    HEARD OF NUMEROUS PROBLEMS....ALL THE SAME PROBLEM OF BENT TRUCK FRAMES. I KNOW OF 4 OCCAISIONS OF THE TRUCK FRAMES BENDING UNDER THE PRESSURE OF HITTING EITHER SNOWBANKS AND OR CURBS, ICE, ETC. IT HAPPENS UNDER THE CAB JUST WHERE THE PLOW FRAME MOUNTS TO THE TRUCK FRAME.

    JUST MY TWO CENTS.

    What dealer are you thinking of using? Also, on your F-350, what year? fuel type? tranny type? The auto tranny's on the I believe `98> turbo diesels have had a lot of trouble. So if that is your problem, you are not alone. Check into the newer trucks. As for the Mitsubishi's I have heard good things and bad. Been plowing in one. It doesn't do so good in the snow if you dont have a loaded sander, and 4x4 if you are doing places with slight hills. Also, these guys are right, the cab on these trucks is extremely weak. If you hit something with the cab you are gonna do a lot of damage to the truck.
