    Anyone aware of any pending issues/problems with the F-450 chasis cab 4x2 gas engine (v-10) model year 2008??? And what do you gain by having the snow plow prep package on that veh? (ie: alternator, any different battery, suspension etc)?? any input would be great.


    Thanks in advance..

    Can you even get the plow prep package on a 2 wheel drive truck? I think it may be an option on 4x4's only.

    Yep just asked the dealer you can get the plow prep with a 2wd truck.

    Just went to www.ford.com tried to build a 2wd F450 with snowplow prep. The option doesn't even show up unless you change the truck to 4x4. Regardless of what the website says or a sleazy salesman, once you go to order it, the Ford computer has the final say whether or not it is indeed an available option. Good Luck whichever way you go.

    I just tried to build it on the web site and it allowed the snow plow prep package for $85.00, now what you get $85 who know's. F-450 4x2 165"WB with gas engine.
