    It's been costly (truck repairs) and long awaited but finally have a plow setup ...
    Everythings Meyer except blade and motor ...

    I spent $500 on fabricating meyer undercarriage to Ford frame, also had to buy new starter motor and used joystick...
    Already picked up 3 accounts so far .....:D

    Built a plow roller as you see in pic 3 works well...
    Still adding timbrens to beef up front end suspension and led mini light bar.....TC

    Just my observation but it looks like you need to move the plow lights up a little higher as they are lower than the plow.

    Skip the timbrens and get coils from a 2wd F 350 diesel. I put them in my Bronco and the front barely moves with the plow up.

    once you get that thing leveled out that'll be a sweet little driveway rig.

    That would be a good idea, but i feel my filling would want to come out on that ride!

    I'm doing a few small lots and a couple drive ways, smaller trucks have limitations, it's not HD....by any means nor would I treat it like one...

    Looks good. I would definitely go for heavier duty springs instead of the timbrens.
