    Just had the plow put on last thursday (1-20). The truck is kind of long so i went with the 9' vs the 8.5. The truck handles the plow great, i have a leveling kit in the front end and it hardly squats when i lift the plow.

    Some random pics. Picking the plow up, etc.

    Not a problem. I need to get some ballast in the back, i'm sure it will help pushing some bigger piles back. The diesel def. has a lot of torque behind it. I plowed driveways 1 shot pushing a full blade with no problems.

    Looks great. 9' is the way to go! I upgraded from a 7.5' to a 8.5' and it made a world of difference. I plow for my buddy with his 9' and there is just no other way I would want to plow.

    I'm with you 100%. One of my friends has a 9' on an F350 Regular cab and loves it. I figured its really not an issue with weight (14lbs) and it was only $50 more. If i ever get an other 350, whether its a reg cab/long bed or an extended cab/shortbed it will have a 9' on it.

    For weight i'm thinking of getting one of those masonry bags which O&G or other masonry supply places deliver to jobsites which hold about a ton or so of sand. I figure if i get one of those with 6-700lbs in it that would work great right over the rear axle.

    I need to throw some weight in the back, but other than that it pushes great. Would never get anything smaller on an F350. I'm from the Stamford area.

    Why didn't you run it without a bolt on cutting edge for a season?

    I like the tires. They were on the truck when i bought it. I've had them on a few other vehicles and was always impressed with them as far as wear, they also ride pretty well and don't hum on the highway.
