    Anyone know if a western plow setup from a 90 f250 will fit an 88 f350 mason dump without changing push plates, basically bolt on??:

    It should. As far as I know the body and frame are still the same in those years.

    I'm just hoping your 88 isn't the 7.3 idi diesel.

    Your still a little short of my 496. :salute::laughing:

    Not trying to rain on your parade either, but I've heard both the good and the super downright ugly of a Jasper motor.

    The 7.3 is a dinosaur of a diesel. Though they were fairly reliable, they have their own host of problems and are expensive to fix for what it was.

    My old 87 ford had a 6.9 (same block as the 7.3 idi, the 7.3 was just bored bigger). I ended up spinning some bearings and bending push rods a couple of seasons ago. Luckily the winter was right at the end.

    Still should be the same I do believe. I think the chang-over year was 86-87. They changed the body style and the frame as far as I know.

    87 to the 90's should all still be the same until the major body change happened. The only difference between F-150.250,350 was simple changes such as different front axles, different drivetrains, suspension and frame gussets and brackets to change the GVWR.

    But, for some reason in the 90's I think there were some minor frame changes in the front before the next major body change.
