    I now have a 2007 Ford F350 ext. cab 8'bed 6.0 diesel, I had a 2001 F250 with a western plow but I was told it won't mount on the F350. So I need to get rid of that plow and get a new one, I just plow some of my rental units and some family members. The only reason why i had the western plow on the F250 is because it came with it. I don't want to spend a lot of $$$$ for a new one. The western was good but are there new ones out there that I won't have to re-mortage my house to get???? Thanks

    What wrong with the Western? Mortgage your home and buy a Boss V plow!

    If the plow is good. Why not just buy the mount and new wiring for your truck. :confused:

    From what I've been quoted for a new mount and wiring harness plus to install everything I'm not that far from buying a new one. How are those Blizzard plows??? I've been reading about them but haven't seen any prices as of yet on them.

    As for the Western mounting on the new truck.....it depends if its a Unimount or Ultramount. If it's a Unimount they don't make a mount for that truck. Headlight wiring will change with either, but if its an Ultramount you can just buy the truckside mount and harness and be set. If its a Unimount, you can get Ultra brackets and a conversion kit to be able to use the Unimount plow.

    That being said, an 8' straight blade plow would probably be best for your application. Either Western or Boss are good plows. Blizzard makes a good plow as well.

    I'm selling a few used Ultramounts in very nice condition if you're interested. I take trade ins too....... BUT upstate NY is a hike from me ;)
