    Finally got a deal worked out now! My '76 Dodge M880 "Olly" is getting a plow now after plenty of waiting. Oh well at least i've had time to drive her enough to get some bugs worked out.

    Got a 7.5' Meyer with electric E47 pump and dual toggle switch controller. I don't have the plow home yet hope to get it this week maybe even today, 3 hrs away nice little road trip :salute: :rolleyes:

    She's ready and waitin! I got to play in my buddy's plowtrucks during that huge 24" storm we got right before Christmas, I can't wait to get my own plow!!! I have a couple snowblowers and a garden tractor with front/rear blades but nothing like a truck! LOL. I've got a dozen or so driveways of my own plus my buddy has a ton of residentials to subcontract to me (has a townhome/condo complex of 39 identical homes to do plus another 20 residentials) also he has lots of parking lots he said he'd sub some stuff to me, and i've had others wanting me to sub for them as well. Woo-hoo :waving: :drinkup:

    Thanks. Me too, plus they were dirt cheap with good Daytona Radial Stags, 235x85x16's. :) they work good in the snow. I popped out the dent in the passenger door, adjusted the hood latch so its flush with the fenders, and the bumper will most likely come off for the plow mount... this summer when it warms up i'll shoot her with some paint. This truck has a NP203 full time 4x4 transfer case, with a differential locker in it, don't have to get out and turn hubs to lock it in :nod: it had sit a while before I got it, and when i started to drive it some things went out on me but now i think i got the bugs worked out, and its a great strong truck... its a tank, can't wait to plow with it :cool:

    Yep...at least as far as I know they do. I'm sure the right person could properly adapt it, or just get and use the Dodge frame mounts.

    Congrats on getting that plow though!
    You DID lube those hubs, didn't ya?

    When you get a few extra $$$, I would recommend a trans temp guage and a trans cooler, if ya don't already have 'em on there. You will love plowing with this era Dodge truck. :)

    My 78 Ramcharger was the best plow truck I ever owned, you'll have a good time running that old Dodge ...
