    This is my set up that I have had for years. I had the pump first on a 1985 ford pick up and purchased this 94 f 250 in 2001. Truck Runs great just needs some paint work. Also I have pictures of my plow attached. I would like to upgrade this set up. I would appreciate if you guys think this set up is still good and if I can repaint and work on this plow and turn it into something that looks new. Or if you think i should just buy a new one because its worthless. I am not sure if a modern plow would work with that pump and connection. Your comments are appreciate. Thanks a lot guys I know you all know more than I do, so I said hey, why not ask the experts.

    If you have the ways & means to do it, I would suggest adding a shock absorber to the plow. Many on here may be too young to ever use a plow w/o a shock, but I can tell you it sucks IMO.

    As for blasting & painting, do a search on this forum as it's been discussed many times.

    Good Luck.

    body shops would work. better if you find someone who does industrial blasting and coating. they would be better equiped to deal with the rust on your plow.

    Older stuff usually holds up better than the new. Keep it and put a little TLC in it and keep on making money.
