    I just got a 1999 F-250 Regular cab, V10 as a work truck. I was wondering if a 9'2 boss power v would be too big because i can get one for a pretty good deal. Any help would be appreciated.

    I never heard of it being too big! Just go for it it'll be fine you have the truck for it.

    It will work just fine. Be careful on drive-thru windows and going down the road it will be wider then the truck but your truck will push it fine. I just bought the same plow and will be putting it on an 89 F-250as soon as I can find a mount. New mounts are very very spendy. I have a 2000 Dodge mount if anyone is looking or I may just modify it to fit the Ford.

    I had that same plow on a 99 F250 and loved it. It's now on a 2000 F350 (salt truck) and I love it.

    Hey Hydro, is that your undercarage on E bay?

    Did your truck have a front axle heavier than 4000 lb?

    Bossman.... not mine. I may just try to modify mine to fit the Ford if I can't find one to trade for. Just hate $500 plus dollars for a new mount.

    Would timbrens be a better choice than the spring helpers?
