    i'm looking at getting a new truck and i really like the newer ford f-150 style (2004 - current) 4 wheel drive...i'm going to be using this truck though for snow removal and chemical apps...i'm not too worried about the back for chemicals but the front end is gonna squat and wear out, do you guys think putting timbrens in would fix the problem? also, i kind of want a brand new v-plow, any suggestions, i'm not trying to spend $7,000, maybe $5,000 tops...

    It sounds like with the work you are planning to do your going to need more truck. I would get a 3/4 ton. That way you can work it and not feel as if it is going to break. With all that weight you plan on putting on your truck your are going to need heavy duty breaks, suspension, hd everything. Just my thoughts.
