Has anybody used a full size ford bronco plowing snow, how did you find it , any problems, or opinions on it.
My truck has a 5.0 , auto with od and push button 4x4 . I have replaced the auto hubs with Warn manual hubs. I haven't bought a plow yet any suggestions which brand to go with. Thanks... Skeloo

Full size Bronco is a great plowing machine (at least the older ones were).

As for plow - which ever dealer near you that has the best reputation for service and parts is the one to use.

I have a 78 Bronco I just use for back-up. The reason I liked it was the turning radius. I do smaller lots and you can turn them around on a dime because of the short wheelbase. Never had to much mech. trouble either.

I had a 72, a 73, a 75, a 77, and a 79 and they were all great plowing trucks. I would love to have any one of them back.

I have a 84 power wagon with a 7 and a half foot meyer just about the same as a bronco. this is a great plow truck for small up to medium lots.turns great i took the salter of kind of a pain to carry salt and its hard on the truck to push large heavy amounts of snow(over 12in)i will have a short bronco style plowing for me from now on

I want to thank everyone who responded to my thread.I'm going to plow with my Bronco after all. I think i will go with a western plow,I was told a Fisher would be to heavy for my Bronco. Thanks again"

I know this wasnt brought up before, but you have a very light front axel on that bronco. You will definately need some sort of front load boosters or air bags. Also a 7' or 7.5 at the most would be able to be installed. If you go western do not get the pro plow, that will be to much weight. A snow way would be a much better choice.

i agree about the push button 4wd. i had that on my 96 eddie bauer. i never plowed with it and it stopped working after about three years, i would never get another car with that push button garbage again. my cousin has the same problem with his expedition too..

Around here all I see is 7.5 rd fishers on the bronco,s and there is even 2 bronco's with diamonds on them.So I see no harm in a 7.5 western pro. I do agree,load boosters is a must for them.

That may be true on the older broncos, but by the mid 90's they really lightened the front ends. Seeing that he has the push button 4 wd, he must be in the mid 90's for a mdel year, so I would have serious concerns with the front end, seeing as how it will have about 6-10 yrs of driving on it by now.
