    That's a heavy plow for that truck I do believe!
    Go to the Boss site and see if you can get an install guide. Maybe it has pictures and spec's on the weight and what it will mount on.
    Good luck!

    Ballast I can see a problem but the axle and timbrens should handle the weight. They put them on 1/2 tons and its the same frame and axle.

    I have a whole setup that fits an 84 Ranger / Bronco II wander if it fits yours?
    Too Bad I am in Ohio.

    I just sold it a Month ago $500. It was the standard Meyer mount with a 6 foot angle iron frame plow. Not the 2 meter light duty. If your going to use your truck to plow you have to upgrade Tran's cooling and charging, both are rather wimpy on the Bronco II and Ranger's. Keep an eye on your front axle u-joints,they tend to break them taking the shaft out too.

    I have both a 250 with a plow and a 350 with a plow. I thought the ranger might be nice in the small driveways.

    A Bronco II is even better. It's short and you can turn around and come out the longer drives. I had many that took me 45 - 60 seconds to do. The guys with big trucks loved to see me show up to do the drives.
    Like I said you have to set it up right or your always running the edge on battery power.
