    hello.

    I just got a 94 F150 extended cab 6ft bed as a back up plow truck . GVW is around 6250lb . I was told the front axles are weak? Can I put a Meyers 7.5 on as a backup ? Will it be OK???
    Or should I go 6ft ?



    thanks for your replys

    I would say a 7.5 Meyers should be fine. I have plowed with many 1/2 ton trucks for years. Just keep in mind that you are plowing with a 1/2 ton truck and treat it a little gentler and you should be fine. As always make sure the truck is in top mechanical condition before you turn it into a plow truck. If anything is marginal or weak IT WILL BREAK when plowing. A 3/4 or 1 ton is always better though.

    I've got a Meyers 7.5 on my 95 F150, no problem. Just don't use it as a battering ram.
