    ok well here is how i started out last year had a western plow set up and was gonna rig it to work on a bronco II i had but it lifted up the rear end when i picked up the plow so that wouldnt of worked out so sold the pump, lights, and controller then i traded a guy the plow and bracket for this simplicity plow mower it worked great for about 2 good uses from plowing my drive then the rear end gave out

    so i had to look for another plow truck or mower but ended up finding this bronco II for $200 and found a plow that was made for it for $150 so i used that my other bronco was in the shop getting the front end worked on and this one i got had water in the oil but i just wanted it for my drive and a couple other people that were close to me so i could plow there drive

    well the last big snow storm we got i plowed 3 peoples drive ways went to finish plowing my own drive and i got 10ft and blew the motor so wasnt too worried cause it was getting toward the end of the season

    so this year i have been looking for a good plow truck and they are still a good amount of money and i didnt wanna have any thing rigged up so i have the bronco II that was in the shop all last winter fixed up and ready to be used as a back up im getting another mower whats gonna be used as a back up

    but for now i got this truck 1999 dodge ram 2500 4x4 5.9L auto gas with a 7.6ft curtis plow set up the plow isnt that old and it works good BUT the BAD thing is the tranny is shot in this truck so im looking for a used one but if i cant find any thing cheap and good im just gonna get a reman for $1200 with a 3 year unlimited mile warrenty which would be great cause average junk yard tranny is 700-900 with alot of miles on them

    so here are pics of some stuff i have enjoy

    and this is the bronco i have had for a while its pretty much an off road on i use it to move stuff around or push stuff on the trailer or this year its gonna be a back up you can see why i had to do the front end

    [​IMG]

    and that trailer the bronco was on was my old trailer that i got off ebay for $600 3 years ago 6.6ft by 16ft and its beat up sold this for $700 this spring

    then the trailer i got the truck on is my new trailer 7ft by 16ft got it off craigslist for $700 and its great for hauling cars and trucks lol but not so good for hauling mulch but i can build sides

    o and pulling that truck home with my 2002 dodge ram 1500 4x4 auto 4.7L motor was a haul couldnt do over 55mph or the trailer and truck would swap bad so had to drive 65 miles on the highway at around 50-55mph at night

    and my truck did pretty good pulling about 8,000-9,000lbs lol
