    I have a full size 1996 Eddie Bauer Bronco with a 351 engine, quad shocks and 4wd. None of the big plow makers recommend an application for this vehicle. I live in upstate New York and will be plowing for myself only, about 300 ft of stone driveway. Anyone have a recommendation for a plow that will be both durable and practical for my use. Thanks

    Throw any 7.5 footer on it. Maybe an 8, but at least a 7.5. I plow with a 4 door Tahoe with no problems, so your solid front axle Ford will be great! Good for tight places too! :cool:

    Thanks PlowVA. Is it possible to get a dealer to install a name brand plow, Western, Meyers etc. if they don't have a specific application listed for it or are there liability issues with that? Every dealer I have gone to in the Albany, NY area has left it at "We have no listed application for that vehicle"

    Is there anything special about the 96 model year? I have seen tons of pics of full-size Broncos with plows on them. Do a forum search for Bronco and you'll see.

    Does it have the solid front axle?

    The Bronco has the IFS front end not a solid axel. Use the 1996 F150 set up from what ever plow maker you want that is what will fit your Bronco. The frames are the same. I would not go any bigger then a 7.5
