    I have this plow and plow frame with pump, and it was welded to the front of a 1989 Bronco. I want to take this plow and put it on the front of a 1998 Ford F-150...was wondering if anybody had any idea's on how I could do that and if they make an adapter plate to where I can bolt the plow frame to the truck? Thanks!

    That plow has already been modified from what it fit originally so where would you even begin to find an adapter, that looks like a 70-80s plow never designed to go on a Airbag truck.

    Anything can be fabricated but if you cant do it yourself you'll spend way more than you could find the correct plow for.

    If I remember correctly that 98 Ford 150 couldn't handle much weight but then again that Western wasn't that heavy

    Yeah, I never took into consideration that the '98 has airbags....I can get my hands on welder, so if I have to weld it on, it won't be a big deal....and you're right, that plow isn't really all that heavy...my neighbor and I moved it with his 2 wheel cheap dolly he bought, and didn't break the dolly!

    That setup really isn't appropriate for a newer truck, especially with an airbag, that is why everything went to removable headgear. I wouldn't corncob engineer a mount on a newer half-ton truck b/c the frames have crumple zones etc. Mounts specific to the vehicle are designed with crumple zones and strong points in mind.

    cant you just swap the A frame on the plow out for a unimount set up then find a unimout head gear for your truck?
     
  6. I had the same plow and simply took my truck and plow to a fab shop. They made a bracket for me that allowed me to bolt the plow right onto my 97 Ram and it worked like a charm. Cost me $200

    I probably could, but money is kinda tight for me now, and this is the only truck I can really get my hands on and this is what I have for a plow.

    Yeah, I'm a mechanic, so I could probably make up something like that too....

    What I wanna know is, how many inches off the ground does the plow frame have to be? Where I work, we deal with the Snoway plow's, and they call for 8-10" off the ground...
