    I have a 1988 F250 with a Fisher 8' plow on it. I bought them new and they have done me very well. Truck is getting rough. The rust is bad. I am wondering what other years that mount would fit. It looks like 80-91. Probably F250 or F350. I have the one ton (F350) axles. Thinking of finding an older truck from the south that is not as rusty, but looking to find what year range.

    I tried Fisher and they frankly don't care. I don't plow a lot so I am not wanting to buy a new plow or truck.

    you are correct. 80-91 f250 and f350. bronco/f150 has different frame. and 92-96 is all together different.

    Thanks, At least i know I am on the right track. I am finding some of the old trucks. Sure not as common as they used to be. Not in a hurry, this truck should make it through this winter, but she has seen its days. Who would ever think the cast iron exhaust manifolds would rust out.
