    OK, so I have the choice of 2 plows right now.

    1. 5 year old Unimount with everything I need to put it on my truck and use it, but it is 7.5'. $1400, but I would have to drive an hour and a half to get it.

    2. 1988 (almost 20 year old) Unimount with everything to put it on my truck and use it. It is an 8'. $800 obo.

    Which would be my best bet? It will be on my 1991 F250.

    Thanks.

    What ever you do get at least an 8ft+ plow for your full size truck.
    A plow that is any narrower will not clear a path wide enough for your truck.
    You will be driving over the snow packing in down if you have to turn at all while you are windrowing.
