    Hi all! I'm thinking of buying an '85 g30 work van, and i'm wondering if there is a plow that i can get for it?
    She's got the 350 (4-bolt main) and a 3.73 rear, plus the th350 trans w/ an inter-cooler. She's got the power; is there a mount??
    Thanks!

    Yeah probably wouldnt work to well, if at all. That thing with 2wd will suck at best and they dont have the ride height of a truck, which could cause it to get stuck easier. Although there is a guy around here with a newer 3500 van with the quigley 4x4 sfa conversion and he has a 8 foot meyer on it. But that thing sits higher than a super duty does and well the 4x4 is the only way.

    ford vans of certain years shared a front frame configuration with the pick-up and you could bolt a pick-up mount on it no problem. Of course it will still be a ford van and like all vans worthless in the snow.

    So where in miami do you plan to push snow?

    The Miami kids are all about the blue oval. They wouldn't know a G30 from a V30

    Thank you all for replies! I'm in DE, there's really not usually more than a couple of inches each time it snows, so i really think the van would do even though it is 2wd.
    still don't know what i'm going to do; i'll keep you posted!
