    I found an older MM1 Fisher plow which the owner thinks is an RD (from '95) which would make it a tad on the heavy side (700 lbs) for a F150.

    I have heard some people do go ahead and put them on the F150 without problems - especially with the timbrens on the front. So - I am considering buying it, but wanted to see if anyone else has tried a plow that heavy for the F150.

    I am not doing more than a couple driveways- mine and some friends. No commercial. F150 is a 2005 King Ranch.

    Personally I wouldn't want to put that much weight on the front of a super crew.

    Eric - how far away are your friends? If they are just around the corner, you should be OK. Just keep your speed down when traveling with the plow. Obviously the LD/SD would be preferable, but as you now know, they are tough to find at a reasonable price. I will say this, generally the MM2 is easier to mount up than the MM1. Are you a mechanical kind of guy? Where will you be keeping the plow?

    Are there any other brands popular in your area you might consider?

    Thanks for the feedback guys.

    2COR - friends are as far as 10 miles away - i don't HAVE to plow them - but would like the option to have some mobility if needed in a jam. Noted on the difficulty mounting the MM1 over MM2 - but for the savings, I think I can handle the extra difficulty. Will be keeping the plow at my house - the primary plow site for me....so literally would attach the plow, drive down my driveway and back up and remove the plow 95% of the time - but there is always that other 5% where it would be NICE to get around with the plow......

    I would consider other brands - but fisher seems to be the most popular around here....and the best value.

    ive got a 7'6" mm2 on my 99 supercab and it handles it great, torsion bars are maxed and its in 285/75 nitto terra grapplers, I got timbrens, just havent installed them yet....theyre going in when i have it up on the lift to do the add a leaf and the locker. I'd reccommend timbrens just to make it a little easier on the suspension itself.
