    Welcome to the site. Take some time and look around the site and get acquainted. Look over the FAQ's and learn to use the Search function. If you take some time you will see that the "best plow for me" topic is one that has been covered numerous times. Take a look and get some ideas and then if you still need more info feel free to ask it. Most times you will find a majority of the answers you are looking for were similar to ones others needed.

    But in a nutshell I think the recurring theme is.....Dealer support is a huge factor! You have a nice truck set-up and you can get away with carrying pretty much whatever you like best!

    Enjoy! :waving:

    Go with a 8ft-8.5ft size plow. Any brand will work so go with a dealer that gives good costomer support:)

    I would agree that you would want at least a 8' plow for that truck.Make sure which ever manufacture's plow you choose that your local dealer will provide you with good service.

    I've got a boss 8'2" v plow and love it. Thats all that we run and have never had any problems with them. But i also agree go with the dealer thats closest to you. They are all good plows that you are looking at its just what you prefer and are able to afford. Tom

    we have 3 F-250 PSDs. 1 extended cab, 2 regular cab, all with 8' beds. All have Fisher 8.5' Minute Mount plows. I agree with the idea to find a dealer close by, that had handled the plow you are interested in for a while. I've seen a few "dealers" switch brands several times, then get out of the snow plow business.
