    happy turkey day everyone!

    I am wondering if the use of timbren's on my front end will really casue less front end damage. the plow i purchased is a western polly pro plus plow weighing 720 pounds. I also have an 08 F250 that I am going to put a plow on. will the f-150 be able to do the residential side of the business (around 20 driveways) without crapping out on me every month?

    I have a flow 40 but other then that and tires. I pull a landscape trailer all summer and then bust its butt all winter. change the fluids and stuff and it gone threw a set of brakes or 2. But i have plow prep and heavy payload package so. Its a great truck for a half ton

    Hey STX Ford, how do you like your Add A Leaf? I have been thinking about getting it for my F150, but I didn't want to sacrifice ride too much since I am only loaded down for salting in the winter.

    empty on dirt loose gravel you slow down lol... but i find it gave it more of a truck feel then a jacked up car ride.
    It's my 2nd that i do it with, the idea of bottoming out with just a slowblower on back was hideous..
    But i do have to carry weight at times.. 1100lbs or so in this pic... and only 1 inch drop from tire to fender well

    I have a boss 8'2" power-v on my 06 F150 4 door. I installed 3" spacers and timbrens both. Truck handles plow very well after i installed a 2nd battery. She's a rough ride going 55 mph + on the highway however because of the very small amount of play w/ the timbrens with that heavy plow on. I hope she makes it through this winter quietly. (even got a boss dealer to install it!!!)
