    I found a Dodge 1989 fisher plow with wings for $1500.Thats all I know at this point.I would"nt mind getting a back up.However,I do'nt want a money pit either.Sign said it runs great.I am considering this only as a back up.Otherwise, I would probably put this money towards a new plow set up on my Dodge 98, which has Myer 7.5 which I have been having some difficulties with.Anyone using Dodge 89 who could let me know what to be looking for.I don'nt know miles but will find out more when I call owner.Dave

    Just some basics as I am buying an '87 Ram now. Look at the floorboards, power steering, heavy rust on the frame, and especially electrical problems. That is all that I have to offer as of now. I'll be back tho!

    realistically, look at EVERYTHING. You're looking at an OLD plow truck. Rust and wear can and will be a concern everywhere.

    Justme- is right. Make sure you check everything on the truck including floorpans, the bed, the frame. It has had a plow on it for almost 20 years so it has definetly been used. Post up some pics of it if you can.
