    No Pattern was Available to me.I made the 2 Heavy Bars First Set Them on The Plow Frame.Then Brought the Truck Up to It and The Fabricated The Truck Side.Keeping The Pitman Arm Clear and The Sway Bar Mount Fabrication Were The Biggest Issues.

    Ive built my own plows and harnesses. One thing to keep in mind, if you build the harness super strong and something wrong happens then the frame weaker part will bend. I would build another support (like Fisher for e.g. used to do) running from underneath the cab part towards the back of the bottom part of the plow harness. Operators plowing snow with a full load in the sander at back run the risk of a cracked frame right behind the front axle (it happened to us) Running a support right under neath to the cab allowed us to use the truck with no more problems there

    Point Well Taken.The older Ford Conventional Fisher Mount Used to Bring Support almost To The Transmission Crossmember.The Twin I-Beam Style Independent Suspension Has Far Too Much Travel and Effectivly Blocks The Ability To Head Towards The Rear as before.
