    When someone gets a chance, will they give me a rounded figure on what a 8611 cost installed on a 2001 F350? Thanks, Jared

    . Blizzard doesn't recommend the 8611 on anything smaller than the f450 but I have seen a few on the f350s. . :nod:

    Boast I'm not trying to talk you out of a Blizzard plow but that is a hell of a lot of plow up front all the time. Have you thought about a 8, 8.5 or 9' straight blade plus pro wings instead of the 8611?

    i have an 8611 on my f550. its a lot of plow and is perfect for f-450 size trucks and over, it can be used on f-250 and f-350 but i wouldnt. i would use an 8611 lo-pro on your f-350. it is the same weight as the blizzard 810 and same width as the 8611. you can run the lo pro on 3/4 ton and 1 ton truck without any trouble

    Try calling Ferraris custom car and trucks out of Sterling VA. I used to work with the owner some where else and he is a pretty good guy.

    I have a question regarding putting a 8611 on the newer 05 and 06 Fords. Now that the plow prep springs are rated for 6000 lbs on the 250, 350, 450, and 550, then why does it matter what truck you put it on? They all have the same front end springs, carry the same engines and trannies. The only limitation I see would be the front tires on a 250/350, as opposed to a 450/550, so I may have just answered my own question.

    I am pretty sure that the front axles and housings are bigger on the 450 and 550 then the 250 and 350's.

    If I'm not mistaken on the 450 and 550 the brakes are also bigger due to the extra weight the trucks can haul.

    I have an F550 and I can tell you when I raise my 8611 off the ground the truck goes down in the front and you can really feel the weight when your driving and turning. I have the extra-heavy susp pkg in front, witch I beilieve carries 1000pounds more than the 250-350.
    Everything is bigger in the front of an f550 compared to the 350, tires/rims, brakes, susapention bushing, balljoints. Eqaulls less wear and tear.:)

    Boast that sounds like a great combination on that truck. I am running a 9' Boss straight blade with Pro wings on at times and they really ad to the amount on snow you can move with a straight blade.
