Anyone done it or seen done? I’m wondering if the brackets would interfere.
I haven't but I'd think that if you used either coil springs or coilovers. That it wouldn't interfere. Leaf springs the brackets would definitely be an issue I'm thinking.
Coilsovers won’t be in this trucks future, no way I would spend that kind of time or effort lol.
This thing has some minor-ish suspension damage on the right side .
Frame is square , but the a-arm mounts are bent . Was thinking of doing an low height SAS with a Ford 60 . I have everything except the leaf springs .
I may just swap in a good frame and keep it IFS
Probably cheapest to just stay IFS then.
I don't think they would. I can take pictures of my buddies plow mount on a GMT 400 style truck
So, I think have a line on a 05’ super duty front end
That will solve the plow mount issues , just a bit more Fab to make it happen.
x2 if you do leaf spring sas kit and want a stock plow mount setup to bolt on .
fisher takes the front frame horn's area were a sas kit would go . http://library.fisherplows.com/fisherplows/pdffiles/6452.09_011509.pdf
western uni-mount same area used . http://library.westernplows.com/westernplows/pdffiles/13681_103103.pdf
western ultra mount newest same area used . http://library.westernplows.com/westernplows/pdffiles/67942.03_121514.pdf
Yeah I have an ultramount 2 so I gave up on leafs .
I bought a lightly used 9-6’’ MVP 3 Western that came off a wrecked 2000 crew cab
v-plows HATE taller trucks . the A-frame needs to sit flat in relation to the ground . there is a setup directions list on how to set them . otherwise they will not scrape 100% of the width when in V or scoop .
so if you plan a lift and tires also plan fabing some plow mount lowering brackets .
Yep, not my first v-plow Smokey has 8-6’’ mvp 3 and it’s on 35’ with 4’ lift I fabbed up the brackets to drop it down 6’’ plus I still have the 2-3’’adjustment in the mount in case I go to 37’’ hummers when my bfg’s wear out.
I’m hoping to keep the overall lift on the dually in the 3-4’’ range i’m Gonna run 255-85-16 Toyo mt’s on it
It can be done. Local guy built one with ORU kit and dunno bout plow mounts...
Well it would be nice if I could do it with leafs , much cheaper as I have every thing except a set of springs I have some stock square body k30 springs but I’d prefer to have some 2.5” Tuff Country HDs
I don’t really want to spend a lot of money on this thing at this point , the truck is really nice but I’m just not feeling it . If it was single wheel and a 6.5 I’d probably be much more excited.
My truck came with plow mounts on it. I don't know what brand they were but they bolted up to the bottom of the frame horns. The same exact place as my SAS spring hangers.
Yep I'd do that
Yep, I've thought many times about going to a coil front and radius arm set up.
