    this is my new work/plow truck
    2009 Ford F250, 5.4 Gasser
    Someone stole my last truck it was a GMC 2500 HD, so i decided to join the dark side and try a Ford, wow I thought my GMC was a tough truck, it was like a 1/4 ton compared to this beast. I may become a Ford fan yet! time will tell the, old GMC did a lot of work and i miss her. But so far im loving the new girl!!!!!
    The plow is a new poly arctic bottom trip edge, Vee plow with sick new galvanized finish, i haven't really had a real test yet (no snow) but i think it will be good. My last plow was a 8 ft polyplow arctic straight blade full trip, which was good but this plow is a lot nicer and better built.

    Bash away Ford h8rs!!!!:drinkup:

    Arctic comes out with some good economical ideas. Wish they'd upgrade those lights tho...Looks good for a fiord.

    Nice ride and welcome to Ford Family, one thing you may want to consider is to put a leveling kit on it and replace the front shocks at the same time. I did this on my 08 using Bilstien Coils and Shocks and it made a huge difference in the handling of the truck.

    Sweet ride! Cant wait to get my new 2011 Super Duty. In all honesty, I'll get ride of our 1 ton dump and just run our Super Duty's. Who knows, maybe I'll keep everything but a 2011 is in the plans. Good luck with her.

    very nice truck. On these newer f 250's if they have the plow prep package or the tow package they come pretty much level, if u put a leveling kit in the front it will be too high.

    Nice new truck, I agree, those lights look hideous.
