    Thanks I have a Sno-Way Dealer in my town just didn't know why Meyers and Western didn't have my truck listed only with a V10 no diesel? I will check out the Sno-Way do you know where they are in pricing?

    I have a 2002 F-350 crew cab short bed and the guys and Fisher told me the same thing. I ended up getting an 8 ft. poly Meyer plow for my truck and haven't had any problems at all. Knock on wood.

    Front axle weight rating...the diesel is a heavy, heavy engine and the companies are covering themselves from liability for putting an extra 900 pounds on the front axle on top of the PSD. Have you tried talking to a dealer directly? They can probably recommend something as lots of people on here plow with diesels.

    Good luck!

    No I haven't checked a dealer yet just the plow websites I wonder if a poly plow like 02 Stroked did would be a better way to go?

    KC2LLW it has to do with the Front axle rating. The fact that you have a diesel right? and a crew cab means you can have less weight on the front of your truck because of the increased weight of those two. Tons of people still plow with them though and do just fine. Unless your talking Sno way I believe all other manufacturers have more weight on there poly plows. Not sure about meyer, but that means youre probably not saving any weight there. From what I read here and the rep I met with over summer the new Sno Way plows are pretty damn good. My 2 cents though.....a 9.2 BOSS VXT would look nice on there!!! :)

    I have the same problem with my truck only worse being a 3/4 ton Boss would put a 8 foot strait blade on but no v. I am running 8 foot Meyers steel and it seems a little heavy. And yes the poly Meyers weights a little more.

    Yes they do. I would recommend putting on a leveling kit also. It gave me more ground clearance while driving around with the plow on.

    Wow I would have thought the poly would be less weight I am looking at a western 8' pro on ebay

    It is because of the extra support required to hold the poly

    I was wondering why it was heavier on most of the websites...now it makes sense.
