    If anyone is using a Bronco to plow how much weight are you putting in it and what are you using for weight:confused:

    You should have approx. 400 lbs secured over the rear axle. Use whatever means of weight you feel safe and secure. P.S, it makes a big difference!! good luck PT.:waving:

    I had an '83 Bronco I used for plowing a couple years ago....around 400 lbs. of sand did the trick....

    Good luck!

    I use an '89 Bronco II 2WD and put about 1000 Lbs. in the rear and plows pretty good.:cool:

    1000 pounds seems like a lot for a 2wd bronco II.

    I run about 300lbs in my '79 bronco by means of hardened bags of concrete. Easy to move by yourself, and usually free from a lumber yard after a summer storm.

    We usually run between 800-1000 lbs in the back of our Jimmy\Blazers,and they plow like a tank.

    Make sure you have whatever you use WELL restrained,as you have no box or cab wall to protect you if it comes flying forward.

    if I am salting also I will have anywhere from 1000-2500 # of salt but 4-6 50#'s seems real comfy. I wouldnt reccoment shoving a full pallet in the back unless you did the f-250 spring swap like I did
