    Well, Ryan took my pickup, so it was time to get the Bronco ready. There's still some work to be done, but it could plow today if need be. Those springs are amazing! If anybody's looking to plow with a coil sprung, 1/2 ton Ford, get the sever duty springs for a 2wd F350 diesel. They barely move with the plow up.

    hey, AFFECONIG, i have a 94 f150 4x4 with the coil sprung ttb front end that im putting a plow on for this winter, just wondering what size tires your running ( i have the same wheels also) and if youve changed any other suspension components with the 2wd 1ton springs, im planning on doing something similar because yours holds that plow like a champ!

    I didn't change anything else inthe front end, just the new springs. Yeah, I think the front is sitting a little higher, but I'm hoping the springs will settle and it'll even out. It isn't my daily driver, so I'm not too concerned. This is my sixth Bronco and my second all white one. The other one was much nicer looking. Oh, I'm running 33x12.50s. I'd rather have something smaller, but the price was right... I picked the truck up as a trade deal. I had an 88 Volvo 740 wagon with the drivetrain from a 93 Mustang that I traded for the Bronco and $500. I think I made out pretty well. The car was awesome, but the truck makes more sense.

    BNC - YEAH! I plow courts for the city. I think I saw one of you guy last year at the Walgreens on Rickert. You might not have seen me though, there are a couple Broncos plowing courts. I had a 91 that was black and gray with a Meyer plow on it last year, an 89 K5 the year before that, a 91 F250 the year before that... I"ve been doin the same area for years and I always bought a truck in the fall and sold it in the spring untilt this year.

    didn't that one you bought from REPOMAN? I remember saw his bronco like that stuck in ditch.

    look nice bronco and please don't drive in winter until you proof paint like por15 for under frame and body. I saw bronco at junkyard that have 80,000 miles but it plow so I say it really bad shape than you think it was 1995 but everything is rust to death.

    I was actually cleaning it up last night in preperation for por15. The Bronco I had last year had more hole than floor and I'd like to avoid that with this one. It gets cold and exhaust fumey in there without a floor...
