    If I puchase a 6.5 ft Meyers plow, will I be able to swap blades and put a 7 or 7.5 blade on the plow frame?

    Doubtful, the 2meter ad older 6 1/2 plows have narrower a-frames. A 2meter plow is a much smaller plow, unless you are going to put it on a small truck which won't take any bigger, put on a larger plow....Chuck

    You mean swap mold boards for a bigger one or hang a bigger plow on the truck?

    I dont have the exact info on the plow. It's a newer model though. The moldboard has the Meyers Max sticker on it. If I get it, its because its the closest thing that will fit on my truck...mounting bracket wise. Therefore I was trying to figure out if I could put a larger moldboard on the the plow frame.

    Need a model number to be sure. Sounds like a 2meter poly. What truck are you putting it on...Chuck

    E-mail meyer meyer about mount. I would not put any bigger Meyer plow on an Explorer. Price sounds OK if in good condition...Chuck

    Mdirrigation, Pro-Wings state that they won't fit a Meyer 2-Meter.
    Plow is not tall enough...Chuck

    I don't think the Bronco II mount will work on that year Explorer. The 89-90 Bronco II has the same nose as a 91-94 Explorer but I don't think the chassis is the same.

    I'm going to check out a used meyers 7.5. I think I can find a factory mount for my truck for under 375. If the plow is in decent shape, i'll pick it up, order the mount and save 300 bucks. thanks for all the input.

    Only listing I can find is for Bronco II, and it is a 2-Meter which will not match up to a 7.5. Order your mount before you buy plow. Used plow are coming down in price, It's end of season...Chuck
