    I'm looking to see if there are any fab shops in the central jersey area. I may buy a western or meyers 7 1/2 and will need something to mount it on my 97 explorer.

    Yes, Seeley in Farmingdale is Modern. Same place as the previous poster was mentioning. Good luck b/c they are usually really busy and it will take a few weeks for them to do anything in the winter months.

    Thanks. I think I'm going over board. Reading other post I realized that as long as the mounting carton is made for my trcuk, then I can pretty much put a 6- 7.5 plow on it. Unless i'm wrong. im gonna check out a used myers. hope it has everything but the carton, if so i'll be in good shape.

    A 7.5 plow is too heavy for an Explorer. It has a pretty much light duty front end. It would soon start to break front end parts and shafts. A Two Meter plow would be a better choice, less weight,less mold board out front. A good fab guy should be able to adapt a truck side to the Explorer. If you are going to plow a lot buy a good plow for the truck, not a light duty
    "your own drive" kinda plow. I used a Bronco II with 2 meter for 4 seasons I know a little about smaller plow trucks and the pitfalls.
    They can plow, just not what the big dogs can do in a single pass.

    There arent many 2meter plows around. I found a used one but the guy is asking 1600 and honestly after looking at used plows its not worth the price. I'll figure something out. I have seen older explorers with 7.5 blades on them with fabbed mounts.

    I have an older snoway lite commerical plow L2490 7.5 foot plow. The whole thing is only 400lb. I may be selling it next year. It's in great shape. Keep in touch if you have any interest.
