    It doesn't say 4x4 anywhere that I could tell. At least this one has good potential to be able to push fairly well even being only 2wd. He could add enough ballast to this one to be productive unlike a 2wd 1/2ton.

    Anybody who would buy a truck this size, no 4x4, with a dump bed on it, and with a gas motor in it should have their head checked out. This is a worthless truck! And I love Fords! Looks like the "Lawn Wizard" needs to think about it some more. Same goes for the dealer or company who thought this truck was a good idea.

    Just a FYI that truck is a F550 and yes it is only 2wd. That bed full of salt will push a 10' blade no problem with only 2wd.

    F450 or F550, that means it should come standard with a 6.4 Powerstroke under the hood. Also, FYI I used to plow with a F550 2wd and it sucked in any kind of deep snow, sure if all you're going to plow is 2"-4" all of the time it might work out but anymore than that and you just waste your time.
    How does the dealer expect to sell this truck? They can't even list any of the correct info on it, hell it might be a 4x4 for all we know! (It's not 4x4, if ti was there would be a switch just to the left of the climate controls.)

    As for no 4x4 the truck is in texas not exactly the snow capital of the country.

    i am pretty sure they won't have a hard time selling this truck....i bet there are tons of work trucks just liek this one on the roads...

    4x4 is just an option for a particular kind of work you're using the truck for....there are lots of jobs that truck can do that don;t ever need 4x4

    no no, look at the tail pipe only one, 6.4 have 2 put together, you can get a V-10 for a 4 or 550

    actually no they dont come standard with a stroker, V-10 is also available and this truck has the V10. another difference that rules out the 350 as the option are the gvwr and the wheel size if you look at the door jamb tag. and its not a 4x4, there no manual hubs on the front and there is no electric shifter on the dash or lever on the floor. i think that rig will plow snow just fine in 2wd as long as the lot was somewhat flat, bnc has a video that proves it. i know you know it all though, just trying to add to your knowledge.
