    Okay so I'm buying my first plow. I'm new to all this so bear with me. I currently own a 1997 ford f150 XLT. I am planning on purchasing the plow off of this:


    It looks to be in decent shape when I saw it in person, not much rust etc. He is giving me the entire setup (blade, lights, harness, wiring, joystick, push plates, etc) for 700 dollars. My question is, its on an 1990 f450. Is it gonna fit my truck? Do I need new push plates? I don't know much about it other then it's a fisher plow. Based on what I've seen 700 bucks is cheap. What am I in for after buying it?

    You would need new mounting. Might need to see if you can find it first before you buy it.
    And I'm ASSUMING it's an 87'6 which is way time heavy for your truck.
