    Is a BOSS 7'6" super duty plow to much for a 05 F-150 extended cab with a 4.6 V8? Thanks for any help.:waving: :waving:

    If you go to the Boss website they will be able to match a plow to your truck. My guess is if its a steel unit, it probably is. You may have to go with a poly blade.

    I'm pretty sure the poly is heavier than the steel because of the extra bracing needed.

    blade

    Yes it is the steel blade. Just want to make sure it is not to much for my truck. I found one used for a good price. Thanks for any input.:waving:

    I am planning on hanging a 8ft2in boss steel v off my chevy halfton so I wouldn't worry to much about the straight blade, but I don't know much about fords either.

    Boss makes a sport duty 7'6'' plow that is poly. I am not sure what kind of plowing you are doing but if it is just your drive and say 5 others that would be fine. I wouldn't think that, that plow you are looking at would be to heavy if you added timberns. I had a 7'6'' super duty on my 91 chevy half ton short box reg cab. It squated like a pita but it work and I never had a problem. I have sence upgraded to a three quarter ton hd gmc with a vee on it.
