    Just put heavier rated front springs in. I went all the way up to 9k rated ones in our 05. It still drops maybe an inch. Our new 16 f250 has 5940lb and the xls that we have on it brings the front end down about 2 inches or so. None of this will effect the truck, I just upgraded the other trucks because the other 2 plows we run are 8.6 v blades and the ends were hitting the road while driving over dips in the road.

    Don't worry about it. My 9.5 Fisher XV2 has 200 lbs on your DXT, and it does fine. Your plow is not a problem. Add about 800 lbs back by the tail gate, go plow.

    Tap your moldboards forward a few inches from V to get more ground clearance.

    ^^ agreed, I have a 9.2 dxt on my 2015 f350 and i just have to push my wings up a tap or 2. no harm in upgrading it but it's the kind of thing i would do after i've paid everything i owe and see i have some more spending money and there's nothing else more important that needs to get upgraded

    My guess is 5940lb. ones. If your worried about the ends scraping, like other's said just bump out the plow a bit. If your worried about leveling get heavier springs.

    My 2012 F250 handles my 9.2 DXT with out a problem. I did upgrade to 6K front springs only because I got a set of take off's for $30. I also kick the wings just a bit to gain more ground clearance.
