Anyone in here customize or modify their plow instead of buying expensive factory parts? I bought an older Meyer 7.5' that was in an accident when the previous guy rolled his F-250 with the frame on but plow itself detached. He painted it all black for some reason, had punched holes in the plow with rocks, and wore down the wear bar enough on one end to eat away the corner of the plow. Not a bad deal for $800. Here is what I did. 1) Modified the A-frame with angle iron to stiffen and straighten it. Did a little work to the frame mount and bolted it to my truck. 2) Went to the surplus store, bought a roll of 3/4" thick by 6" wide by 7'6" wide stiff rubber, mounted it to the top of the plow to curl the snow. 3) Got a free wear bar from a Colorado DOT county tandem axle dump truck. Wear bar weighs 100 pounds or so alone! It is 3/4" thick and grade 8 steel 4) Touched up the black paint. Now I gotta patch the holes, add a spring and rib here or there to stiffen it up and I am good to go. Lemme know what you have done.
