95 F250, What do you think?

    So I picked up a 98 F250, great shape. After the old conventional mount served me well on my 91 Bronco (for sale btw), I am loyal to western.

    To make this a reliable, cost-effective plow truck, what is my best bet as far as putting a plow on it? I want at 8' or 8.5' ultra-mount, but if I buy the plow from craigslist, then what can I expect to spend as far as mount/wire harness/ install, etc. Should I settle for an older unimount?

    Any advice is much appreciated, as always.

    Go for an ultra. its going to run you around 5k new or you can put one together for around 3500 used. I can set you up with everything you need except the truck mount

    I would say settle for what you can afford...but my .02. Unimout. Ultramounts are still fairly new and not everyone can fix them
