    Hey all, I know this is my first post, but I swear that I searched first.:D

    So I'm having a bit of a problem finding a plow for my "new" truck. Like the title says, it's a '79 F250 4x4 with a 460, a C-6 auto, and a np205 t-case. It has the common Dana 60/44 combo for the axles.

    So when I searched it looked like both western and meyer make a plow set-up for my truck. The problem is though; neither of their website's list anything for my truck. I guess it could be because it's so old, or maybe they stop manufacturing plows for this truck because they probably aren't in very high demand:jester::jester:

    If anyone know's of a company that still makes, even just the bracket's for this truck it would be great. Thanks for the help!

    Welcome to the site. You may have to search for used mounts. Call any dealers and ask if they have anything used.

    I believe Western goes back to 82 ford 250's for the ultramount. this mount is not too far off from what you have. Only minor fabing should be required. we did the same mount this winter for a 78 250 with a 6.9 diesel.

    There are lots of old Fisher plows out there. An old 8' quik switch would work great for your truck.

    There's a Fisher push plate set on Ebay right now for your truck. I'll try to find it.
