I know I am stepping into a tight spot here, but I really would like to plow in a truck cab this winter rather than outside, backwards on my farm tractor! I think you all know why..... I have a 97 F250 xlt road worthy "farm" truck. I found a 95 3/4 ton (F150?) with a plow <$1000. The big question is will the plates fit my truck.... Anyone?
I also have the typical rust under the rocker panels. Any idea how much I am looking at to have cut out and welded in? Ball park is fine.. Tips, tricks, buy new, etc.

As far as I know the frames are the same. Safest bet would be find out make and model of the plow and call a dealer.
The rockers I would estimate $500 at least if not closer to $700.
You mentioned you live in grand isle so you can become a member of the Vermont chapter. All you need to do is request membership. We do a monthly BS thread for fun and to meet members of other states. December is located here.
'97 is the year they used the new F150 style on the light duty F250's. I know the light duty F250's in 97 have 7 jugs. If you have HD 250 (same body style as the 92-96 F150 through F350) than the 95 3/4 ton (3/4ton is a F250) than you should be fine to swap everything over. Are the body style's the same? That is a good tell.
