    2006 F150 4x4 Crew cab 5.4L and want to put a Fisher plow. 7.5 HT, SD or HD. I'm also going to gave snowex spreader 1575 or 1875.

    No I was meaning like a pallet of salt. Or X amount of bags in the bed while plowing. Alotta extra weight when not needed. But I would look into so type of extra help. Air springs, timbrens, etc..
