    I'm hoping someone knows, or knows where I can look up what mount I need for a 1986 Ford F250 4WD. The parts I have now came off from a working plow that was on a 1987 Chevy 2500, I sold the truck, and took off all of the plow parts. What other parts do I need to make this conversion? I'm new to the forum so pointing me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank You

    if you have fabrication skills, you can make the chevy frame fit, i have done it before.
    to do it properly, you would have to get a frame for your body style truck.

    Thanks TJTrans, I was thinking I could have this done as I know very little about fabrication. You mention I need to get the frame for my truck body style? Are you refering to the fabrication of the part or the Meyer frame part?

    no, get the proper frame if you are dumber than a box of rocks.:laughing:

    if you have fabrication skills, it is really nothing more than cutting off and adding some brackets, making some drop brackets, and maybe adding a few bolt holes here and there.
    fabing a frame to fit an off brand truck add about 3-4 hours to the install time.
    as in makes a 4 hour job an 8 hour job.


    i usually spend more time looking for the metal to make the parts than i do making said parts.
