    Interested in seeing if any of you guys run plows on these trucks? Finding a 550 thats priced right seems impossible and i found an international thats in great shape. Its a 4700 with the 444(7.3). 80k miles and automatic. Just seems like the bumper is so low it would need to be removed. Ideally i would like to put a BOSS on it so i can switch with my 250 for convenience but I'm open to whatever works. I know its impossible to plow with since its 2wd but I'm willing o give it a shot(joking)

    I have a blizzard 8611 on my 2000 4700 low pro. It's an old tru green truck. Enabling and son installed it. With salt in the back it is a tank. Love it. Going to add one to my 99.

    I was just looking. The only ones I can find are on our website. Look under snow plowing and wait for the slide show to go through. Dykstralandscape.com. not the greatest pics bit it proves it can be done.

    And can mods change the title to 90's and 2000's? Totally spaced and forgot how long they made these trucks.

    DLM, which motor do you have in yours? Auto trans ? beautiful truck

    Upfitted quite a few 4700 2wd back in the 90's. Only took pics with 35MM camera back then and don't have any scanned in.

    I had the exact same thing. Only wish I had would be if it was automatic. It was a beautiful truck and great plowing!

    Cool man how do you like it? Any pics? I looked at one with centrals for plow and sander but it was a manual. Really a shame since it also had the 466.

    I personally don't plow with it. I can take some pics when the tk comes back comes back for the day. I can say its a universal western hd mount. Not sure if boss makes one or not

    That would be much appreciated.
    These trucks seem to be kinda rare. I don't understand why there arent more of them taking the place of 550s etc. they are the same size with up to 5 or 6k more payload on a heavier chassis

    Much appreciated.
    I'm glad to hear so much great feedback on these trucks. Seems like 550s have mixed reviews but these 4700 s are knockouts. I would share pics of the truck i want to buy but now I'm scared one of you may snake it lol
