Not trying to be rude but can it handle it? Is it 4wd?

    Alright so I'm guessing you bought an older LD series Minute mount, presumably off of a Toyota. You've found that you cannot get a truckside mount for the MMI for an 08 Ranger.

    You've got 3 options as I see it
    1. Take your Toyota mount and have it modified to fit your Ranger.
    2. Find out if the frame dimensions have changed radically from the 96 model (that's the last year Fisher shows a mount for a Ranger) and have it modified to fit.
    3. Sell the entire plow to a Toyota owner and look for a new plow.+
