    i've always plowed with half ton trucks, my truck now is a 99 f150 xtra cab, (pic in my sig.) its got a 5.4 and im running 285/75/16 tires with the torsion bars cranked and a set of timbrens. You can hardly tell my 7'6" MM2 is there, plenty f power, and with the suspension set up the way it is, it hardly squats, occasionally i get a little tire rub on the factory splash gaurds, but nothing serious, only on tight turns with the plow up.

    Any question you have try using the search function first. That way you get a good education and your question may be answered. If not, throw it out we like the hard questions. At the bottom is "Off Topic" you can throw out question on stuff there too. Like computer questions, how do I? Or any Plumbers here? etc.
