    I have an old western cable operated plow that was on a 80's Ford F-250 and I want to put it on my 85 f250 diesel. Difference is radiator size. Does anyone have any detailed pictures of the bottom frame mounts? What all does it take to fabricate mounts for truck frame?

    the only difference is a drop on the thrust frame for the diesel trucks. fabricating one should not be too difficult. or call up some local dealers. you'd be surprised what some of them have sitting on the shelves after all these years.

    not too likely you would find anyone who has modified this mount for a 30 year old truck.
