    I currently use an 01 Ram 2500 but am looking at an 88 250 to purchase for a backup, and it happens to have an old Meyer manual plow. Is it possible to convert this to hydraulic? What's involved? Is it really worth doing at all?
    Thanks for your input.

    Look at your a-frame and sector. If they have mounting brackets for angling cylinders, your all set. Just get some good cylinders and pump. If no brackets you will have to have some welded on. Still doable but a lot more work...
