    Good looking rig!

    I like the short wheel base. I can't imagine how the guys with CrewCabs manouver those monsters.

    My truck is a regular cab, but it has a long wheel base, add to that the plow and the spreader box and things can get tight in a hurry.

    Good looking set-up you have there. I'm looking to buy a f-350 reg cab diesel, and mount a blizzard 810 to the front.

    The truck is a longbox 8 foot,i dont think you can buy a shortbox with a regular cab,only the supercab or crew i think,the pic does look like a shortbox though.I have one drive that is a bit tricky getting turned around in,glad i got the vee,wing er back and jockey a bit and i can do it.:D

    You are going to need some gaurds around your strobs for low hanging limbs. I also had too much flash in my mirrors. I gave up on my set-up like that and went to a cab center mount.

    I had thought about putting a guard around the strobes.I just finished making the rack a couple days ago,as soon as i get a chance ive got some 5/8 round stock that should make a good cage for them.I carry stuff in the bed a lot ,and run stuff up over the cab often,thats mostly why i put on strobes,figured they wouldnt be in the way for carrying stuff.

    Very nice truck, I love all the Ford's, I have the crew cab short box, it's not that hard to get use to. I do agree, next year I plan on looking for a used regular cab, 6' box.

    After having 2 real good storms,10-14 inches,i am glad a got the vee,had one drive with 20-24 inches in it with an uphill push,set it to Vee and broke a path:D :D a straight blade would have had trouble breaking a path,
    Even with all the warm weather were having i still have a couple 4-5 foot piles left in my yard,they were 8-9 feet high,in scoop that thing really pushes it up there :cool:the truck is really good in the snow too,the combo is real sweet
