F-350 Crew Cab for plowing???????

    I own a 2002 F-350 Crew Cab 4x4 PSD 8' bed. I bought the truck with the intent to plow snow and to use as a back-up salter. This particular truck gives me a "swiss army knife" truck - it meets all of my versatility needs. Back up plow truck, salter, sidewalk truck, bobcat tower, etc..
    I realize it is a long truck, but for the past years I've used standard cab diesel plow trucks with 8.5 plow in front and Daniels 8' pull plow in back - but no salter, they have been outstanding plow trucks - I can do any plow site with this truck combination. I've learned about snowman back plows that will accept a Western pro-flow 1 with their pull plow................. what do you think?

    I wonder if the snowman pull plow will work with a 8' - "V" box salter?

    Any one out there plowing with a full size Crew Cab pick up?

    There goes the Ford warranty??????????/

    Chicago, you might be interested to know that the same front axle on your truck is used on the F-550, albeit with larger brakes, wheels & tires, plus lower gears. The casting numbers on the other parts are identical!

    Thanks Pelican for the info!

    I'm still amazed by the type of work this truck can accomplish......Ford F-350 - Diesel....MY TRUCK OF CHOICE!

    Tillerman, I see you made it! Welcome to Plowsite!:drinkup:

    There's another thread in this section about crew cabs you can probably add insight to.
