    Is the truck an F-150, and is the crack on the right front side of the frame? I have been told this is a problem on the 150's, not sure why.

    As far as what the plow is worth, I have found you get much better deals if you don't make an offer. Tough sometimes....
    It may be better to offer a low price, and haggle from there. There are a lot of people that just want their old plow "gone" and will settle for much less than it's worth just to be rid of it.

    yr old 7.5' min mount would be in the 1000-1400$ range, if it is in good shape, and all wiring and control box os there.
    If anything is missing, no more than a thousand.
    People call around and ask how much for a new plow then take 500 off and try to sell theirs, but used plows are plentifull, and about 1/2 of the new price is about right.

    Also when pricing make sure truck will fit truck, new framework/wiring harness will cost an extra $ 500.00., The first plow I bought was a used Fisher 8', by used I mean 3x, no paint was even chipped, I paid $ 1300 or $ 1400, I can't recall, but then we retrofitted lower framework, it was a conventional mount so wiring was not as hard.
