    They think 2wd can't do. :dizzy:

    Well I know boss offer plow for Ford F350 2wd.

    You could call Western to ask them what plow would fit it.

    Last year we used a 2003, 3500 2wd with the poor stock tires. I had a 8'6" Arctic plow with the Westen Pro Plus wings on it. We had 24, 2' X 4' patio stones on the back. This truck is a flat deck. We had the worst winter I can remember. That truck plowed every snowfall and one was 18" but we never let the sites get to that. I don't recomend the Arctic Plow because the mounting is quite difficult at times. These trucks will plow better then most people think. I wouldn't use it for driveways but for commercial use they work well.

    I run a Western Unimount MVP v-plow on one of my trucks. 2003 2wd x-cab 2500HD Duramax with a service bed on it. I run about 1,500lbs in the back and she's good to go. Air bags out back and it rides like a 79 Lincoln!! Tires and weight make a big difference. Every classic body (88-00) 3500HD GM was a 2wd (dually of course). Lots of those as plow trucks around here.

    Kind of a different look with the ends of the air dam cut off that far forward. Interesting.

    Lol, it was kindof hanging there on one side, cracked and a lil tore up from the tire rubbing it before the tbars were cranked. I cut it when I put the plow on to be safe with clearance and never replaced it to do it right ; )
