    bought this truck to replace my 79 bronco a few months ago for a project and figure'd she needed a plow. so today i finally got one, its just the blade but i got an awesome deal on it, and i dont mind making mounts for it, thats the fun part. so far i junked the bed and got a new one picked out just havent brought it home yet, changed the whole front clip, tuned her up a bit, painted the chassis, and rattle canned her.

    got our first bit of snow a few days ago which motivated me to get a plow.

    Frame look pretty good for a truck of that age! Id drive an older truck for sure, but they just dont last up here..

    They'd do ok but would require yearly tear downs, sand blast, and undercoat. We used to to do that when I plowed up in northern mass. I'm talking about 80's though. With late 70, early 80 model trucks. Much simpler to work on. As soon as the warmer weather came back.. all the trucks came in for a makeover. I know that's not too practical today. This salt is brutal.
