    Does Snowbear make a plow mount for a 2011 f150 Crew cab?

    Will the plow void the ford warranty?

    Thanks

    No plows on the 2011 F150 due to the electric power steering, per Ford. Any plow on a 2011 F150 will void the warranty.

    two salesmen from 2 different dealerships told me that a plow does not void the warranty unless the damage was caused by the plow.
    I don't know who to believe

    A receiver hitch should be able to be put on the front end of the truck. Any extra electrical load on the truck will mess up the power steering and void the warranty. This also means no winch can be put on the truck. Putting a lift on the truck is also considered out of the question. To raise the truck, the electronic power steering has to be disconnected for the work, then reconnected after the lift is put on. Then the system would need to be checked to make sure it does not put too much stress on the steering system. The snow sport might be the only plow that can be put on an F150.

    There's a memo out FROM FORD on this. I'll see if I can find it.

    Q-200 it is posted in a couple other 2011 threads. Ford is protecting themselves from liability issues.That's why the plow companies are not listing them in the fit guides. So you're on your own if you lose control and run over a car or into a house and kill a couple people, they not only informed you the vehicle was not capable they refused to warranty the vehicle if you did, therefore they are not in any way liable.
