You'll also need a 7'6", the 6'8" is not wide enough. Trust me, I'm strongly considering wings since there are plenty of times when my 7'6" is barely enough. Don't know if you're looking to go new or used, but new is worth the investment if you want a correct and reliable piece of equipment. Check out the Western or Fisher HTS, or SnoWay 26. These all work very well on the Titans.

6'8" is way to small for a full size truck. I would sugest either a 7.5' Fisher HT or 7.5' Boss Sport Duty for a Titan.

I'm putting a 7 ft Boss sport duty on my 04 Titan. Should I go for the 7'6" instead? Does 6" make a big difference.

Absolutly go for the 7.5. I just pushed over a foot of snow with my titan. I ran it on a private road we do and I'm trying to. See if I can get wings fabbed to push 8.5. !ottom line is 7 is just way to small for any full size truck. Take it from someone who puts out eleven trucks in a storm u will not be sorry. With a 7.5 as a minumum for that wheel base. If u have any questions about the truck just let me kno

Yes it will be the same I did a lot of research on the vehicle and I ultimatly chose a western hts due to. Westerns lower plow recievers being removable. And the western dealer being a friend pricing is all the same between 4000 to 4400. For western or boss depending on the dealers markup but I was very pleased with boss if the closest dealer was not 30 min away I would have liked to try one.

The front end will scape buy ten. 50 lbs bags of salt for behind the rear axle. Its not the it weighs it down so much its that a titan just sits low up front

A 7' plow won't clear the tires. Get the 7.5'.

Thanks for the help. I have a cap with plenty of weight in back. With a 7'6" only 50 lbs heavier than the 7', do you think I can avoid any lifts for the front end.

I think you will be all set with out any lifts or leveling kits. You could put timbrens in but, you probly won't need them.

I think Timbrens are a must. Just order a set. Has anyone else used just Timberns, not lifts, for 1/2 ton trucks?
