    Funny you should ask that...

    I've been searching the forum for the past couple of hours trying to find advice on the same question.

    I want to put a Boss 7.5 V on my '04 Dodge Ram 1500.

    To all you old timers that may respond:

    • Yes...I am a noobie...
    • And...yes...I have read HOURS AND HOURS using the search function.

    I just put a 7.6 straight blade on my 06 f-150. its a super duty blade (with the boxed in support on the back- like the new super duty XT's are) the weights are close enough, she squats and with no ballast i can get the back to wag like a tail but i should be fine with some weight in the back and maybe timbrens. Ive seen 2 local guys here with v plows on 1/2 tons, just take it easy and drive smooth. Dont let them hate....

    This topic(okay maybe not specifically a Boss on an F150) has been discussed many times on these forums. Plowing with a 1/2 ton truck can be done and works great(I have one), the only downfall is that they will not take the beating over the long-term like a 3/4 or 1 ton truck would. So as long as you aren't plowing large commercial properties and can live with some extra maintenence $$$ you will be fine.

    I have the 2" leveling kit on my 2008 F150 for extra clearance going down the road. You may also want to use timberens or get the plow prep springs for your application.

    Oh yea I also had it on a 05 Dodge ram 1500 quad cab last season and ot droped front about 1 1/2" so I bumped up the T-bars a few turns and w/ 15 +/- 50 lb bags of salt helped to!
