    Here is what it said
    No plow applications are recommended for your selected vehicle. Must be a reason for that

    F350 Chassis must be to much for the Boss plows or Boss plows are to much for my Ford
    Then I punch Chevy same spec as my Ford and it pop up all kinds of plows for a chevy

    Federal regulations. It'll handle whatever you want to put on it. Just might not be "legal"

    Trucks seem to be getting to heavy. Soon you'll need a CDL

    I'll tell you exactly what it is - I called and said the same thing...it's because of the weight of the diesel engine verses a gasser - much heavier - then you throw on about 900 pounds or so, and it goes over the manufacturer recommendations.

    Now everyone else does it...so....

    Now- is it true that there is no difference in the FRONT END suspension, support, etc between the 3/4 ton and 1 ton and the big difference is in there rear end - I am asking as that is what I have been told ---- is that true???? Is there a difference in say like a 2002 and a post-2012 truck (meaning - in what I said above?)

    But again - the above is what I was god directly from BOSS.

    250 has a lighter front end. Springs being the issue.
    But ball joints and tie rods and brakes are usually all the same

    If so, what the hell does it take to make it "spec out" to handle a larger plow?

    If you search basher he explained it recently. It has to do with the wheel base as well

    I know its silly. Then you get the public texting or grandmas who can't see over the steering wheel or through her caderacts.
