    Hello every one. I am a new guy to this site so please bear with me if I do something wrong.
    My question is, I have a 94 F150 4X4 with a 8 foot unimount on it. The truck lost the engine and I want to transfer the plow to one of my other trucks, that truck is a 1994 full size bronco 4X4. Now can any one tell me if the mounts will fit? Seems to me I heard the frame is the same for both trucks but none of the people I contacted can tell me so im turning to all you good people for help.

    Thank you all in advance.

    Go to the Western site and look up vehicle listings.

    I would park the Bronco next to the f150 and get a big pc of cardboard and lay on the ground and look maybe using a tape to measure things out. Seems to me the turning radius is tighter on a Bronco but am not sure if that has to do with frames or steering components.

    I did go to the Western site as well as other plow manufactures but no one lists the Bronco, I also looked closely (as best I could) at both and though they seem to be the same its difficult to tell with the brackets in the way. I have to make a decision soon either swap the plow or a replacement engine in the truck.
    Any one know any one in a wreaking yard? Maybe they could tell us..... I called LKQ in my area but the guy really wasn't interested in helping me.
    I also went to an installer here, he also said the plow companies don't list the Bronco.
    Oh why wasn't I born rich instead of so handsome and lovable ..... LOL

    Many of us here fight with that very issue everyday. Well...most of us. :D

    You're good to go. F150 and Bronco's share the same front frame sections.
