    I am looking to put a Fisher RD plow on my 03 F-150 w/7700. I have looked at the Timbrens for the front end, however I am not sure that I want to put all of the weight on the frame stop because it looks to be just welded to the frame. Anyone have experience with turning up the torsion bars to distribute the weight. (between timbrens and bars). I know it would add a rough ride but would it cause any damage to the torsion bars with the added winter frost heaves. Keep in mind that I only put 5000-7000 miles on a year.

    I have never cranked the torsion bars on an F-150. But I have cranked them on numerous buddies Chevys some for just looks and others for carrying extra weight of plows or winches. I just turned the bars up a a Chev 1500 crew cab Z71 and on that 3 full turns got about 1 1/4" of extra height.
