    I will be buying a snow dogg by the end of October.However i am confused as to which one to get the HD or the MD.I have a 06 f150 5.4L 4x4,some dealers tell me my tuck can handle the HD and some say i have to get the MD.My GVFA is 3750.I would like to have the Hd just because of the condos i do and church lot i plow.Not sure the MD will hold up.Let me know what you think.Thank You

    Your best bet is to check out our plow selector. That's what your dealers should be using.

    Here is your truck (assuming a short bed regular cab)

    The issue is that the HD75 is only designed for use on PLOW PREP 1/2T trucks. On other 1/2T trucks, you need to use the MD75.

    Your application sounds much better suited to a commercial plow (HD75), but your truck will not support it. It will fit, but we can't recommend it due to the fact that it will technically exceed your front axle capacity.
