Can I change vehicles with just new push plates?

    Running a MM2 system with an SD blade on my 94 F250. Transmission died and the truck is ready for retirement.

    I have a '96 Bronco lined up for purchase, but I need to confirm that I don't require additional hardware other than that generation of F150 push plates.

    Are all push plates designed so that, no matter what vehicle you have, when the proper plates are installed, they're the same distance apart from each other - so as to line up with the plow?

    Thanks.

    Yes, all more recent fisher plow headgears have the same spacing. Part number 7126 for the 96 F150 trucks.

    Another problem may be if the 1/2 ton suspention on the Bronco can hold the plow off a 3/4 ton .

    lots of guys swap in f250 - f350 2wd twin ibeam coil springs to the 4wd f150 front end.

    ya its a Band-Aid but it works and gets rid of the saggy front .

    Yeah, I've got heavy springs and air bags on order from Summit Racing in preparation.

    Its only a friggin SD blade, it weighs like 500 pounds. A Tacoma could hold that up...well, maybe not.

    I've got Sno-Wings on it, but that's only another 100# or so.

    I'm not excited about the lack of toughness, but I'm super excited for superior maneuverability and better fuel economy when not plowing. My 460 was so bad that I never used the truck except to plow...
