    Has anyone put an 810 on a 2005 F350 with a diesel? I was just curious to opinions about weight since ford made the switch to the coil springs. I've mostly used westerns, but am thinking of trying a Blizzard. Any thoughts on this setup? By the way, it is a super cab with a short box and heaviest springs available. Thanks for your input.

    You should have no problems with the 810, I have put the 8611 on 05 F250, F350. They did perfectly fine. i like to test the limits of Fords anyways. They will hold it fine.

    I appreciate the response. I'm going to check out the dealer next week, and I'll let you know what I do. :waving:

    Just wanted to keep everyone updated, I had the 810 installed on tues. and it looks pretty good. Too bad it has to sit for 2 months before I can (hopefully) use it. :drinkup: I thought about the 8611 LP but I couldn't get myself to do it, with the extra weight and cost I decided to go with the 810.

    I honestly doubt you could have found an 8611 Lopro anyway. If your dealer did not order months ago they are very hard to find. Blizzard only made a limited amount this season.

    No they had the low pro. I just decided not to get it. He said they could only get a few of them though, which i'm sure is part of the reason they were so much more expensive.
