    I wouldnt worry about it. I have the same f-250 gas with a proplus plow, tornado 1.5 salter, HID headlights, rear worklights, etc. and run everything off original stock alternator and a 850 cold cranking amp motorcraft battery. No need to upgrade

    I believe the plow pkg either comes with dual alternators or on heavy duty alternator, you'll be fine!

    No, you already got these items with the plow prep pack.

    You have dual batteries though? Check what your front GAWR is. That should tell for sure if you got the plow prep or not. If you are absolutely certain you do have it, then you should have that fan clutch. Have you had a plow on it before?

    Just throw a plow on it and wait for the alt to go!

    No. Just springs. You are looking for C code 6k rated springs. You have a Dana 60 axle in the front. Just get the springs, and your good as gold. In fact, there was another gentleman in the Ford subforum in the same predicament as you. I would read that thread as well.
