    I THOUGHT THE TRUCK MOUNT WOULD BE A DIRECT BOLT ON BUT I WAS WRONG. THE FRAME ON THE PICK UP IS BOXED AND THE BRONCO IS NOT. DOES ANYONE WANT TO TRADE A SNOWAY LOBO V BLADE FOR A STRAIGHT BLADE PLOW?? I JUST NEED ONE TO FIT MY TRUCK. THE PLOW I HAVE WORKS GREAT I HAVE EVERYTHING FOR IT AS WELL. LET ME KNOW BY CALLING 734-341-2210 THANKS NATHAN. PLOW IS IN SE MICH.:bluebounc

    Should have asked first.......not only are Bronco's different, but so are up to 92 pickups ;). Best of luck on your hunt.

    That thing I have same problem.

    You could make fit.

    They just need trim and shim to fit.

    I did measure

    truck from 1991 front frame should be 41" and after 92 truck is 40"

    You could put shim and 8 grade bolts should hold but keep mind you would need welder to do make fit right and won't loose when try push frozen pile.

    You need to purchase the correct mount not an entire plow. there are considerably more differences then the width.

    The whole front of the frames are different. Something could probably be made to work, but they're very differnt.

    A Lobo is TOO heavy for the front of your F-150 anyway.

    I have not found a mount for your truck I don't have a new one nor a used one at this time. Hydro is correct that is a lot of plow for that truck

    You could try sell that F150 and get F250 or F350 in 1991 or past. That what I would do since you could get cheap used truck in Michigan.

    thank you for looking basher. What things could go wrong with the plow on that truck? I am new to plowing and would like to know some do's and don'ts. Thanks for your help guys. Wilwaukee i will probably sell the plow instead of the truck and buy the right plow for the truck then. Thanks

    You will ruin the front end parts very very quickly. (ball joints, tie rods, springs)
    A 7-71/2' plow would work the best on your truck.
    I would be interested in your plow and may consider trading one of my 71/2' sno-ways to you.
    PM me.
