    My Jeep is not cutting it, I need a bigger plow, and the Jeep is shot, so I want to pick up a used Superduty that has never been plowed and install a plow on it. Question is, my plow set up is in really good shape and I know what I got, since I've gone thru it, although the plow is too small 6-6". I can pick up used Superduty truck side brackets for 100 bucks, so now my mechanicals can go on, but I would like a 8-9' blade, can I pick up a blade and install on my A-frame, or just a whole blade/A frame assembly and hook to my mechanics ? I can get a blade for like $500 and just resell my blade. Of course I can sell my whole Jeep setup and buy a whole Superduty setup, but it seems complete setups are running bigger money and I might be ahead of the game doing it piecemeal ?

    I think I would find a decent used plow instead of all the work of trying to piece it together...

    Maybe your right, maybe I can get a few bucks for my set-up as a complete unit ? Is 9 footer too big for 3/4 ton Superduty ?

    I'm not sure if you'll get more bang for your buck to sell as a package deal or separating the two. And yes a 250 super duty will handle a 9' pretty easy.

    What brand/model is the plow?
