    Going down the highway I looked over and saw a Quigley 4x4 van with a plow on the front of it? I never saw anything like this before! I could not get my phone out quick enough to snap a picture (sorry). Anyone ever see this setup before?

    Yes plus 2wd too.

    I been think of doing that on passenger van for transposition drunk people in winter. They have best turn radius in tight lot.

    I saw one on here awhile back. A new Boss sport duty on the front of an old E350 4x4. It looked pretty awesome!
    Tried to attach a picture of it.

    The Van was a 350 Superduty with a V10 emblem on the side. I bet it could push some snow? It just really looked odd to see! I would love for others to find a picture of a van with a plow on it and post it up. They really do look wierd....

    If you search around on here, that pic came from another thread. He's got pictures of the mount they fabbed up and everything. (And before anyone says it, the plow pictured is a Super duty, not Sport duty, however that plow that actually went with that install was a Sport duty model.

    a guy used to plow a driveway right next to one of mine with a ford van. this year i saw him in F350 and asked what happened to the van. he said the visibility sucked and it was tough to put ballast in it.

    I would think that any full size van would have the same frame and mount points. As a full size truck of the same brand.Might have a problem of coil springs ver's leaf springs. That may create problems with mounts. There was a company in PA that would turn any new full size van into 4X4. If you can use mirrors you should be able plow with it.

    The one in the pic I posted, if recall the post correctly, was something like 3 different mounts welded together to fab up the one for the E350. Guy did a truly professional job, but it definitely took a custom mount.

    I don't think I'd mind plowing with a van. Could set my office up in there, maybe even a little bed for those extended storms! :D

    Probably 20 years ago I saw an E250 or 350 with an 8' Fisher conventional. 4-wheel... probably some kind of conversion and custom mounting with the plow. I have to think backing visibility was terrible, but forward would be the balls.
