    Ok I know that a F150 isn't the best truck to use to plow, but its what I have its paid off and the truck would be used to do drive ways and small comerical lots... Our big trucks are used for the big stuff. Now the truck isn't going to be used this year but next year when I get out of college and start to plow more in the winter. What I want to know is what blade would you recomend for this truck... I also am not looking to spend a arm and a leg on a plow. I like fishers and thats what we have on our trucks now and i got a quote on the light duty or SD what erver they call it for 4200 installed. I was looking at the boss and blizzard plows also I was just wondering what you guys like best and what is the best plow for the truck.... also if i forgot to mention the truck is a 2004 F150 Heritage 97-03 body style with a 4.6L

    Thanks for the info guys. I heard that the snow ways are good when you get the down pressure option with them, but that will make it a little expesive for me. VBR whats the weight of that western that you have?

    I run a Sno-Way 71/2' on an F-150 and it works awesome. DP is well worth it.

    Get the lightest plow that will fit your needs. As you know it's just a f150 and the newer ones don't hold up well to the rigors of plowing..
