    here are some pics, 1988 toyota pickup, new clutch, new brakes, new timing belt, new trailer hitch and wiring, wood and steel bed is clean and well built. A truck this short would be great for doing residentials, I dont have the plow/pump but do have a meyers plow frame. Was going to put a meyers 6.5 on but ended up getting a full size. Truck has only 120k, V6 , 4x4, 5 speed, tight front end and recent alignment, clean almost rust free frame, needs nothing, also has cold A/C for the summer. Asking $2000, located in central CT.

    what plow would the mount fit? I'm looking for a plow setup for my 94 Toy. Also my equipment dealer is looking for a toyota pickup, I will pass this along to him tomorrow.

    The mount is for a meyers 6 or 6.5 foot plow, it will fit 89-95 toyota pickups, and with minimal work could be put on an 86-88.You will also need the meyers e47 electric/hydraulic unit which goes on the frame with 2 bolts, and I believe is completly universal, there are a million of them around. You will also need the wiring and the plow blade/angle cylinder assembly. This stuff is pretty common in the bargainnews and usually well priced. Also the V6 in the toyota pickups has a bad reputation for blowing headgaskets, but if you do some research 88 was the only year without this problem because toyota used an asbestos head gasket.

    I was looking in the bargainnews today and found an 84 setup complete. however you're saying that an 84 setup won't work on a 94? I thought they were all the same from 84-94?

    1984 is a solid front axle, toyota introduced independant front suspension in 1986 which is a completely different setup
