Reason Plow Not Permitted on '93 Fullsize Bronco

    Both Ford and Meyers say that a plow cannot be mounted on my 1993 FS Bronco.

    BTW it has a 351 and dual front shocks.

    IIRC '92 was the last year a plow was allowed.

    I have only looked into Meyers but with Ford not endorsing it a haven't looked further.

    Obviously, I'm not worried about voiding the warranty. But I don't want any damage either.

    I have a Meyer 7.5 ST w/E60 and ?tube mount? that I use on my 1969 International Scout that I would like to use, but I am more concerned about damage to the Bronco.

    BTW- personal use would be appropriate.


    Why can't a plow be mounted?

    Are there any aftermarket modifications that would allow a lplow?

    Are the any manufactures that would be better?

    Is there an idea weight to not exceed?

    That's odd...I have seen them, a friend of mine has a Western 7'6" plow on a 1994 Ford Bronco without any problems!

    Lots of people plow with Broncos including me. They might not make/sell "NEW" plows, but they did make them. I have a complete Meyer ST 7.5 EZ Mount Classic from a 94 Bronco. If you have the plow itself, just look for the mount and light wiring on eBay.

    up grades...

    from what i understand, the bronco and f 150 shortbed are pretty much the same frame set up and all, maybe in wrong..

    but i think the meyers st is rated for the bronco is it not..... my 93 ford f 150 shortbed, 4x4 stick with the low 4x4 gear can push some snow, and with a set of timbrens on, the sag is gone and with balllest in the back she rides and plows great......

    Thanks Dave. I just checked again and the 150 for '93 is allowed but not the Bronco. i don't see the difference. Especially as they offer a plow for a Jeep liberty. Strange? ?

    Bronco Plow? Why Not?


    At the school district I work for we have a 1993 Ford Bronco with a 7.5' Fisher Minute Mount hanging off of it, They have been working this thing for nearly 12 years and had no adverse effect on the truck.

    I can't see why you can't get a Meyer Classic mounting Carton for a 1992-1996 Ford F150 and be done with it! I can tell you everything from the fire wall forward on a Bronco is the same as an F150, so go for it!

    My plow Bronco is actually a 79 with a solid front axle. No mods at all. The ST 7.5 from the 94 I bought to put on my Dodge 2500, but I ended up finding a complete C8 setup that was already on a Dodge for less money than I paid for the ST 7.5 .

    get a mount for a 150 should be the same . we've had 7 broncos with plows never had a problem added front hd springs which really helped alot

    Everyone's confirming what I thought..Bronco is like an F 150, esp. the short bed.

    Maybe it's a little shorter but it can't be much..I'll check just to try to get some logic. And just use some ballast.

    Of course my '93 has an independent front suspension, which I believe started in 1980.

    Cardoc...What springs did you use? What effect do they have on off-plow-season driving?

    On my 94 I had to modify the way the arms come from the bottom of the mount to the truck. The front anti sway bar was in the way of the stock mount. Make the angle a little steeper and weld it up and you will be fine.

    I had a 95 F150 and had to remove the sway bar and it will be alright.

    I think mine has a 2800 lb front axle-I'll check. I know it has dual shocks.

    I read the Meyers mount link and found the sway/stabilizer bar reference, but nothing about the dual shocks.

    How bad is driving affected if I remove the sway/stab. bar?

    Or, It sounds like I could modify a mount or fabricate something to adapt to the truck w/ sway bar intact and plow bracket. I guess as long as I maintained the 10.5" height I'm ok.

    Since Ford excludes a plow starting with 1993, what changed?

    Is it CYA or did actual component(s) change?

    Would anyone be kind enough to post some pic's of their mount?

    92 was a model year change. They redesigned the front frame horns. If you look, the front rails look like an accordian. They did this as a "crumple zone" type thing during collisions.

    I remember seeing the accordian part on mine.

    I assume other front end suspension/frame components are the same?

    As long a I keep the bracket/support out of the accordian part I should be ok?

    I got a brand new unimount and a 3 brand new ultra mounts sitting at work in the boxes. So you could always put a western plow on your bronco. The Midweight is very nice.

    Looking on the Western site I did find a mount they say will fit.

    And thanks for the thought with the mounts igtbg, but I am trying to use my current Meyers plow from my Scout and spare mount if I can. .
