    Couple quick thought's / questions.

    Anybody plow with a Ford f150? Feel free to send pics or suggestions on plow options. I'm looking to buy a 99 f150 lariat from a family member, and hopefully by fall put a plow on it. It will be my work truck as long as daily driver...(I'm getting sick of having a car for the summer and a truck for the winter and paying for both) Any positives or negatives about that truck/year would be helpful also.. I've been looking at some of the snow way plows and have been quoted a good price on those, but it's spring and I'm sure they want to sell them cheap just to clear room on the sales floor. I currently drive an 89 Jimmy with a meyer 6.5 plow and the truck took a sh1t on me, so I've got experience plowing, I just want a bigger plow and bigger truck but I dont want to go overboard on either aspect. With gas prices the way they are I dont want to kill my wallet each week.

    Any thoughts/suggestions/ or random stories are appreciated, Thanks.

    I used to plow with an 04 f150. When I had my 2000 f150, I had a hard time finding anyone that would talk to me about a plow for it. I have seen a number of plows on them. Snoway, Curtis, Meyer, Western and even Boss V's. The Snoway and Curtis will be the lightest for the truck, which is what you should look at. The Boss Sport Duty would also be a good plow.

    I just put a new 7.6 LD/sd fisher on my 98 f150 4.6 reg cab long box. I also put in a set of timbrens on the front. Very happy with the set up. And the timbrens are great. They were a little tricky to install but patience pays off. Raise the plow and the front of the truck stays put. No nose dive. As far as mpg, I get about 18 on the hwy.
