We have an old 1978 Ford F150 4x4 lifted Flatbed and a Snow-Bear Plow. We use this only to plow our driveway out here in the Iowa Country. I need to replace the winch motor, and believe I read that you can get another thats stronger and also costs less. I dont know the age of this plow I bought the truck 7 years ago and was told the plow was 2-3 years old at that time. Any help appreciated.
