    I ordered the 8611PP for my truck and was wondering if this plow was going to be to heavy. My truck is a crew cab with an 8ft bed. I was going to go with the Western Wideout but I thought that the extra foot from the Blizzard would work better. Any input would be great. I am a true Western plow guy but I am taking my chances on this one.

    Ummmm... F350 or F550? Title says 550, but your post makes it sound more like a pickup. If it's a 550 you'll be fine, if it's a 350 pickup you're going to be way over the FAWR.

    dont worry, work. You dont make money with the plow up. Keep it down, working, and making money.

    Pics will be coming soon people. I just have to get all my trucks done. Just bought 2 2011 F550 crew cab dumps, ordered 2 Blizzard 8611 plows, putting 2 3 yd electric salt dog salters in them. Light bars and strobes should be here on Tuesday. Just also bought a 2011 Deere 333d track skid steer. Dont know if im putting on a Kage pusher yet or going to buy another Blizzard 8611.
