    Heres an old western conventional 8 1/2 ft. pro plow with a Mark III cable pump that I restored, built a custom undercarriage for, with headgear that I can easily remove at the end of the season. The A-arm was beat so I made a new one also. It works great.

    I used a set of BOSS push plates to get me down from behind the bumper. They dont cost much and they have the best design. I built everything else. The rear braces are 1/2" plate instead of the normal 5/16. It was an immense amount of work but it finally paid off. 2 bolts, 2 pins, cables and battery wires and the whole headgear comes right off. I removed the fog lights and made a dual receiver type set up. I sure don't see many of these on here, especially mounted to a newer Ford. But it was cheap.....and it works great.

    I will take a few more pics of the mount as soon as I can. I'll be busy today. The only parts I got from Boss are called weldments and its the flat plates that come down alondside the push beam. Its $130 for both sides. $60 for one side and $70 for the other.

    LOL funny you should ask. I have some, but the factory brackets doesnt put em any higher than my stock headlights. I can make taller light brackets, yes. BUT ........ do I need them? I haven't made the final decision on that yet, but with the plow all the way up then lowered slightly I can see fine. I am not sure I need them and would rather not have them if not.

    No extra wiring to worry about that way either. Looks real nice.
