What part do you mean, exactly? This is my first 6.5', but I have another in the works. I would greatly appreciate forewarnings of what to look for.Watch that sport/utility blade carefully. Once the center wears out the blade is junk, there is no metal to weld onto them things, since they are like paper thin...
I picked up a '94 with a bad engine that had the plow on it. It basically swapped onto the '99. Longer bars front to rear were all that were needed. I had my welder make me up another for the '96 I picked up. I can get a price for you if you are interested.Ron, Awesome job on the pull plow! Kind of jealous of that rig. I agree with the comments on the Western. That plow you have is the "Sport Utility" model. Recomended by Western for non commercial use. And when they say that they mean it because you usually see those plows bent badly and or rusted out. The "standard" model 6.5 ft would be much better if you can find one. Where did you find a mount by the way? I have been keeping an eye out for a unimount mount for the 97 blazer I have but never see one.
Thanks Fred. It's amazing what the right guy and right tools can do. The light towers are getting hacked soon. Whoever designed them apparently never drove with them! The light to the left really helps us see addresses:wink.Ron
Awesome job with the pull plow welcome to the club of inavators :wink thats what 90 percent of the fun of working with Jerre and Thomas was on the Eries.
Like everyone has eluded to the front plow needs some help. If you built that pull plow theres no need to replace the western but Beef it up like Walt said your on a misson to tear the center pivot out. Cut those head light towers down for your own sanity, and iam not sure if you really want to see that much light on the left side but maybe turn the light so there going the same way,,,:wink they look like my Blizzard light towers after a storm but i didnt really use the towers with my supers anyway, and my Wrangler with its speedwing runs over head lights and two off the brush gaurd.
I think its a great Resi truck combo and honeslty like my Wrangler would work well in small doctors and dentist office parking lots also.
On the front blade you have the base board to work with just beef up the quad and members before you take it wider pretty sure if you dont going wide without mods then its gonna look like a V . I have a blade Jerre coined the prom queen that 9ft and has western , Diamond, and Winter all in one... welder , steel, anythings poss.
