    I have a 7'6" Boss on my 04 F-250 and it is a bit*h trying to plow with it. It is way too small. I had this plow switched over from my 01 Dodge 1500 because it was only 1 year old. I ordered the Boss wings and they are awesome! The wings bring the plow out to right about 9ft. If I were you, looking to buy a new plow, I would buy, bare minimum, 8ft. I would probably get a 8.5 footer. If you look at Boss' plows, there is only 39 pounds difference between the 8 and 8.5. Just my 0.02.:)

    I have a 7'6" Meyer on my 04 F250 and have had no problems. But, I suppose it would be nice to have a bigger blade. I have done big lots and some smaller ones.

    Since I do some driveways, however, I like the versatility.

    I have the 8.5 foot Western Pro Plus on my F350. I don't think I would put anything smaller on!! I still get a little tire splash with the blade angled all the way and going around a bend in the road.
    Here is a link so you can see what my truck looks like with the 8.5 footer!

    I would go with the 8 or 8.5 but no bigger and no smaller. I have 9 footers on a few of my trucks and they're a pain on the road because they're so wide. If you angle them all the way to the side you will hit the slightest inclination , but even if it is fully angled, it's still a bear on the road. Does better plowing, unless you're plowing small roads, or small driveways.
