    I just picked up a 2000 Ford Excursion. Anybody else plowing with one? Here is mine I just had a Boss 8'6 Straight Blade put on.

    I have a 2000 excursion as well that we plow with. It has a 8' western on it and honestly holds the plow and pushes better than my F250/350's (gas or diesel). I usually drive it in the winter as it a more comfortable ride :)

    Excursions are are awesome. If I didn't need a bed to put stuff in, I'd definitely rock one as a plow rig.

    I would think that Excursions would be great as a plow rig, but you would lose cargo space, no? Like you could load more in the back of a F250 or F350 in terms of blowers, salt, other whatnot, etc...

    Had a 2003 Special Service (Police Pkg) Excursion with 7.3l and a Boss 8' Super Duty. When I put the plow on, I had F350 max GVW springs put in it and ran a mild boost flash. Also had Rickson 19.5" wheels on it. Absolute animal plowing! Put 180k miles on it, Sold it to a guy in Canada two years ago. He is still plowing with it. I miss it :-(

    Next time somebody ask if they can put a plow on an extended cab I'm going to slap them.

    It is just that......a plowing beast!! This is the 3rd winter with my plow on the Excursion. Wish you would send some of that snow up here, we are off to a slow start to the season, we only have about an inch on the ground here
