    How many miles are on it? Lube oil and filter to start. Fuel filters for sure. Hydro fluid change for the plow. Maybe new coolant and tranny fluid on the truck if it needs it.

    Your post are so informative. Suspension wise i would do nothing, a ford sits pretty well with a plow on it! Change oil in plow and truck, also check the tires on ur truck. :waving:

    Clean and inspect ALL electrical connections. Clean the plow filter. Changing the coolant is a good idea. Make sure it has a good battery.
