    I have a 1999 f350 2wd 7.3 dually dump. What type of plow would work on this ? Also is there any other method of increasing traction control besides adding weight?

    Thanks

    9' snow plow of your brand choice.

    Chains, studded tires, locker or limited slip. More weight.

    Tire chains, just about any plow will work, super common truck should be very easy to find a plow.
    With chains and weight u will be fine.

    The reason i asked about brand because i spoke with a boss and western and they said they dont make a plow for 1999 ford f350 2wd. So am i using the one for a 4wd or what?

    I've seen lots of Westerns on 2wd dump trucks. Just find the mount. Maybe Boss will require some fabbing....

    Yes, everything else is the same for a 4x4 truck.
     
  9. Different application all together but last year I got a deal on a ex80 snow dogg plow and when I went to mount it to my 92 gmc3500 2wd dually with the mount that supposedly worked for that truck I had to take it and the other mount I got with the plow and cut and paste a new mount. Took about 10 hours of cutting and welding but it worked well. Went to the local landscape yard and paid $10 for a scoop of 3/4 stone in the dump bed (about 1/2 ton). As long as I wasn't plowing up a steep hill it motored through just about any amount of snow. And we had a 24" storm last year. Good luck

    A 4x4 mount will not work as the frontends of fords are different when comparing 2x4 or 4x4. You would need a mount that specifies 2x4.Or as sstephhanuik said get a welder and have fun.

    Go 9 ft plus wings.

    Good SNOW tires and weight.

    I don't use chains, locker, studs etc.

    The frame is the same for a 4x4 and 2x4 idk why the mounts would not work.

    I may be wrong but I was told that they won't bolt up the same because the front axle is different ans interfers with the mount. If 02 powerstroke knows first hand that it will work I would take his advice.
