    Here is my plowing equipment. The pics are from putting my plow on the truck this year. Just repainted truck, and plow got shot with paint when we got it... had it over a year before we put on truck. SO i need to sandblast it and repaint it but ran out of time... I now have lights on the truck, and the frame is painted black

    The other truck has a snowbear and that was from a few winters ago

    Sorry my equipment isn't the prettiest stuff to look at

    The chain in the picture was like maxed out. That was the first day that I had the plow on and we just put the chain in to see if it would lift it. I now have it like 7 links farther down...

    I believe the plow is only a 7'6, It may be an 8'. It is the height that is massive, but it has 6 trip springs on it (Have no idea why you would need that many)..
    I will try to get some more pictures of the trucks up

    NOO. I love my ford. That truck is my baby (well its my dads, but i kinda stole it and told him this winter its mine:laughing:) I personally painted that truck myself with my dad, so makes me like it that much more. The sorry looking stuff are my plows, that need to be painted horribly!!

    here is my chevy stuck in a ditch. I went a little to far and slide down my clients drive into the ditch, lucky I have known them for years as family friends. Tried to shovel myself out, but in the end had to get help from another truck :help:

    The mount on the ford is all custom. I wish I would have made it a little more low-profile, but I wanted to make sure it was strong. Everything is bolted togeather with grade 8 bolts, and then welded... Wish I would have had build pictures

    Heres some more pictures of my plow, and truck. I custom made the mount to fit this truck. I also made a new control plate that fits in the cubby hole i never used. The red switch is my power to the pump (didn't want to cut into ignition wire), I plan to make the controls a wood grain also to keep the original look

    The plow is a meyer 7'6 ( i know its small but got it for a REALLY good price)

    Thanks. I was hoping people liked the looks of it. Dad wants to put the bumper back on somehow or another but who know if we will or not. Kinda like it how it is, looks like a real "work truck" wesport

    the 80-86 trucks are sweet. i really like that body style. sadly i had to recently got rid of my 86.

    if interested, i saved the 6 gauge cluster out of it. its just like what you have, but where yours is blank in the middle, mine has a tach. Its plug and play. real simple swap. just take out the old one, and put in the new one. all the wiring for a tach is already there from the factory. i also have a mint bezel i'll throw in. PM me if interested.

    So I have been doing some reading on other posts, and I just was hoping I could get some opinions on my mount (for the ford). I think it will be strong enough just would like some other opinions after looking at it. Thanks
