    I turned 16 in September. I bought this truck in December. It's got no plow and I don't really intend to subject this truck to that much punishment. I'll borrow dad's plow truck for a while until I can afford my own.

    Anyways here's my new truck with me standing next to it on the day I brought it home.

    Nope. Credit freeze is still in full swing.

    I paid 7,300$ CASH for that truck. (Actually 6800$ cashier's check and a 500$ cash deposit)

    I own that truck 100% and nobody can touch it.

    It's a 99 F350 7.3L diesel 4x4 XLT regular cab longbed with 113,419 miles on the clock as it sits right now.

    Yeah, you got a killer deal on it! I don't think you could harm that truck with a plow! The F-350's are so solid.

    A plow will be just fine on that truck. As long as you aren't stupid with it (raming into piles, slamming it into the reverse when still going forward) and you'll be just fine.

    Nice truck- Welcome to Team Ford. I agree that you should throw a plow on her and let her pay for herself. Thats what those trucks were designed to do. Good luck with it.

    I tried borrowing $1,000 for my plow, they said I need to be employee'd or have a co-signer. Just for $1,000

    That's how I bought my truck- best way to go! Congrats on the truck- I'm not a Ford guy (as anyone will tell you)- but that truck should work out well for you!
