2008 Tundra Fisher 7.6 SD

Just put a leveling kit and a 7.6 SD Fisher plow on my rig. The only thing Im not to sure is that I cant see the plow over the dash even when the plow is up. Im going to have to extend the Antennas on the end or get a bigger plow.

The 7.5' Fisher SD is hard to see when your in a Tundra. With my Dad's Tundra and 7.5' SD I can only see the top of the lights and a little bit of the plow when it's raised. I wish I had a 7.5' HD on it.

Thanks. I know I still see the headgear go up. Just way different than my blizzard plow or my HD plow on my F350.

The leveling kit would be your best bet for the money. Not sure how much height you need or like but the leveling kit still makes it easy loading and unloading the truck an ease. Also you really dont loose MPG's. There are so many kits on ebay. Just get a kit that has a kit for front and rear plus the front diff drop. I got the Ready Lift kit.

Install isnt bad at all. Not sure how mechanically inclined you are but it should take roughly 3-4 hrs on a garage floor. Only thing is that you need to get an alignment after.

Hey guys sold the SD plow and picked up a XBLADE for this year. Here are a couple pics. Let me know what you think. No counter weight. Ill end up putting a couple of sand bags to help out with traction.

Is that an 8' or one of the rare 7.5' X blades?

The Xblade looks great. I wish my Dad had a HD or Xblade on his Tundra. If I ever own a Tundra I'll either put a Fisher 8' HD or a Boss 7.5' V plow on it.

Thanks JTK324. What did you end up putting on your tundra? This time last year you were installing a plow how did you like it?

The truck looks awesome, make sure you put a bunch of weight in the back. Did you ever see spudmans tundra with the X-blade? Look for his posts, he did the billstein 5100 leveling kit and timbrens all around, he also put around 880lbs of ballast on it. Check out his tundra, Spudman, Nice truck though

Thanks man. I actually have no ballast at all and it does just fine. Traction sometimes depending on what im doing but for the most part its fine. Ballast never hurts though.

I hit spudman up before I got the blade and he told me had no issues. If I remember correct he got rid of his truck.
