    so Im selling my B2..

    [​IMG]

    then im buying this..

    [​IMG]

    1996 f150, 300 engine, 5 speed, fisher plow, inspected and ready to go, plenty of new parts, low milage.

    what do you guys think of the fisher blades?
    I plan to paint the plow red, and the truck a navy color, and give her 2 or 3" of lift to give her more of a 1 ton stance.

    also seen this truck on the net and really liked the look of her, anybody know if it belongs to a member on here?

    Don't even post pictures of your 7.3. It'll make everyone who ever has wanted one of those trucks jealous and depressed that they won't find one that clean and well setup.

    search and read up on 1ton coil swaps for the f150 stuff. bolt in mod and lifts the front and min sag when plow up. then as most fords are weak in the rear springs go get some beefy spring packs and mabye a lift block to leval it out.

    the fisher speedcaster plow setup on that f150 is a TANK of a setup. and in my opinion it would be Sacrilege to paint that plow red. just give it a fresh coat or 2 of rustoleum safty yellow / sunburst yellow. cheep and just a tad brighter than fisher yellow.

    I like the old Fisher Speed Cast plows. They are a very rugged plow. You should like it.

    You guys think stock 79 Bronco coil springs would stiffen her up any to help her handle the plow any better? I got a set kickin around, figured it might be worth the try

    prob same spring rate as the f150 coils in there now.

    need big gvw and heavy motor option to get the spring rate up there.
