    Is anyone interested in or know anyone that would install a plow? I have a 2000 F250 and just purchased a brand new plow. The plow is the Western 8'6 MVP Plus. It includes mount, wiring, light, plow, the whole works install. I need prices and locations. In all honesty, I could do it myself, I just don't want to take the time to do such tedious work. So if you're over priced or charge more than places such as anderson rental, no need to inquire.

    I bought from a dealer, but Western doesn't recommend the 8'6 on an F250, so the dealer I purchased from won't install. They only recommend the 7'6. There's a 53lb difference in the plows, so I decided to do the load and go option. Not to mention the dealer I bought from wanted $720 to install which is outrageous.

    Thats dumb but if I had do for someone else it be that high
    Cant belive they say 8.6 to heavy for a 2000 F250 they built better then these new ones are
    7.6 be to small in V wouldnt plow the tracks out
    My 9.6 is on a F350
    I own a F250 So front end is made the same as my F350 just different leaf springs

    I'm pretty sure the blade is already together from what I was shown when I bought it. They didn't have the mount in stock so they ordered it and I will pick everything up tomorrow. So I won't be sure exactly what I'm getting until tomorrow.

    I say its on a pallet thats how its ship to dealers and that Install fee will include putting together and mounting on the truck

    If you was closer to me I would mount it to the truck for 1/3 of there price but if its on the pallet
    It will be same or close to the price they want
